Delhi, the national capital, is also one of the largest consumers of gold in the country. All throughout the history of Delhi, gold has been a stable commodity used as jewelries, minted as coins, and also sold as pure gold bars and other forms. Gold rates in Delhi are influenced by various factors that have global implications. The city currently has a large buyer base for gold and related products, with consumers mostly opting for physical gold followed by trading exchanges.
Other than physical gold, consumers can also opt for gold as a commodity, which is traded in various commodity exchanges such as National Spot Exchange (NSEL), National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX) and Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX). The exchanges offer gold as spot contracts where you can buy gold at the spot and get it delivered at the earliest, and also as futures contract, where gold is purchased and sold at a later date, albeit on current prices.

Gold investments are available for consumers in forms as discussed above which are primarily as physical gold or as gold contracts. While physical gold in Delhi sells mostly in the form of jewelry and ornaments, gold bullions and coins are also quite popular with the residents of the city.
Physical gold: Gold jewelry is the choice item for people in Delhi. The city has a large number of dealers specializing in gold jewelry and ornaments. Some of the largest gold dealers in the country are based out of Delhi. Gold coins can also be purchased from various banks and private institutions in the city.
Gold contracts: Gold contracts can be purchased from any of the commodity exchanges operating in India. The contracts are available in differing quantities of gold such as 8 grams, 10 grams, 100 grams or kilos. The contracts can also be purchased for gold of varying purities such as 995 purity and 999 purity.
Gold is generally sold in units such as grams, sovereign, kilograms, tonnes, troy ounces, metric tonnes etc. The base price of gold is generally calculated for either 1 gram of gold or 10 grams of gold.
Gold prices often differ in Delhi when compared to other states and cities in the country because of a number of internal and external factors. Some of the factors for this apparent difference are as follows:
- A number of taxes that are applicable only in the city.
- Cost of transportation in and around the city.
- Making charges.
- Octroi charges, which is basically a charge levied on a variety of goods entering the city, in this instance, gold.
Importing gold can’t be done by everyone and is only possible for a number of designated importers such as banks, who sell it to various dealers at a margin in order to recoup the money they have spent. These dealers, in turn, sell the gold to retail outlets (goldsmiths), who basically fix a rate depending on the work they have had to carry out.
The issue of storing gold a few years earlier would have been a problematic thing as crime rates seemed to be high. So, a vast majority of people would choose to keep it in their own locker or in that of a bank. But as times have changed, so have the options for storing gold. For instance, there are plenty of private locker facilities in and around the country, which come with high-tech security features to prevent break-ins from happening. These lockers can be hired by people provided that they pay a subscription charge for a time period as specified by the storage facility.
There are a number of factors which influence the way gold is priced in the capital city. These may range from small domestic concerns to important international events. Some of the factors are as follows:
- US Federal Reserve: As gold is traded in dollars, any change to the actual value of the currency will bring about a change in gold prices. For instance, if the Federal Reserve decides to hike its interest rate even by the slightest of margins, gold prices will go up significantly. Basically, any positive or negative development with regards to the US dollar will influence how gold is priced around the world. Central banks from other key countries also play a part in gold prices, however with some of them opting for quantitative easing, chances of a major impact is relatively smaller.
- Geopolitical concerns: Gold has been lauded as a safe haven by million of investors around the world and rightly so, because people tend to invest in the metal whenever the market turns exceedingly volatile. The reason why markets fluctuate is largely due to geopolitical issues, like for instance, the US attack on Syria. As market thrives on volatility, demand for gold surges when such events occur. Another classic example is of the Lehman Brothers crash, which decimated the world economy in a short span of time. When the crash happened back in 2008, gold price was the first thing that hiked, as compared to other commodities,
- Local factors: Factors like transportation of gold in and around the city will also determine how gold likely to be priced.
While it is a popularly held belief that gold investments are often profitable, things aren’t so clear-cut when you consider the returns. When you buy or sell gold, you will also be required to pay taxes. For instance, buyers have to pay sales tax, service tax and the like while the sellers have to pay capital gains tax. Keeping them into account, gold investments for the short term will result in losses than profits. Especially, in the current scenario where gold prices aren’t climbing by much, gold investments just for the sake of getting good returns would be a bad idea.
However, if you are tempted to buy gold, make sure to do so when the metal is selling at its lowest and sell it when there’s more demand, so as to get positive returns.
Gold can be purchased in Delhi in various retail outlets like jewellery stores and the like all around the city.Before buying, however, you should compare rates from multiple outlets and also their making charges so that you get the best deal possible.
There are plenty of ways to track gold rates in Delhi. For instance, you can do so with a broking account, wherein you can track gold future, which gives a clear indication of the path the metal is going to take.Another way to track rates would be through the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX).
