Current gold rates in Gujarat are a reflection of international gold rates, given the fact that a majority of India’s gold needs are met through import. Gujarat, with a long coastline and excellent ports is often the preferred mode for gold imports to enter India, ensuring it plays a significant role in the journey of this precious metal. Gold is an intrinsic part of Gujarat’s culture, with residents purchasing gold to celebrate festivals and other auspicious events.
