Jamshedpur is the district headquarters of Purbi Singhbhum district in Jharkhand. The city, when it was founded by Jamshedji Tata, was known as Sakchi or Kalimati. It was renamed in 1919 as Jamshedpur by Lord Chemsford, the Viceroy of India from 1916 to 1921. Jamshedji Tata set up India’s first iron and steel plant in the city in 1908. This planned city was built with a vision of providing not only accommodation but all basic amenities, infrastructure, religious and leisure spots and green cover.
Jamshedpur, a completely industrial city, is rich in minerals such as iron ore, coal, manganese bauxite and lime. In fact, the Geological Survey of India is looking for gold, platinum and other rare earth mineral deposits in the Singhbhum region that includes Jamshedpur. The major industries in the city are iron and steel, cement, tinplate manufacturing, truck production, and other related works.
Gold prices in Jamshedpur
Gold rates depend on the basics of demand and supply, but with gold, the demand often stays stable despite higher prices. Gold demand generally peaks during the wedding season – which is most of the year except during the monsoon.
Gold is generally traded in the form 24-karat (99.9% purity) and 22-karat (91.6% purity), though 20-karat, 18-karat and 14-karat gold jewellery is also in vogue. An average consumer, however, never buys 24-karat pure gold unless in the form of investments such as gold coins or bars, or e-gold and gold bonds.
