Gold prices in Karnal
Karnal is an important rice-producing region of Haryana, lies within the National Capital Region that includes New Delhi. The city has proud historical antecedents, believed to have been founded by Karna of the Mahabharata. It has passed through the reigns of Nadir Shah, the Marathas, Raja Gopal Singh of Jind and Raja Gurdit Singh of Ladwa, before the British took over the administration.
Karnal is dotted with historical monuments such as tombs of emperors and saints, temples and churches, and a fort. It was a walled city up to 1862, when the fort was given over to the Education Department. The city is the headquarters of Karnal district and has a population of more than 3 lakh as per the 2011 census.
Gold is an important commodity in Indian households, and Karnal is no exception to this preference. People of Karnal buy gold to wear on occasions such as weddings and parties, as well as give gold jewellery as gift on birthdays and anniversaries. Gold is also popular as an investment avenue. Those who use gold or ornamental purposes also purchase rolled gold or gold-plated jewellery. These ornaments generally contain about 1% of gold that is polished on to the surface.
Karnal’s gold rates generally follow a pattern of being lower than the prices of the precious metal in its neighbour and the country’s capital, New Delhi. Without any local gold production, Karnal depends on imported gold to meet its needs. Hence, fluctuations in international gold prices are reflected in the prices seen in Karnal.
The prices for 24-karat and 22-karat gold differ here just like in any other place in the country. While 24-karat gold is bought by jewellers and those investing in gold coins and bars, 22-karat gold is favoured by consumers buying jewellery. Pure gold comes at 24 karat. The 22-karat gold is mixed with 2 parts of silver, nickel, copper or other metals to form a stronger and more durable alloy to make ornaments and gold articles with.
