Karur, located in Deccan India or South India, is a town in Tamil Nadu. This town is well known for its industries on textiles and shares a love for gold that is ubiquitous to India. Karur has a rich history in which it was ruled by the Chera, Madurai Nayaks, Hyder Ali and the British, making it quite a central location of trade and business, reaffirming its prominence in gold, be it in jewellery or commercial applications. Gold rates in this town are quite healthy owing to the flourishing industries in the area, but are also related to the rates prevalent in the international markets. As with many Indian towns and cities, gold investment through sale or otherwise gains the forefront in Karur during many festivities, especially during Deepawali and Dussehra.
Gold price in Karur
There are two variants of gold which flood the market, the 24 karat and the lesser sibling 22 karat. Karur serves as the administrative centre of the district and being an industrial focal point, also attracts quite a lot of businessmen and traders and gold trade forms an important factor in the business. Though 24 karat and 22 karat are the widely used variants, lesser purities of 18 karat and 14 karat are also sold, either for jewellery or commercial uses. Demand and supply play an important role in the price of gold, along with market trends, duties pertaining to import rates and the cess applied by the government. Overall, the price of gold in Karur stays marginally the same to the international rates.
24 karat gold
The purest variant of the yellow metal available in the market, it is also the softest and thus can’t be used on its own in making jewellery. 24 karat gold is always used in conjunction with other metals when it is being used for the purpose of making jewellery. That hardens the metal and renders it usable for daily wear and tear. 24 karat gold though is an ideal solution for those looking to invest in gold. As of March 10, 2010, a gram of gold of the 24 karat purity would cost INR 2968. This is actually a gram of the pure metal as indicated on banks’ charts. When purchased offline in gold coins, bars or jewellery, this rate will fluctuate. There had been a 5 year low in the rates of gold in 2015 and 2016 started off with gold rates slowly making their way back up. One gram of 24 karat gold has increased by around 400 rupees since January 2016 and it is expected that the rates will just keep on appreciating. The lowest value of gold was probably during the month of August 2015 wherein it was INR 2510 for one gram.
22 karat gold
Though a lesser sibling to the 24 karat gold and preferred less by aristocrats, it is the version of gold that is more feasible for buying in terms of jewellery and coins. This particular variant has a 92% purity and is marginally more affordable than its 24 karat sibling. Purchasing one gram of 22 karat gold in Karur would cost around INR 2760 as of March 10, 2016.
