Gold Rate in Maharashtra
Maharashtra is one of the most prosperous states in India. The state, which includes cosmopolitan cities such as Mumbai and Pune, boasts of one of the largest demands of gold in the country. Gold rates in Maharashtra for different variants such as bullions and bars reflect the gold rates persisting worldwide. Mumbai, with its location in the western coast of India, has made it an ideal location for imports of gold, which form a significant portion of overall supply of the yellow metal in the country.
Gold is primarily traded in the form of jewellery in Maharashtra, with the rural population accounting for a substantial portion of gold purchases. Jalgaon in Maharashtra is also known as the ‘Golden City’ owing to its quality gold jewellery, which is sold far and wide. Gold rate in Maharashtra is related to gold rates in other parts of the countries, albeit with slight differences.
