Gold rate in Meerut
One of the oldest cities in India, and the base for a lot of freedom movements against the British since the 1850s, Meerut has now grown to become the largest manufacturer and distributor of sporting goods and musical instruments in the country. A city mentioned in countless mythological tales and steeped in the magic of pre-history, Meerut has also been the destination for a number of archaeological digs which found settlements dating back to the Indus Valley Civilization.
The people residing in Meerut have a greater affinity for gold than most other Indians, as tales of the inherent value of gold and its rarity have been passed down generations, and a large amount of the gold here is in the form of family heirlooms and ancient gold artefacts.
Residents of Meerut are moving towards a more progressive approach to buying gold for various reasons now, however, as gold is being viewed more as an investment that can generate long term returns, rather than just as ornamentation or jewellery.
