Gold Rate in Surat
Surat is a port city situated on the banks of the Tapti river, and was a major seaport in the West India until the East India Company shifted the presidency to Bombay (now Mumbai). Surat is popularly known for its diamond cutting and polishing, textiles, and for diamond-studded gold jewellery manufacturing. Surat itself accounts for 90% of the world’s diamond cutting and polishing, 99.9% of the country’s total rough diamond cutting and polishing, and 90% of the country’s total diamond exports. The demand for gold in the city is boomed with the falling gold prices with a 5 year low mark. Like all cities in India, Surat’s demand is keeping up with the exports and manufacturing jewellery, and keeping up with the upcoming festivities like Teej, Diwali and the big Indian wedding season. Jewellers are expecting to have a good season this year despite the fall in price of the precious metal worldwide.
