Silver Price in Bangalore
Bangalore is the second largest market for precious metals in Southern India, closely behind Chennai. This metropolitan city has a vast middle class population mainly driven by the famous IT sector in the city. Silver has become popular with the residents of Bangalore mainly as a form of investment. Silver generally offers good resale value and returns, which beats inflation and provides a secure and stable commodity to customers to bank on. Silver rates in Bangalore are driven by international prices of the commodity.
Gold is quite expensive when compared to silver, and so silver has an added advantage in the market for lower income groups in the city. The metal is sold by bullion dealers, jewelry stores, artefacts shops, silverware sellers and a variety of other outlets in the city. Silver is also available for residents in Bangalore through the national commodity exchanges MCX and NCDEX.
