Silver Price in Raipur
Silver is in demand in Raipur as it is sold in many forms to cater to multiple uses in the city.

Silver is widely sold in Raipur in the form of trendy silverware, items meant for traditional rituals, gift articles for weddings and festivals besides fashionable jewellery.
Many customers in Raipur prefer investing in conventional modes of investment since they may be wary of some financial instruments such as government bonds and stocks due to several reasons, including but not limited to, rising inflation, irregularities in the market and corruption scams among many others.

Silver as an investment
Many consumers in Raipur invest in silver coins and bars. While it is common knowledge that silver has a store of value, many consumers also believe that unlike paper money, the white precious metal has no counterparty risk. Many investors in Raipur consider silver as one of the robust forms of valuable investment. According to industry observers, part of the reason for silver being held in high regard stems from the fact that its price is not dependent on any one factor which makes it vulnerable for easy manipulation on a global level for a long period. The rate of the precious metal depends on several factors including its scarcity, demand and currency devaluation among others.
Physical silver: For many consumers in Raipur, silver is a conventional form of investment. Silver is sold in various forms such as intricate silverware besides ornaments traditionally worn by women. Raipur has several jewellery stores which sell various types of silver articles such as items meant for traditional rituals and gift articles among others. Custom-made designer set pieces of jewellery in addition to anklets, necklaces, toe-rings, belts and bracelets are also in demand.
Silver contracts: Consumers trade silver in three exchanges, namely National Multi Commodity Exchange, Multi Commodity Exchange and National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX). SILVERHEDG is traded in units of 30 kg. SILVERM (silver mini) and SILVER (1000) are traded in units of 5 kg. Silver micro (SILVERMIC) is traded in 1 kg (unit). The maximum order size of Silver mini, Silver 1000 and Silver micro is 600 kg.
