NEW DELHI (Scrap Monster): The escalating anxious that gold prices would fall as the Indian Rupee gains strength against the US Dollar has spiked to sell the domestic gold. As per the market review, Last days, the gold has gained as the jewelers have sold out the past orders for the precious metal.

Mr. Anish Jitendar Jain, director of a Mumbai based scrap gold firm said that the people are rushing to market to sell out their gold ornaments. They have panicked that the gold prices would plunge after the election results.

According to the market experts, the gold prices in India are likely to decline to about R25, 000-27,000 per 10 gm from the current levels of R30, 000 per 10 gm in the current financial year.

The wedding season would go on till the end of this May and the gold business would crawl by the advent of monsoon season, Mr. Haresh Soni, chairman of the All India Gem and Jewelry Trade Federation said.
