Silver prices also eased by ₹ 542 to ₹ 49,558 per kg against ₹ 50,100 per kg in the previous trade.

“Spot gold prices for 24 carat gold at Delhi were trading down by ₹ 274 reflecting overnight fall in global gold prices despite weaker rupee,” HDFC Securities Senior Analyst (Commodities) Tapan Patel said.

The retail jewellery stores are opening gradually in India with ease in lockdown, he added.

After a long gap, spot gold markets in the national capital reopened on Monday. The spot gold markets remained closed in the wake of the nationwide lockdown imposed since March 25 to curb spreading of COVID-19 infections. Lockdown restrictions have now been eased.
