Gold price likely to rise by Rs 2000 per 10 gm: Religare Broking

Sugandha Sachdeva, VP- Commodity & Currency Research, Religare Broking said considering that India largely imports gold to meet domestic demand, the increase in import tax is likely to lead to a proportionate rise in the price of domestic gold by around Rs.2000 per 10gm, factoring in international gold prices which are trading with a slightly negative bias. With domestic prices surging, demand is likely to take a hit at a time when the country is already grappling with high inflation, she said. 

"In an attempt to stem the steep decline in rupee and curb the widening trade deficit, which has soared to record highs of $23.33 bln in May amid rising import bills, the government has raised the import duty on gold by 5 percent in a surprise move, which makes the import duty on gold as 12.50 percent, while the effective duty on gold will be 15 percent, including the 2.5 percent agri cess, as social welfare surcharge of 0.75 percent has been exempted. In all, the net duty change will be 4.25 percent. Gold also attracts additional 3 percent GST as well, which means the total levies on gold will be 18.45 percent," she explained.
