Meanwhile, the silver price has also increased. Today, the metal is priced at Rs 69,518 per kg, up by 1,165.
This rise in gold is mainly driven by the rise in gold prices in the global market. With investors expecting more stimulus by the US, the prices of yellow metal have gone up for the third day in the international market.
