Mumbai-India (May 15)  Silver prices fell by 0.59 per cent to Rs 42,801 per kg in futures trade on Thursday as speculators
reduced exposures.

business turnover of 44 lots. Similarly, the white metal for delivery in July declined by Rs 206, or 0.49 per cent, to Rs 42,142 per kg in a business volume of 314 lots.
