Mumba-India (Oct 13)  Gold prices dropped a tad — by Rs. 30 — to Rs. 30,800 per 10 grams today, due to weak demand at the domestic spot market even as the metal traded strong overseas.

Silver eased by Rs. 100 to Rs. 41,200 per kg owing to lack of support from industrial units and coin makers,

Globally, gold rose 0.18 per cent to \$1,295.40 an ounce and silver by 0.17 per cent to \$17.26 an ounce in Singapore.
