Gold prices fall by ₹100 on lacklustre demand

Mumbai-India (Nov 13)  Gold prices came down by ₹100 to ₹32,050 per 10 grams at the bullion market on Tuesday owing to slackened demand from local jewelle₹despite a firm trend in overseas markets.

Silver followed suit and cracked below the ₹38,000-mark by plunging ₹700 to ₹37,450 per kg due to reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers.
