Besides, subdued demand at spot markets also put pressure on the prices

At the Multi Commodity Exchange, gold prices for delivery in October fell by Rs. 78, or 0.26%, to Rs. 29,787 per 10 grams in business turnover of 490 lots.

Similarly, metal prices for delivery in far-month December declined by Rs. 23, or 0.08%, to Rs. 29,396 per 10 grams in 155 lots.

Analysts said the fall in gold futures was mostly attributed to a weak trend overseas and a rising rupee, which made dollar-quoted precious metal cheaper.

Slackened demand at domestic spot markets, too put pressure on the prices, they said.

Globally, gold prices fell 0.70% to trade at $1,323.80 an ounce in New York on Thursday.
