India is the largest importer of gold, and the imports meet the demands of the jewellery industry.

Gold prices on Saturday remained at 5,770 per gram for 22K gold and 6.295 per gram for 24K gold. ‘K’ or carat is a term used to measure the purity of gold. A 24K gold is considered pure gold as it contains 99 per cent purity. It is in liquid form and cannot be used to make jewellery.

On the other hand, a 22K gold contains traces of other metals like copper and zinc. It can be used to make jewellery.

Here are gold prices for five major Indian cities on January 13, 2024:
