Another citizen Neha Kale said, “As per our plan made some months back, we bought four gold bangles of 400 grams as Gudi Padwa also marks the beginning of the new year and the harvest season in Maharashtra.”

Saurabh Gadgil, chairman and managing director, PNG Jewellers, said, “The response was overwhelming today. There’s a good demand for gold, silver and diamond jewellery. Prices were not a deterrent and the mood was bullish.”
