The local jewellers are leaving no stone unturned to push their sale of gold on Akshaya Tritiya falling on April 28, 2017. They have stocked new collection and will be launched on the auspicious occasion of Akshaya Tritiya. The glitter of gold is always attracting people since times.


Buying gold on the day of Akshaya Tritiya is being considered as good omen.. The demand of gold, surges on the day of Akshaya Tritiya. It is believed that gold purchased on the day of Akshaya Tritiya brings everlasting prosperity and stays in the family for generations to come. Hence, people wait for the whole year for just few days to buy gold and other precious metals. Akshaya Tritiya and Dhantrayodashi are the two most significant days in Hindu calendar to purchase gold.


Apart from these two days, Pushya Nakshatra days are also considered auspicious to purchase gold. “The marriage season is on peak, the market sentiments are good and people have started calling our showroom to purchase gold on Akshaya Tritiya. We are anticipating good sale,” said Kishore Dharashivkar, President of Nagpur Sarafa Association and Team Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) Nagpur. He said, on Dushera the sale of gold was below average in city. “Demand for gold is always constant, people sometimes postpone it according to their financial condition but as the marriages are there, people will definitely rush at our showroom to purchase gold on the auspicious occasion,” he said. Gold on Saturday was quoted Rs 29,850 for 10 grams as against Rs 29,500 when compared with the year-ago period.


“Jewellers are requesting the Government to bring down the Import Duty on gold from 10 per cent to 2 per cent. If this is done, the prices of gold will plummet. But that is a distant dream and prices will remain constant with little fluctuation till Akshaya Tritiya,” Dharashivkar claimed.


Vilas Kale, Director of Tanishq Nagpur said, growth in economy would be the major factor for good sale. “Things are improving now and people are in the buying mood, ample marriage dates are some of the factors that will promote the sale on Akshaya Tritiya,” he said. He also noted that Tanishq had launched offer of 25 per cent off on making charges. “We have launched a fantastic collection for the fourth coming Akshaya Tritiya which is on April 28,” Kale said. Like Tanishq all small and big brands in city jewellery are giving good offers to attract customers. Gold which is the symbol of power, wealth and the prosperity is all set to glitter on Akshaya Tritiya,
