Notably, factors such as state taxes, excise duty, and making charges lead to changes in the price of gold in India.
The price of silver in India is determined by changes in prices internationally. It also depends on the movement of the rupee against the dollar.
If the rupee falls against its international counterpart and the prices remain consistent internationally, silver ends up becoming dearer.
