Meanwhile, gold is being traded at Rs 5,070 per gram (GST 995) and at Rs 5,085 (Cash 995) in Cuttack.

On the other hand, one kilogram of silver is being sold at Rs 58,400 (with GST) in Bhubaneswar on Tuesday.

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.
