The results of India’s import duty on gold – that went up in January from 4% to 6 %, in June to 8 % and in August to 10 % – are obvious.

Every month India’s ministry of commerce and industry (DGCIS) releases a summary of principal commodity trade. Gold and silver imports are disclosed in Rupee. After converting the Rupee’s to dollars and than to kilograms, we know more or less how much precious metals were gross imported by India.
