Indian gold rates depend on international gold prices because India mostly imports this precious metal from foreign markets. India is now the second-largest importer of gold. Commenting on the relation between gold demand and inflation, the World Gold Council in a recent report said, "In common with investors around the world, Indian savers turn to gold as a hedge against inflation. For each one percentage point increase in inflation, gold demand increases by 2.6%." later it added, "Tax regime: an increase in the rate of import duties since 2012 has depressed demand for gold by 1.2% per year."

Frank E. Holmes told Kitco News, "Gold rose to the highest in nearly a month as Treasury yields and the dollar slumped amid concerns rising prices may hinder a nascent economic recovery. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note fell after an initial increase following a US inflation report that showed a faster-than-expected rise in consumer prices last month. The greenback dipped to a session low. Both movements are helping boost demand for non-interest-bearing bullion. However, profit-taking on Friday trimmed the weekly gain."
