chairman & managing director, PNG Jewellers and director, Indian Bullion Jewellers Association
This year’s Dhanteras was extremely positive. Both rural and urban customers bought bullion, coins, gold and diamond jewellery in full swing. Consumers purchased wedding jewellery, too. Younger customers purchased silver coins and silver idols. It seems that the confidence of the customers is back. Hence, we feel this year overall business will be up by 25 to 30% compared to last year.
