Today in Rajasthan, a strong surge has been seen in the prices of gold and silver.
The central government has made it clear that from 1 June 2021, gold hallmarking will become mandatory in the country. After this, only 14, 18 and 22 carat gold jewelery will be sold.
Now customers will be able to get pure gold jewelery
The central government had announced in November 2019 that hallmarking for gold jewelery and artifacts would become mandatory from 15 January 2021. However, in view of the corona virus epidemic, the time to implement it was extended to 1 June 2021. The central government has made it clear that now it will not be taken forward. The center has given jewelers more than 1.5 years to prepare for gold hallmarking and register themselves with the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Gold Hallmarking will leave no scope for fraud in the purchase of gold jewelery and people will be able to get pure gold.
