 Ahammed, Chairman of Malabar Group said this decision by New Delhi to hallmark gold jewellery is aimed at protecting the public against adulteration. It will also obligate manufacturers and retailers to maintain a legal standard of fineness and purity.

“However, this rule will not have any effect on customers’ gold purchases outside India, as the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is the national standards organisation of India. They will get value for the gold depending on the gold karat age (18K, 21K and 22K)."

"Most of the jewellers have karat analysers and customers can check the purity of their gold, thus ensuring full value while selling or exchanging them,” he added.
