DelhiDesk India’s gold imports are expected to decline by 24.15% to $35 billion in the financial year 2022-23 due to global economic uncertainties, according to data from the Ministry of Commerce. The country imported about 600 tonnes of gold between April 2022 and January 2023, with experts blaming high import duty on gold and global economic uncertainties for the decline. However, even with a substantial decline in gold imports, India’s trade deficit is projected to be $267 billion in the financial year 2022-23. India is the world’s largest importer of gold, which mainly meets the demand of the jewellery industry.
