India is the world's second-biggest consumer of gold.

Gold prices on Monday again touched the all-time high mark of Rs 38,470 per 10 grams in Delhi, news agency Press Trust of India (PTI) reported. The yellow metal advanced by Rs 50 on fresh buying from jewellers amid positive global trend. On Thursday, gold had hit a record high price of Rs 38,470 per 10 grams in the national capital.
