Silver also fell Rs 7 to Rs 68,700 per kilogram.
“Gold price fall was extended after stronger than expected US job market data allowed US Fed to continue with higher interest rate,” said an analyst at HDFC Securities.
In the overseas market, gold was quoting lower at USD 1,839.6 per ounce while silver was flat at USD 23.46 per ounce. The US job market data pushed the US dollar to a fresh one-month high. Rising interest rates and higher dollar index tend to weigh on yellow metals, the analyst added.
