NEW DELHI - India's gold imports in July plunged 55% from a year ago as a rally in local prices to a record high and a hike in import duty dampened demand in the world's second biggest consumer of the precious metal, a government source said on Monday.
The south Asian country imported 39.66 tonnes of gold in July, down from 88.16 tonnes a year ago, the source said, who was not allowed to speak to the media.
