Jewellery firms surge after RBI eases gold import norms

Shares in Titan Co Ltd surged on Thursday after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) eased gold import rules by allowing seven more private agencies to ship the precious metal. The stock was trading up 10.2 percent as of 9:25 a.m.

The move by the RBI, announced late on Wednesday, could augment supplies of gold, according to analysts.

Among other jewellery companies Gitanjali Gems gained 13.5 percent, Rajesh Exports Ltd rose 12.73 percent.

Meanwhile, Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri Ltd jumped 20 percent and Shree Ganesh Jewellery House rose 5 percent.
