India rethinks jewellery sales oversight after slump in gold demand

goldmIndian authorities withdrew on Friday an amendment that made jewellers subject to anti-money laundering legislation and caused a drop in gold sales.

The Prevention of Money Laundering Act obliges banks and other financial institutions to report all cash transactions above 50,000 rupees ($765) to the government, including customers’ personal identification numbers or tax codes.


Transactions by jewellers in the world’s second-biggest gold consumer were added to the list in August but without specifying a financial threshold.
