How is the Purity of Silver Evaluated in Aurangabad?


The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) introduced hallmarks for silver in 2005. However, the Government of India is yet to make hallmarked silver products mandatory.
Many jewellers in Aurangabad may try to dupe customers by selling silver without a hallmark. And hallmark is a guarantee of the fineness of the metal. So, how do you ensure that the silver you are buying is good quality? Simply, adhere to the following checklist:

  • BIS logo
  • The purity grade/
  • Hallmarking identification mark 
  • Jeweller's identification mark 
  • Year of make


There are six grades of silver, ranging from 990 to 800. Note that 990 is silver in its purest form. In other words, every grade defines the percentage of pure silver in the final product.

Impact of GST on Silver Rates in Aurangabad


The introduction of the Goods and Services Tax in 2017 marginally increased the silver rates in Aurangabad. Earlier, gold purchases attracted a 1% Value Added Tax and 1% excise duty. These taxes were replaced by 3% GST after 01st July 2017.
However, the customs duty of 10% remains unchanged. Moreover, if you wish to use silver to make jewellery, an additional 5% GST will apply to the making charges.
So, as observed, the basic tax structure on silver purchases has gone up by 1% post-GST. But when we include customs duty and GST on making charges, the overall tax burden stands at 18%.
These changes have impacted silver prices in Aurangabad, making silver purchases slightly costly.
