On Tuesday, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) issued a notification that moves the import of certain gold jewellery items—including finished products such as gold studded with pearls, diamonds, and precious stones, as well as parts—from the "free" category to the "restricted" category.

In response to these new restrictions, India's leading jewellery stocks showed mixed reactions in early trading on Wednesday, June 12, 2024. Titan Company's stock dipped, while Senco Gold reached a 52-week high, and Kalyan Jewellers experienced a rise. The restrictions apply to gold jewellery and parts imported from all countries except the United Arab Emirates, which is exempt due to its free-trade agreement with India.
