Easing inflation and a revival in stock markets could dent gold imports by India, the world’s biggest consumer, pushing  shipments down by about 35 per cent in value terms in 2012-13, a government panel said on Thursday. Indians found gold a better investment than stocks and an effective tool to hedge against inflation in the current fiscal year when imports are estimated to reach $58 billion. The government hopes gold imports will be $38 billion in the full 2012-13 fiscal year. “The stabilisation of basic macroeconomic conditions at home is expected to curtail the demand for imported gold to be held as an asset by Indian households,” C. Rangarajan, chairman of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh’s economic advisory council said, presenting the panel’s report on the Indian economy. India imported 969 tonnes of gold in 2011, almost the same amount as in the previous year, as volatile prices dented demand. Shipments will remain flat this year, the World Gold Council said. Gold priced in Indian rupees gained about 37 per cent in 2011. In comparison, the stock market in Asia’s third-largest economy tumbled almost a quarter during the same period. Analysts say heavy gold imports have contributed the most to the spike in India’s current account deficit, which is likely to be 3.6 per cent of gross domestic product in 2011/12, compared with 2.7 per cent in 2010/11. Higher gold imports meant the country spent more US dollars, increasing the total import bill and widening the current account deficit. Gold imports alone contributed nearly 40 basis points in the 130 basis points widening of India’s current account deficit between fiscal year 2008 and fiscal year 2011, research house Macquarie said in late November. A demand for dollars also weakened the Indian rupee by nearly 16 per cent in 2011. The restricted currency has since rebounded. India’s headline inflation has eased to 6.55 per cent in January, the lowest level in more than two years. Gold prices zoom Gold on Thursday regained the psychological level of Rs 29,000 after 10 weeks on frantic buying by stockists and jewellers for the ongoing marriage season amid a rising global trend. While gold spurted by Rs 300 to Rs 29,040 per 10 grams, a level last seen on December 13, silver held steady at Rs 57,400 per kg in thin trade. On the domestic front, gold of 99.9 and 99.5 per cent purity zoomed by Rs 300 each to Rs 29,040 and Rs 27,900 per 10 grams, respectively. Sovereigns followed suit and added Rs 50 to Rs 23,500 per piece of eight grams. On the other hand, silver ready held steady at Rs 57,400 per kg in restricted buying and weekly-based delivery rose by Rs 30 to Rs 57,275 per kg on speculator’s support.
