The government on Wednesday further slashed the import tariff value of gold to $417 per 10 gram, while it was kept unchanged for silver at $738 a kg, in line with global trend.

The import tariff value is the base price at which the customs duty is determined to prevent under-invoicing. The tariff value on imported gold stood at $440 per 10 gram on Tuesday.

However, the tariff value on imported silver, brass scrap, vegetable oils and areca nut has been kept unchanged.
