Silver also followed suit and fell by Rs. 250 to Rs. 37,650 per kg due to reduced offtake by industrial units and coin makers. According to analysts, muted demand from local jewellers and retailers at the domestic spot markets mainly kept pressure on the precious metal, but a firm trend overseas capped the fall.
