Gold is considered as the best investment for the future. As festivals and wedding seasons approach, gold prices are on peak. Well, gold price today is Rs 38,465 per 10g in the national capital. But, do you have an idea of gold rates in the neighbouring country Pakistan?
Recently, Pakistan has opposed the Indian government's abrogation of Article 370 in Jammu and Kashmir, which has affected Pakistan's economy.

Due to acute debt-crisis, fuel prices have already touched the sky in Pakistan, while the gold price has jumped twice what it costs in India.

India on August 5, revoked Article 370 of the Constitution to withdraw the special status given to Jammu and Kashmir and bifurcated the state into two Union Territories -- Jammu and Kashmir, and Ladakh.
Soon after, Pakistan suspended the Samjhauta Express train and Thar Express train service with India. Pakistan's decision to suspend the services of the two trains came after it expelled Indian High Commissioner Ajay Bisaria on Wednesday and decided to downgrade the diplomatic ties with India over what it called New Delhi's "unilateral and illegal" move to revoke the special status of Jammu and Kashmir.
