gold-400.NEW DELHI: India is considering raising the cost of gold imports, Finance Minister P. Chidambaram said on Wednesday, as part of efforts to curb the country's current account deficit, which widened to a record high of 5.4 percent of GDP in the September quarter.

 

A sharp rise in gold imports, a hefty oil bill and falling exports due to the global slowdown have kept India's current account deficit at persistently high levels.
