On the other hand, silver lacked necessary follow up support at prevailing higher levels and fell by Rs 970 to Rs 54,730 per kg.

Traders said besides buying by retail customers and jewellery-maker for the wedding season, strong global cues pushed the metal's prices up.

The metal rose in global markets on speculation that central banks from major economies may take more steps to buoy growth as Greece prepares for elections that may determine whether the country leaves the eurozone.

In Singapore, gold gained 0.2 per cent to $1,626.77 an ounce.
