NEW DELHI, Feb 27 (Reuters) - India's gold imports are
likely to come down because of lower inflation and more
attractive financial instruments for saving, the finance
minister's top economic adviser said on Wednesday.
Gold, used as an inflation hedge by Indian savers, is a
major driver of the country's record current account deficit and
the government raised tariffs on imports of the metal this year.
Inflation has trended downward in recent months.
