Why does India needs to import gold?

India contributes up to 0.5% to the global gold production but consumes up to 30% of the gold produced (mined) in the entire world. As the consumption of gold in the Indian domestic market is way higher than what the country can produce by itself, India needs to import a huge amount of gold to fulfill its domestic demand.
