MUMBAI (Reuters) - Indian gold futures hit a fresh all-time high on Tuesday, tracking gains in overseas markets and a depreciation in the rupee currency, but the surge dampened demand in the world's second biggest consumer of the precious metal, dealers said.

Domestic gold futures rose to 57,099 rupees ($699.19) per 10 grams, up nearly 4% so far in 2023.
