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

Domestic gold futures rose to 61,490 rupees ($752.49) per 10 grams, up nearly 12% so far in 2023.
