Prime Minister Narendra Modi will visit India's first International Financial Services Center (IFSC) at GIFT City Gujarat, near Gandhinagar, on Friday.
The Gujarat government said in a statement that during his visit, Modi will launch the "India International Bullion Exchange (IIBX)," the country's first international bullion exchange.
