Gold and jewellery establishments in the national capital stayed shut for the fifteenth day on Friday after the Income Tax Department conducted surveys following reports of alleged profiteering and efforts at tax evasion in the wake of government's demonetisation move.

The survey operations were done on November 10 in no less than four areas in Delhi-NCR district, including Dariba Kalan, Chandni Chowk and Karol Bagh.

The government on November 8 reported the demonetisation of 500 and 1,000 rupee notes to flush out black money.

Most of the jewellery houses have been shut since November 11 in the national capital.
