At the Multi Commodity Exchange, the February gold fell by Rs 226, or 0.72%, to Rs 31,171 per 10 gm in a business turnover of 5,4295 lots.

The April delivery fell by Rs 220, or 0.69%, to Rs 31,586 per 10 gm in 240 lots.    

Market analysts attributed the fall in gold futures prices to a weak trend overseas where it fell to a one-week low as some investors indulged in selling after recent rally amid concern about the US budget deadlock.

Meanwhile, gold fell 1% to USD 1,694.35 an ounce in Singapore, the lowest level since December 7.
