Advantages of Sovereign Gold Bonds
- Superior alternative to holding gold in physical form.
- Risks and costs of storage are eliminated. Investors are assured of the market value of gold at the time of maturity and periodical interest.
- No issues like making charges and purity in the case of gold in jewellery form.
- Held in the books of the RBI or in demat form eliminating risk of loss of scrip etc.
We would like to highlight that investors who had invested in the earlier tranches have gained approximately 17.36% (Tranche 1), 21.15% (Tranche 2) & 8.02% (Tranche III) respectively. Further, any capital gains arising from redemption during the buy-back window will be exempt from tax on capital gains.
With rising gold prices, we expect much higher participation from investors in this issue.
