The government has given the public an opportunity to buy gold at cheaper rates. Investors can buy gold at a much lower price than the market price under the sovereign gold bond system. The scheme is open for only five days (May 17 to May 21). That is, today is her last day. So if you want to take advantage of this scheme, don’t delay. There will be many other benefits besides exemption under income tax rules on profit from selling it. This information came from a statement issued by the Ministry of Finance. This is the first series of fiscal year 2021-22 by the government to invest in gold bonds. The Finance Ministry said in a statement that the sovereign gold bonds will be issued in six installments between May and September.
Let’s find out what is the value of the gold underneath.
