The RBI Sovereign Gold Bond (SGB) Scheme is a kind of government bond, that is simply translated to gold. At present, the traditional Indian investors and common buyers are quite concerned about investing in gold, because during the pandemic it has proved to be a significant hedge against inflation. In October 2021, the Indian gold rates are not as high as the 2020’s peak levels, but before Diwali, the precious metal is gaining more demand.

For Indians, gold jewelleries have always been the first choice, when it comes to gold investment. But now, more awareness and return-oriented thinkings have also led them towards virtual gold options. The RBI Sovereign Gold Bond (SGB) Scheme, in that case, is one of the best options for virtual gold investment. Because it will assure the investor of the RBI, on behalf of the central government.

Benefits

In SGB, an investor can get a fixed interest rate of 2.5%, payable half-yearly, which will be paid on the scheme’s maturity along with the principal amount. No other gold investment will offer this interest amount with the security of RBI. Additionally, no ‘capital gain tax’ is also charged on the redemption of the bond. However, the RBI Sovereign Gold Bond (SGB) Scheme is also popular for its easy liquidity. The SGBs are issued for 8 eight years term by the government, but even before 8 years, one can take redemption from the bond by selling it. An investor can any time sell the bond on the secondary market for immediate liquidity. Hence, if an investor misses the RBI subscription date for SGB, still it will be possible for him/her to buy the bond from the equity markets. Also, by investing in SGB, one can avoid the burden of holding physical gold.

Upcoming tranches
