Investors keen on investing in SGBs should prepare as the first series of Sovereign Gold Bond for the financial year 2024-25 is anticipated to be available in June. Last year, the first series for the financial year 2023-24 was also launched in June.

The subscription period for each series ranged from a few days to a week, offering investors multiple opportunities to invest.

What are Sovereign Gold Bonds?

Sovereign Gold Bonds were introduced in November 2015 to reduce physical gold demand. These bonds allow investors to invest in gold at market prices, with the government guaranteeing the safety of the investment.

The issue price is determined by the Indian Bullion and Jewelers Association Limited (IBJA) based on the closing price of 999 purity gold.

Benefits of SGBs

Double Profit Potential: Investors receive returns based on market rates at maturity along with a 2.5% interest.

Security: No worries about the safety of physical gold as SGBs are held electronically.

Tax Benefits: Long-term capital gains tax is exempted, and it is not subject to GST.

Discounts: Online payments offer a discount of Rs 50 per gram. Loan Option: SGBs can be used as collateral for loans.

How to Purchase SGBs

Online and offline options are available through banks, post offices, and platforms like Stock Holding Corporation, BSE, and NSE.

Minimum investment is 1 gram, and the maximum is 4 kg per financial year with an 8-year tenure, allowing premature redemption after 5 years.

Investors interested in SGBs should stay updated with official announcements for the launch of Series 1 and seize the opportunity to invest in gold.
