Gold is a commodity that is subject to various taxes when it is imported into and sold within India. The specific taxes that are applied to gold depend on the nature of the transaction and the form in which the gold is held.

  • Import Duty: When gold is imported into India, an import duty of 12.5% is charged on the value of the gold. This duty is levied by the government to protect domestic industries and to raise revenue.
  • Agriculture Infrastructure Development Cess: In addition to the import duty, a 2.5% Agriculture Infrastructure Development Cess (AIDC) is also charged on imported gold. The AIDC is a tax that is levied on the value of certain imported goods, including gold, to fund agriculture infrastructure development in the country.
  • Goods and Services Tax (GST): The Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a value-added tax that is applied to the sale of goods and services in India. For gold, the GST rate is 3%. This means that when gold is sold, a GST of 3% is charged on the value of the gold.
  • GST on making charges: When gold is made into jewellery, the process of transforming the raw material into a finished product is known as "making charges." When gold is made into jewellery, a GST rate of 5% is charged on the value of the making charges. This means that when gold jewellery is sold, a GST of 5% is charged on the value of the making charges in addition to the GST on the value of the gold itself.

Gold as an Investment

Unlike other entities, the price of gold is not just centred on demand, supply and fiat value. It is considered a stable investment for long-term returns, even during periods of high economic volatility. It is an excellent instrument to diversify your portfolio and hedge against market risks.

Gold jewellery has traditionally been used as an instrument of investment. However, the problem with using gold jewellery as an investment is that you end up paying making charges, which still need to be recovered on the sale of the very same articles. Consequently, the profitability of gold declines. Therefore, you can choose to invest in different alternatives:

  1. Gold biscuits or coins are a good investment alternative to jewellery and fetch excellent long-term returns. 
  2. Sovereign Gold bonds (SGBs): Various gold bonds are issued from time to time by the Reserve Bank of India. These bonds are measured in grams of gold. The owner receives an interest payment of 2.5% on a semi-annual basis. At maturity, the adhesive can be redeemed at the then price of 24-karat gold. 
  3. Gold Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs): You can invest in a gold ETF issued by various fund houses. Via these funds, you can even buy gold in decimals, such as 0.02 grams. These ETFs are 100% backed by physical gold of high quality.
  4. Gold Futures: These are gold derivatives that can be traded on exchanges.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Ahmadnagar?

The purity of gold can be verified through the hallmark provided by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Only buy gold items after checking the hallmark. All registered jewellers must stamp gold articles with the hallmark and the gold karats. There are very high chances of being defrauded in purchasing un hallmarked gold. 

The purity of gold is measured in karats. 24-karat gold is the purest form, containing 99.99% pure gold. However, it is too soft to be moulded into jewellery. Thus, 22-karat gold is used to make gold jewellery. This contains 22 parts of gold mixed with two pieces of metals like copper, silver, nickel and zinc. It is also called 916 gold, equivalent to 91.6% pure gold. The price of 916 gold is calculated by multiplying 0.916 by the price of 24 karat gold.

The purity of gold is tested using various tests such as:

  • Scratch test
  • Nitric acid test

However, these tests could damage your gold article and are not usually advised. 

Many sellers in Ahmadnagar have an XRF Fluorescence Spectrometeralso called the 'Karatmeter' - which can be used to check the purity of gold without damaging it. This instrument uses the light-dispersive properties of gold to check its purity.
