What are the Factors Affecting Gold Prices in Akola?

Here are some factors that play a significant role in determining gold prices in Akola:

  • Inflation
    Gold is often seen as a hedging tool against inflation. Hence, when inflation levels are high, people hold their wealth in the form of gold. With rising demand and short supply, the price of gold increases.
  • Government's Gold Reserves 
    The Government of India owns gold reserves. It buys and sells gold through the Reserve Bank of India. The price of gold in Akola and the rest of India may change depending on whether the Government buys or sells gold.
  • Interest Rates
    As interest rates decline, people do not get favourable returns on fixed-income instruments. In effect, they use their deposits to buy gold, driving up its demand and, consequently, the price.          
  • International Movement
    India imports substantial quantities of gold from overseas markets. Hence, changes in import duties or currency exchange rates impact gold prices within the country, including Akola.
  • Jewellery Market
    During the wedding and festival seasons, the gold rates increase. This is caused by increased demand for gold which the existing supply cannot meet.

How Does GST Impact Gold Rates in Akola

The implementation of GST has had an impact on gold rates in Akola because it has changed the way that taxes are applied to gold transactions. Prior to the implementation of GST, gold was subject to a value-added tax (VAT) of 1% and a sales tax of 1%. Under GST, these taxes were replaced by a single tax called the Goods and Services Tax (GST), which is levied at a rate of 3% on the value of gold.

In addition to the GST on the value of gold, a making charge of 5% is also applied to gold when it is made into jewellery. This making charge is in addition to the GST on the value of the gold itself.

Overall, the implementation of GST has resulted in an increase in the taxes applied to gold transactions in Akola, as the GST rate of 3% is higher than the combined VAT and sales tax rate of 2% that was applied prior to GST. As a result, the price of gold in Akola has increased due to the GST.
