Import Duty: An import duty of 12.5% is charged on gold imported into the country.
Agriculture Infrastructure Development Cess: 2.5% of AIDC is charged on imported gold.
GST: The GST rate on gold is 3%
GST on making charges: When the physical gold is made into jewelry, it attracts making charges. A GST rate of 5% is to be paid on these making charges
Hallmarking charges: Rs 45 per article of gold has to be paid for the hallmarking. Do not try to save on the cost by cutting on hallmarking as it is the guarantor of gold quality in the country
The purity of gold is verified through a hallmark issued by the Bureau of Indian Standards. If you want gold in Godhra, do not buy it without checking the hallmark. Registered jewelers only sell hallmarked gold articles. Also, the articles must be stamped with gold purity in karats. You have a high chance of being defrauded on the purchase of un-hallmarked gold.
Gold purity is measured in karats. 24-karat gold is the purest form with 100% gold.
Due to being soft, it is hard to make jewelry with 24 Karat. So usually, 22-karat gold is used to make gold jewelry. This contains 22 parts gold and 2 parts alloys of copper, silver, nickel, and zinc. It is also called 916 gold as it is equivalent to 91.6% gold. The price of 916 gold is calculated by multiplying 0.916 by the price of 24 karat gold. Due to the softness of pure gold, 14 and 18-karat gold is used to make designer jewelry.
Purity: You must pay as per the purity of gold in karats.
Making charges: If you buy gold in the form of jewelry, you are charged making charges that might be usually up to 35% of the price of the gold article. These charges are a waste especially if the articles are for investment purposes. Also, these charges are negotiable as they are at the discretion of the jeweler.
Cost of stones in gold jewellery: A lot of times, gold jewelry containing stones is weighed as is, and the weight of the stone is also charged at the rate of gold. Beware of the fact before deciding to buy this jewelry. Ideally, you should pay for the actual gold used in making the jewelry and pay for the stones as per their rates.
Do not buy un-hallmarked gold: A hallmark ensures that the gold you are buying is of credible quality. In Godhra, all registered jewelers are mandated to hallmark every gold article.
