Imphal, the capital of Manipur, is one of India's oldest cities. It is located 786 meters above sea level and is renowned for its beautiful scenery and lush vegetation. Manipur is home to several tribes, and Imphal serves as the state's cultural centre. The government systematically mapped Manipur's geology and found various minerals like chromite, limestone, nickel, malachite, azurite, copper and magnetite (PGE). 

 

The country is one of the largest gold consumers globally, primarily using gold for jewellery and investment purposes. Unlike other countries that use gold for industrial purposes, gold in Imphal is primarily an investment vehicle.

 

Although gold is high in demand throughout the year, the demand for this precious metal increases during the wedding and festive seasons. While earlier investing in gold meant visiting a jeweller physically, nowadays, people can also invest in digital gold. There are plenty of options to choose from.

Factors Affecting Gold Prices in Imphal

 

  • Inflation causes an increase in the demand for gold, thus impacting its prices. This is because investments in gold have historically yielded inflation-beating returns.
  • The fluctuations in the value of the Indian rupee against the US dollar impact the gold rates. If the value of the Indian rupee plummets, the gold rates rise. This is because the global gold trade is carried out in US dollars.
  • If gold rates in international markets increase, the rates in Imphal will also witness a hike.
  • Government policy changes cause gold rates to increase or decrease depending on the impact those policies have on the country's overall economy.
  • Taxation and import regulation changes are also major impacting factors. This is because India meets most of its gold demands via imports from other nations.

How does GST Impact Gold Rates in Imphal?

 

The implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) raised the price of gold in Imphal. In the pre-GST era, buyers had to pay 1% customs duty and 1.2% value-added tax (VAT) when purchasing gold.

After the implementation of GST, you have to pay 3% GST on the price of gold and 5% GST on the making charges of the gold jewellery. So, the GST entails higher costs than customs duty and VAT put together.

Three types of import duties apply to gold imports to India -

  • Custom Duty (12.5%)
  • Agriculture and Infra Tax (2.5%)
  • Social Welfare Surcharge (10% of Custom Duty)

Total import duty (excluding GST) is therefore around 15% (12.5 +2.5) + a minimal Social Welfare Surcharge of 10% of Custom Duty (not the gold price).

How to Determine the Purity of Gold?

 

The gold rates vary depending on the purity of the gold. According to the World Gold Council, 24-karat gold is 99.99% pure, while 22-karat gold is 91.67% pure.

 

22-karat gold is also known as 916-hallmarked gold, owing to its purity of 91.6%. The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) carries out the hallmarking of gold jewellery.

 

Before buying gold, check for the hallmark to assess the gold's quality. You must look for the following hallmarks before purchasing a gold article -

  • BIS Logo
  • Year of Production
  • Karat Value
  • Identification Mark or Number of Jeweller

There are two simple ways of determining the purity of gold at home:

  1. Immerse it in water. Your gold is pure if it sinks to the bottom.
  2. Place the gold item close to a magnet. If the gold is pure, it won't be drawn to the magnet.
