Factors Determining Gold Rates in Jorhat

Many factors like supply and demand, government regulations and duties, the type and quality of gold, etc, determine gold prices. Here are some of the most crucial factors affecting gold rates in Jorhat:

Supply and Demand

Supply and demand of gold play a significant role in determining its price. When the supply is on the higher end, but the demand is low, the prices of gold at that time will be low. But when the demand increases, so does the price of gold. For example, during festivals like Diwali or Dhanteras, there is a heavy demand for gold in Jorhat. At that time price of gold will also increase.

Government Duties and Regulations

Government levies several duties on gold. These include:

  • Customs Duty - 12.5%
  • Agriculture Infrastructure and Development Cess (AIDC) - 2.5%
  • Social Welfare Surcharge - 10% of Customs Duty

There is also a 3% GST levied on gold purchases and a 5% GST on making charges for gold. Sometimes the government can bring policies in favour of the metal, which can result in the decline of gold rates in Jorhat.

Quality of Gold

The purer the gold, the higher its prices will be. The purity of gold is measured in karats (K). The purest form of gold is 24K. However, it is too malleable to make jewellery out of it. Hence, gold jewellery is mixed with other metals to give it strength. Although, if you want gold in its purest form, i.e. 24K, you can buy coins and bars.

How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Jorhat?

Gold is valuable only when it is pure. There are instances where customers are duped with impure gold. Hence, confirming the purity of gold is crucial.

The Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) is a government authority that certifies the purity of gold. According to BIS, the following factors are to be kept in mind when buying gold.

  1. BIS Mark

    Jewellery hallmarked by BIS will have a BIS logo on it. Remember that since BIS is the only authorized laboratory in India for gold certification.

  2. Karat

    Karat is a scale to gauge gold's purity. While 24 karat gold is the purest, it is too soft for use. Hence, other metals are added and the gold available in the market is often 22 Karat.

  3. Jewellers Identification Mark

    The gold you buy should also carry an identification mark by an authorized jeweller. This helps ensure the gold is from a credible source. The mark can also be helpful in the case of disputes.
