How is the Purity of Gold Evaluated in Ludhiana?

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.

  • Inflation

Gold price and inflation are directly proportional to each other. When inflation rates increase, people see gold as a valuable asset, believing told acts as a hedge against inflation. With the rise in demand, gold prices have increased.

  • Currency Exchange Rates

Gold is traded internationally in US Dollars, and since much of India's gold is imported, any change in the value of the Indian Rupee vis-a-vis the USD import gold prices. For instance, if the Rupee depreciates against the USD, then gold rates in India will go up.

During festivals and weddings, many people are out buying gold. With this increase in demand, the jewellers increase gold rates.

Differences Between 24-karat and 22-karat Gold

If you are new to the gold market, understanding the difference between 24-karat and 22-karat gold is crucial. For the uninitiated, karat is the unit used to measure the purity of gold in the final product. 24-karat denotes gold with the highest level of purity. The 22-karat variant has gold mixed with other alloys.

After the introduction of Goods and Service Tax (GST), Ludhiana's gold prices have increased. Before GST, the jewellers had to pay 10% as custom duty, 1% excise duty, and 1.2% VAT. Thus, the total amount of tax was 12.43%.

After GST, a flat 3% GST is levied and 10% as custom duty. 

Therefore, the total amount of tax now stands at 13%, impacting the price of gold items.
