Gold Schemes in Siliguri
Gold has historically been considered a stable investment for long-term returns. It is excellent for diversifying your portfolio and hedging against market risks. Jewellers offer schemes to invest in gold. Tanishq, Kalyan, Padmini Jewellery, etc., offer discounts on the purchase of gold through monthly deposits.

Alternatives to Gold Jewellery
The prices of gold have mostly shown an upward trend in the long run. However, the problem with using gold jewellery as an investment is that you end up paying "making charges", which are not recovered on sale. Consequently, the profitability of gold declines. Therefore, you can invest in alternatives such as: 1. Sovereign Gold Bonds: Various gold bonds are issued from time to time by the Reserve Bank of India. These bonds are denominated in grams of gold. The owner receives an interest payment of 2.5% on a semi-annual basis. At maturity, the bond can be redeemed at the current price of 24-karat gold. 2. Gold Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs): You can invest in a gold ETF issued by various fund houses. You can even invest in decimals of gold quantity, such as 0.02 grams. These ETFs are 100% backed by physical gold. 3. Gold Futures: These are exchange-traded contracts wherein the buyer agrees to get gold delivered at a future date, at a predetermined price.

How to Measure Gold Purity
You can verify the purity of gold through the hallmark provided by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS). Do not buy gold without checking the hallmark. All registered jewellers in Siliguri must stamp gold with the hallmark and the gold karats. You might get defrauded if you purchase un-hallmarked gold.
The purity of gold is measured in karats. 24-karat gold is the purest form, containing 99.9% gold. But since it is soft, making jewellery with it is difficult. Usually, 22-karat gold is used to make gold jewellery. It contains 22 parts gold and two parts copper, silver, nickel, and zinc alloys. It is also called 916 gold, equivalent to 91.6% gold. Furthermore, 14 and 18-karat gold is used to make designer jewellery.
The purity of gold is tested using: - Scratch test - Nitric acid test
However, these tests could damage your gold article and are not recommended.
Like in many other cities, sellers in Siliguri have an XRF Fluorescence Spectrometer, also called a Karatmeter, which can be used to check the purity of gold without damaging it. This instrument uses light dispersive properties of gold to check its purity.
Gold is one of the safest investments you can use for long-term returns in Siliguri. However, buying jewellery as an investment is only sometimes profitable due to charges lost in the making. It is better to buy bullion or gold coins if your purpose is an investment. You can also explore alternatives to investing in physical gold as they reduce the hassle of storing it and come with additional returns.
