Gold Rate in Bangalore
Gold is a very popular commodity in Bangalore, and in India in general. Gold rates in Bangalore are decided by international trends. Gold prices are highly dynamic and are affected by a wide range of factors, from strength of the US Dollar to seasonal demand in the country. Gold is purchased in Bangalore primarily as jewelry and ornaments, following the trend of most of the country when it comes to gold usage.
Gold is also traded as a commodity in exchanges such as Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX), National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX) and National Spot Exchange (NSEL). The contracts are available both as spot contracts where gold can be bought and delivered right away, and futures contracts wherein gold is bought and sold at a later date.
Indians have a history of banking on gold more than the actual banks. Gold therefore also acts as an investment portfolio for consumers in Bangalore looking at stable and long term returns from the metal. There are many large and small gold dealers in Bangalore that are exclusively into precious metals and form the backbone of the local gold industry.

Failure To Tax Old Gold Could Lead To Tax Evasion
A recent ruling by the finance ministry stipulated that selling old gold jewellery would not attract GST. With nearly 75% of the Indian jewellery market unregistered and unorganised, there were many taxpayers who were struggling under the new tax regime.
While this move helps ease their tax burden, there is a chance this could lead to tax evasion. Unregistered individuals selling their old gold would not attract GST, thus enabling jewellers to procure gold through illegal means and list it as a purchase of old gold. In this way, the jeweller avoids paying tax for the gold, increasing the incidence of smuggling.
Analysts have warned against such practices and also fear the slow shift to making jewellery an organised sector.
