    • Jewelry – Jewelry has been the preferred choice of Indians when it comes to buying gold. Traditionally jewelry was not seen as an investment but people are warming up to it now. Gold jewels can be exchanged or sold, making it a decent investment option in case of emergencies.

    • Gold Accumulation Plans – These plans provide an investor with the opportunity to deposit a specific amount on a monthly basis. After completion of an agreed upon time period the investor can choose to cash in the deposits in exchange for gold coins or jewelry.

    • Gold Bullion Bars – Gold bars are seen as a safe investment and every country invests in keeping certain gold bars as reserves. Kolkata has a large number of high net worth individuals and gold bars can be a sound investment opportunity for them. These bars are 99.5% pure and can weigh up to 1 kg each, making them excellent high value investments.

    • Gold Bullion Coins – These coins are an ideal investment option for those with low reserves. Coins can be purchased according to weight, weighing anywhere between 1g to 10 g. With no wastage and making charges, coins offer better value for money than jewelry and can also be converted into liquid assets if need be.

    • Allocated Gold Accounts – A lot of people worry about the safety of their gold investments and this plan is perfect for those who wish to own gold but do not want to keep it with them. Gold accounts ensure that the gold is safe and secure in banks, with the owner having freedom to access it at any point.

    How are Gold Rate fixed in Kolkata?

    Gold rates are often set on the same principle in all the states and cities in the country. But, as variables often differ in different states and so does the demand, we see prices that are dissimilar in most places. Coming to the part about how gold rates are fixed, we can say that it hinges on a number of factors. These include:

    • Rate of gold in the international market: The reason why gold rates in the international exchange matters is because much of the bullion in the country is imported. Gold rates in the global market depends on how well the US dollar is performing. This is because the metal is mostly trade in US currency.
    • Import duty: Every state has a different import duty which is added on top of the duty that should be paid for importing the metal into the country. Gold prices in the market may vary depending on the duty paid at a particular point in time.
    • Bank margins: Usually, banks are one of the few institutions that are designated to import gold into the country. When banks get the metal into the country, they decide on a profit margin before selling the same to the retailers. The percentage cut banks decide to take will also have a bearing on how gold rates are set.
    • The MCX: The Multi Commodity Exchange, known commonly as the MCX, is a market where commodities are exchanged. Prices on this index will impact how gold is priced in a city, in this case, Kolkata.
    • Associations: Bullion association is an association of traders and retailers who come together to discuss any and all of their gold related concerns. To set a rate, these traders often consider some of the biggest retailers and their latest pricing while also taking into account the profitability of the rate they set.

    Like every other city in India, fixing gold rates in Kolkata involves a set procedure. While the process is the same, the various costs involved is what brings the rate difference. In this section, we tell you how gold rate in Kolkata is fixed.

    • Import duty
    • GST on gold
    • Marginal cost of banks importing the gold
    • Local bullion association along with some of the leading dealers in the city
    • Cost of gold on the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX)
    • The Rupee-US dollar dynamic

    When fixing gold prices, all the aforementioned factors come into play. The import duty though remains the same for all imports, same is the case with the GST too. After this, the local association decide on what price better reflects the market dynamic (demand, inflow, outflow etc). Once all this are taken care of, the performance of the US dollar and the Indian rupee provides direction to prices.

    Factors behind the rise of Gold Price in Kolkata

    Up until 2003, gold prices around India remained around the Rs.3,500 bracket, but things changed soon after the Lehman Brothers crash happened in 2008. When the markets crashed, people felt that investing in gold, whose prices were rising significantly would help offset their losses. Now, ever since 2008, gold prices have risen by more than 750% within a decade.

    Future of Gold Price in Kolkata

    While we have mentioned how gold prices have gone up over the last couple years, there is a chance that bullion trading has seen its best days already. These days there’s very few reasons why gold rates should spike, unless the world again goes through a bad debt situation like it did in 2008. Som expect gold prices to remain more or less flat for much of 2017.

    Gold loans in Kolkata

    Availing loans against gold has become rather common of late with several NBFCs like Muthoot Finance and Manappuram Gold Loans have been established with this as their core business principle. There are also several other NBFCs and banks which offer loans against assets like gold. To provide a loan, they usually value the gold at the current day’s rate and will keep it as a collateral tilt he borrowed amount is completely repaid with interest.

    Selling Gold in Kolkata

    Selling gold in Kolkata is relatively simple as nearly every jewellery store offers you this service. All you’d have to do is walk into a jeweller near you, who will value your gold and pay the total amount based on how much it weighs. However, what we suggest is that you go to reputed jewellers and retailers so that you don’t get hoodwinked by scamsters.

    These are some of the most important things you should know about investing in gold in Kolkata. If you are really looking to invest in the metal, be advised that rates haven’t seen the best of days in the past few months and isn’t likely to go up any time soon.

    What impact has GST had on gold rate in Kolkata?

    As per the Income Tax regulations, gold as a commodity is taxable under the law and with the introduction of Goods and Services Tax (GST) on 1st July, 2017, the price dynamic has underwent a major rejig. As per the old law, gold was taxed at 12.2% , of which 10% was the import duty, 1% was the excise duty, while the remaining 1.2% was the VAT complement of the tax. At present, the the excise and VAT duty have been scrapped and has been replaced with a GST of 3% and the 10% import duty still remains.

    On the retail front, there are a few different components to look at. For instance, there’s the 5% making charge on top of the 10% import duty, and 3% GST.

    Ways to invest in gold in Kolkata

    Being a major metropolitan city, Kolkata certainly offers a lot of scope for gold investment. For people looking to invest in the yellow, there are plenty of avenues to choose from. These range from obvious consumer-centric instruments like jewellery and gold coins, while there are also other investment-driven options one can explore like gold bullions and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs).

    Things to know before investing in gold in kolkata

    In this section we will talk about the various things you should know about before investing in gold. Here are a list of things every gold investor must know before making their purchase:

    • The purity level: Gold is available in multiple levels, which are based on how pure they are. These are four of the mostly known ones, i.e,, 14 karat (58.33% pure), 18 karat (75% pure), 22 karat (92% pure), and 24 karat (99% and above). A 24K gold is also considered to be the purest form of gold. For jewellery purposes, 22K gold is commonly used as it offers designers a certain level of customizability. Another reason 22K gold is used instead of 24K is because the latter is far too brittle to withstand complex and intricate designs.
    • What the labour charges are: Every jeweller, irrespective of where they are based, add what is known as labour charge. This is the compensation for the man hours spent creating a piece of jewellery. Sellers usually add this amount to the overall cost of the product.
    • Certification: Every gold type is certified with an authentication letter and most jewellers provide the a certificate stating that their gold is either KDM or Hallmark certified. Make sure your gold has the right certification before making the purchase.
    • Timing of the purchase: The timing of your purchase can have a bearing on how much your jewellery could cost. For instance, during festive seasons when demand is high, you are likely to spend more as opposed to buying during the off season. Also be on the lookout for additional offers which reputed jewellers put up from time to time.
    • Keep the weight in mind: When a jewellery is weighed before a sale, any other stones used (emerald, diamond etc) will also be included in the pricing. This may increase the price of your jewels further. So, keep this in mind when purchasing studded jewellery.

    What factors influence gold rate in Kolkata

    There are a number of reasons why gold is priced different in almost every other city in the country.

    • One of the things that play a role is logistics. You see, India has very few gold mining companies and in order to make up for the shortage, we import gold from other countries like Switzerland, Saudi Arabia, the USA, Ghana, Peru, Bolivia among others.
    • The second factor is the Central Bank, which sometimes imports gold when there’s an especially high demand for the metal. As a consequence of this, gold prices also rise up.
    • The third factor is the Indian Rupee. Depending on how good or bad the rupee is performing, gold rates differ. For instance, if the rupee gains upto 100 points on the dollar i.e., if the value falls from say Rs. 64 for 1 USD to Rs.62 per 1 USD, gold rates drop. This is because the importing cost decline due to a stronger rupee. The opposite is also true, if rupee falls and dollar gains, gold rates increase.

    What’s the difference between KDM and Hallmark gold

    KDM and hallmark are two entirely different things, in that KDM alludes to the process of using other metals to make jewellery that would last long. On the other hand, Hallmark is the certification provided to piece of gold based on its purity levels. The latter is follows a clear cut instruction set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), the arbitrator of sorts for gold standards in India.

    Gold or Gold ETF: Which is a better option?

    Whether a gold or gold ETF is a better option depends on the reason behind your purchase. If, for instance, you are buying gold for personal consumption, there’s no other way than to buy gold. On the other hand, if you want to buy gold from an investment point of view, you could take a clear look at ETFs. But, before going for it, you should know that ETFs aren’t the same as physical gold, in that you won’t have it with you. Also, ETFs are taxable in you register any capital gains after you liquidate your assets.

    News About Kolkata Gold Rate

    • Gold Close to 14-month Highs on Dovish Federal Reserve

      Gold prices surged by over 1% on expectations of a dovish statement by both the U.S. Federal Reserve and European Central Bank presidents, which indicated possible interest rate cuts.

      Spot gold rose by 1% to $1,352.23 per ounce while U.S. gold futures recorded a 0.8% rise to $1,358.34 per ounce.

      Markets and analysts are cautious ahead of the Fed’s economic projections after its meeting, though many expect it will not change borrowing costs for the moment.

      With major global central banks adopting dovish stances due to global tensions impacting economic growth, bullion demand could continue to see steady growth.

    • Subdued Dollar and Rate Cut Hopes Spur Gold On

      Gold rose to a weekly high in trading as expectations of an interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve supported the metal. A weak U.S. dollar and soft inflation data also bolstered bullion.

      Spot gold rose by 0.3% to $1,336.56 per ounce, with U.S. gold futures also rising by 0.3% to $1,340.3 per ounce.

      Disappointing U.S. inflation figures served to reinforce expectations of an interest rate cut by the Federal Reserve, which is seen as positive for gold. A weakened U.S. dollar also supported gold’s position. The benchmark currency fell by 0.1% against a basket of global currencies, making gold cheaper for non-dollar holders.

      13 June 2019

    • Low Dollar Boosts Gold’s Profile

      Gold prices rose to their strongest position in almost two weeks as the dollar fell. Spot gold rose by 0.3% to trade at $1,325.51 per ounce as the dollar weakened on rising optimism of a break in the Sino-U.S. trade deadlock.  

      There was also a rise in U.S. gold futures on positive investor sentiment. Futures rose by 0.5% to trade at $1,328.90 per ounce.  

      Analysts state that prices are set to rise in the short term but prices could see a rebound if there is a slowdown in the global economy. It is hoped that a thaw in trade relations between the U.S. and China could boost production and markets.

    • Rural Gold Demand Slated to Rise After Budget

      Demand for gold is slated to rise among rural Indian buyers following proposals in the Interim Budget, according to traders. With this sector driving close to 60% of total gold consumption in the country, it is expected to boost the flagging gold market. 

      The jewellery industry is hoping tax sops to the middle class and waivers for farmers will translate into higher gold jewellery sales, especially since the precious metal is still considered a valuable asset for this sector.  

      Gold rates in Kolkata saw a marginal rise following the budget announcement, though jewellery offtake remained more or less static. While traders and jewellers have welcomed the tax breaks, they are dissatisfied that import duty on gold and silver has remained the same, which would affect their bottomlines.

    • Gold Prices At 8-Month High on Fed Rate Hike Pause

      Gold prices held steady as the Federal Reserve’s monetary tightening policy appeared to be ending, boosting interest in the yellow metal. Spot gold remained at a stable $1,319.87 per ounce while gold futures rose 0.7% to trade at $1,319.30 per ounce. Spot gold has seen a nearly 2.8% rise in value during the month on strong global interest. 

      U.S. interest rates were steady as the Federal Reserve indicated it would put off further rate hikes, indicating rising economic uncertainty. The dollar index fell after the Fed’s cautious assessment of the economic outlook.  

      Bullion usually rises on low interest rate expectations as the opportunity cost of holding non-yielding bullion reduces, which dents demand for the U.S. Dollar. The long-awaited trade talks between the U.S. and China also began yesterday, which had markets slightly shaky. 

      U.S. payroll data increased for January 2019 which indicated labour strength in spite of a recent perceived loss in business confidence.

    • On demand for safer investments, gold prices rise on Wednesday

      It needs to be mentioned here that Asian shares turned tall on the first trading day of 2019 as the economic data from the world’s second largest economy i.e., China erased the gains made in U.S stock futures. The Caixin/Markit Manufacturing Purchasing Managers Index (PMI) for the last month of 2018 i.e., December fell to 49.7 following a raft of soft trade data from the Asian region. 

      When it comes to other precious metals, silver was down 0.5 percent, platinum was flat while palladium gained 0.08 per cent. The metals were trading at 15.36, 791.50, and 1,264.99 dollars respectively.
