Gold also doubles up as investment portfolios for a large number of Indians. This is because gold has a reputation of offering stable and assured returns to consumers in both the short and long terms. This has instigated consumer to opt for gold instead of savings accounts or even equity markets, as the volatility of the equity markets is looked upon with caution by consumers in Mumbai. Major avenues of investment in gold in the city include:
Jewelry: As with most of the country, consumers in Mumbai are also obsessed with gold jewelry and ornaments. Gold jewelries form an integral part of the Indian society and are used in festivals, occasions such as marriages and also as a savings investments.
Coins: Gold coins are primarily available from various banks in and around the city. The rate of gold coins in the city is slightly above the gold traded rates. Gold coins are available in different purities. Several private dealers also provide marked gold coins.
Bullions: Gold bullions are available from several dealers in Mumbai. While buying pure gold in the form of bars or ingots, it is advisable to go for the largest or well-established dealers only as these are typically very pricey buys and some sort of guarantee on the product becomes a necessity.
Like every other city and state in the world, gold prices in Mumbai change due to a number of factors, all of which contribute to either bring the rates up and down. Here are some of the key aspects that determine prices of gold in Mumbai:
- Rates set by the Indian Bullion Jewellers Association (IBJA):
IBJA, as the name suggests, is the association of all the gold jewellers in and around the country. This organisation is the one responsible to set gold rates in each city. When setting the rates, the company takes into account the following information:
- The rates set by some of the largest gold dealers in a particular city.
- Import duty, which is often different to each city.
- Rates in the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX) index. MCX is basically a exchange facility where goods and precious metals are bought and sold. Gold price changes are primarily decided based on the performance of this market.
As per the data made available by the Bureau of International Standards (BIS), there are over 63 hallmarking centres in Maharashtra. Hallmarking centres are basically certified organisations which test metals for authenticity against various standardised variables. In Mumbai, there are centres like Leo Analytics Lab (Borivali), Variety Hallmarking (Mahakali Caves), and Varsha Bullion Hallmarking Centre (Mumbadevi), etc. However, the government is not satisfied with the number of centres in the city and is considering opening several more so as to maintain the exact standards of gold available for purchase.
The issue of storage, especially when considering precious metals like gold is a long-drawn one. However, if you are looking for the right place to store gold, you can look into any of the lockers provided by a bank near you. Banks usually offer storage space for a surcharge and will also allow you withdraw them whenever you like. If you have gold in large quantity, it is advisable to store them in a locker. However, if you have a small quantity of the metal, it is rather better if you store them in a locker in your house. This would help you save on storage charges you’d otherwise pay the bank. Doing so will also save you the round trip you will have to take to the bank in order to use the gold for any festive occasion. Gold storage rentals in Mumbai typically start from Rs.5,000 per year for a small space. So, its better for you to take a call whether and not you will need a storage depending on the amount of gold you own.
People who tend to buy and sell precious metal like gold are required to pay a capital gains tax, which is based on the overall profit they make. If you are making a profit on your gold within 36 months of acquiring it, you are required to pay taxes based on the tax slab you fall under. On the other hand, if your profit comes after 36 months, you will have to pay a tax of 20%.
The increase and decrease of gold prices in Mumbai hinges mainly on the performance of the international market. For instance, if the price of gold falls internationally, prices in Mumbai will also fall and if the prices increase globally, the same in the city will rise.
However, the rise or fall is dependent on a number of factors such as the bond yields, the US Federal Reserve interest rate. Currently, going by the trends as seen over the first quarter of 2017, gold prices are likely to fall, barring any major international event.
All in all, investing in gold isn’t all that simple if you are looking to get some hefty returns on your investment. So, we would advise you to learn more about the factors that impact gold prices more carefully or get in touch with a seasoned trader to understand the nitty-gritties of investing in bullion-related things.
