Source : RBI
Interest Rate:
Investors will be compensated at a fixed rate of 2.50 per cent per annum payable semi-annually on the nominal value. 


Bonds can be used as collateral for loans. The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is to be set equal to ordinary gold loan mandated by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) from time to time.

Issue price:
The bond price will be fixed in Indian rupees on the basis of the simple average of closing price of gold of 999 purity published by the India Bullion and Jewellers Association for the week (Monday to Friday) preceding the subscription period. The issue price of the gold bonds will be Rs 50 per gram less than the nominal value. 

Bonds will be restricted for sale to resident Indian entities including individuals, HUFs, trusts, universities and charitable institutions. Bonds will be denominated in multiples of grams of gold with a basic unit of 1 gram. 


The tenure of the bond will be for a period of eight years with exit option from fifth year to be exercised on the interest payment dates. 

Minimum and maximum size:
The minimum permissible investment will be 1 grams of gold.
The maximum amount subscribed by an entity will not be more than 500 grams per person per fiscal year (April-March). A self-declaration to this effect will be obtained. 

Payment option:

Payment for the bonds will be through cash payment (up to a maximum of Rs 20,000) or demand draft or cheque or electronic banking. 

Issuance form:
Gold bonds will be issued as the Government of India stocks under the GS Act, 2006. Investors will be issued a holding certificate for the same. Bonds are eligible for conversion into demat form. 

Redemption price:

The redemption price will be in Indian rupees based on previous week’s (Monday-Friday) simple average of closing price of gold of 999 purity published by IBJA. 

Sales channel:
Bonds will be sold through banks, Stock Holding Corporation of India (SHCIL), designated post offices as may be notified and recognised stock exchanges viz., National Stock Exchange of India and Bombay Stock Exchange, either directly or through agents. 

Sovereign Gold Bonds is Back.! Series-IV For Financial Year : 2016-17

Gold is likely to glitter again for retail investors this March.
Sovereign Gold Bonds Series-IV For Financial Year : 2016-17
The Government of India (GoI), in consultation with the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), has decided to issue sovereign gold bonds Series-IV for 2016-17. 

Applications for the bond issue will be accepted from Monday, February 27, till Friday, March 03, 2017.

The bonds will be issued on March 17, 2017. 

The gold monetisation scheme launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi way back in November 2015 was aimed to lure tonnes of the precious metal from Indian households into the banking system. 

The scheme is aimed at unlocking 20,000 tonnes of the precious metal lying idle in households and temples, whose worth is estimated at around $800 billion. 

These bonds will carry sovereign guarantee, both on the capital invested and the interest and can be used as collateral for loans.

The sovereign gold bonds will be sold through banks, Stock Holding Corporation of India (SHCIL), designated post offices and the National Stock Exchange of India and the Bombay Stock Exchange, which would allow early exit. 

The issue price of the gold bonds will be Rs 50 per gram less than the nominal value. Global gold prices started 2017 on a positive note with prices rising around 5 per cent since the start of the year on concerns over President Donald Trump’s protectionist policies, rising global uncertainty and US Fed rate hike. 

“Sovereign gold bonds offer a good alternative to take exposure to gold as it offers additional interest. There are no annual recurring expenses compared with gold ETFs (expense ratio in ETF is 1%) and no storage hassles like those involved in physical gold holding,” ICICI Securities said in a note. 

What makes it attractive from a taxation point of view is the fact that in the Union Budget 2016-17, any capital gains arising out of redemption of sovereign gold bonds is tax exempt. 

“If these bonds are sold in the secondary market before maturity, capital gains arising out of such transactions will be taxed at 20% with indexation, if sold on or after three years, or would be subject to marginal tax rate if sold before three years,” said the ICICI Securities note.
