The bonds, which are issued by RBI on behalf of the Government of India, can be used as collateral for loans. The SGB scheme was introduced in November 2015, with the objective being to reduce the demand for physical gold and shift a part of the domestic savings – used for purchasing gold – into financial savings.

Here is all you need to know about SGB Scheme 2023-24 – Series IV:

(1.) The issue price has been fixed at 6263 per gram of gold, as per RBI.

(2.) A discount of 50 per gram less than the nominal value will be offered to investors who apply online and make the payment ( 6213) digitally.

(3.) These will be sold through commercial banks (except small finance banks, payment banks and regional rural banks), Stock Holding Corporation of India Limited (SHCIL), Clearing Corporation of India Limited (CCIL), designated post offices, National Stock Exchange of India Limited (NSEL) and Bombay Stock Exchange Limited (BSEL).

(4.) The maximum subscription limit (per fiscal year) is 4 kg for individuals, 4 kg for Hindu Undivided Family (HUF), and 20 kg for trusts and small entities.

(5.) The SGB’s tenor will be eight years with an option of premature redemption after fifth year to be exercised on the date on which interest is payable. Also, the Know Your Customer (KYC) norms will be the same as that for buying physical gold.
