Gold Monetization Scheme

The Gold Monetization Scheme was launched on 5th November by the Prime Minister Narenda Modi. The scheme is designed to help you earn interest on your unused gold lying idle in bank lockers. The Gold Monetization Scheme is basically a new deposit tool to ensure mobilization of gold possessed by various families and institutions in India. It is expected that the scheme would turn gold into a productive asset in India. This new gold scheme is a modification of the existing Gold Deposit Scheme (GDS) and Gold Metal Loan Scheme (GML), and it would replace the existing Gold Deposit Scheme, 1999.

An investor can deposit gold for short, medium and long terms under the Gold Monetization Scheme. The scheme would allow an investor to deposit gold in Short Term Bank Deposits (SRBD) and Medium and Long Term Government Deposit (MLTGD). The tenure of a Short Term Bank Deposit is 1-3 years. The Medium and Long Term Government Deposits can be opened for 5 -7 years and 12-15 years respectively. The Short Term Bank Deposit would be accepted by individual banks on their own account. But the Medium and Long Term Government Deposits would be accepted by banks on behalf of the Government of India based upon notification issued by the Reserve Bank of India.
