    The same 18.75 if had invested with a mere return of 10% annually would have yield Rs.68,041.23624 and a good investment of 15% returns annually would yield Rs.31,11,827.701.
    So, gold is not a good idea when it comes to investment. But it is good idea for emergency money(like insurance) as it a very good liquid asset.

  2. SST says:

    returns from Gold needs to be compared against returns from FDs. I don’t think that the picture will be great. based on the above Gold prices, returns are approximately 9% which is at par with existing interest rates on FDs. I feel that there were years when interest on FDs were in double digit. So, investment in gold may disappoint you unless you invested some 5-10 years back.

    Very useful information is provided. People apprears are crazy to hold the metal and a right time to curb the possession. Prescribing a limit to hold jewellery and banning the primary gold without a declartion may solve the problem of inflation in price and such an imposition may also curb black money investment and curb corruption and crimes.
