Gold is considered as a safe investment avenue especially in a country like India. Historically, it has always outperformed many other asset classes. Investment in sovereign gold bonds help you earn returns linked to the price of gold.

Amidst the uncertainty caused by COVID-19, the Reserve Bank of India has come up with the first of six tranches of the sovereign gold bonds. The subscription of gold bonds starts from 20th April and ends on 24th April.
