Kolhapur

According to legend, a demon called Kolhasura’s dying wish was to have a place named after him before he was killed by goddess Ambabai. And hence, the birth of Kohlapur. The daughter of Chhatrapati Shivaji, Tarabai Bhonsale established it as a princely state in 1707. The city of Kohlapur in Maharashtra was reigned by Shilaharas, the Cholas, the Chalukyas, and the Marathas at various points in history. The famous Kohlapuri Chappals made locally with leather, originate here. Manufacturing industries, tourism and film industry constitute the biggest chunk of the economy. Buying gold is like a hobby for the locals they prefer to stash up on ornaments at the right time for weddings. Gold rate in Kohlapur fluctuates according to this demand and supply factor. The tourist attractions here are mostly temples and they are Shri Mahalakshmi Temple, Temblabai Temple, Bhavani Mandap, New Palace Museum, Rankala Lake, Shalini Palace, and Jyotiba Temple.

How is gold rate determined?

Gold rates in India are determined by an array of factors. It could be the supply of gold in comparison to its demand both locally as well as globally, inflationary rates, the gold reserves present in the possession of the government, ongoing import and interest rates, taxes and levies. These are only some of the several micro and macroeconomic factors that could affect gold rates.

As a rational borrower with a personal stake, you need to be aware of the gold rate in cityname. There is almost always a variation between the gold price in the market as compared to the valuation that the lender offers. This is because lenders follow a unique way of evaluating gold. They arrive at the price by taking the average of 22 Karat gold from the past thirty days. Hence, your gold valuationdepends on this average price as well as the lender's loan-value ratio. Recently, the RBI has ruled that lenders can disburse loans of up to 90% of gold's market value until March 31, 2021.

Effect of GST on Gold Prices.

GST or Goods and Services Tax came into effect on 1st July 2017 by subsuming the repetitive tax structure of the previous regime and bringing transparency and accountability in the taxation system.

The implementation of this new tax regime has left a considerable effect on the prices of several commodities, of which gold accrues enormous importance due to its national and international demand.

Under the new tax regime, the GST on gold was fixed at 3% with an additional 8% tax on the making charges and import duty of 10%. Later, the making charges tax was revised and reduced to 5%. As a whole, the yellow metal has become expensive by 0.75% in the post-GST era.

A primary reason that accounts for the rising gold price is 10% import duty. However, traders have managed to evade that by importing gold from countries like South Korea, with which India shares the Free Trade Agreement. 

Why is Gold considered a Precious Metal?

Gold derives this value from several factors, some of which are listed below:

  • Rarity

Gold, in its elemental form, is a relatively hefty atom. Although it is not the rarest of metals, it isn’t easy to find and extract gold in large quantities. This contributes to its high perceived value.

  • Demand-Supply Disparity

Gold is a highly coveted metal in a county like India. So, it generally enjoys a high demand all year round, but its supply falls short to meet that. As a result, gold prices tend to increase with time.

  • Liquidity

One of gold’s many attractive aspects is its liquidity. Gold has an active, reliable and a ready market of buyers at almost all times. As a result, it can be readily converted to cash, which makes it a highly liquid asset.

  • Standard of Exchange

It is universally accepted as a commodity of value, especially under a free market system. Gold reserves ensure the strength and stability of the currency and eliminate the pitfalls of fiat money.
