Gold Loan Tips For Students & Professionals

Gold has long been considered a trusted commodity in Indian households. One of the most rewarding advantages of investing in gold is that it does not depreciate like paper money. Even when the market crashes, the value of gold rarely falls significantly. Therefore, you can acquire a gold loan for any profession and purpose, including education.

This article discusses some gold loan tips for students and professionals.

Gold Loan Tips For Students And Professionals

Many students and professionals pledge gold, such as jewellery, ornaments as collateral for their loans. Gold acts as security for lenders against possible loan defaults by borrowers. Lenders estimate the value of the pledged gold and provide the amount equivalent to the maximum gold loan-to-value ratio.

Here are some gold financing advice and tips for students planning higher education or professionals looking to expand their businesses.

1. Lender Comparison

Multiple lenders in India offer gold loans, including local jewellers. However, this is not secure. Before committing their valuable assets, borrowers should compare lenders based on terms, such as loan amount, interest rate, and repayment options. NBFCs registered with the Reserve Bank of India are authorized to provide reasonable gold loan interest rate.

2. Gold Purity Check

Gold has a maximum purity of 24 carats but can sometimes go as low as 4. Most lenders will not accept less than 18k of gold as collateral. Therefore, borrowers should ensure their gold asset purity is between 18 and 24 carats before pledging their assets for a gold loan. Computerized laboratories can test gold, verify its purity, and issue certificates.
