75 tonnes more gold in forex kitty adds to stability

Data from the Reserve Bank shows that the central bank held 743.84 metric tonnes of gold as of September 2021, more than 11 per cent compared to 668.25 tonnes of the yellow metal held in September 20220

India is adding more gold to its rising foreign exchange kitty of $640 billion. The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has acquired 75.59 tonnes of gold in the last 12 months, boosting the gold reserves of the country significantly.

Data from the Reserve Bank shows that the central bank held 743.84 metric tonnes of gold as of September 2021, more than 11 per cent compared to 668.25 tonnes of the yellow metal held in September 2020.

The value of the gold holdings, however, rose by just $960 million (around Rs 7,150 crore) to $37.389 billion in September this year from $36.42 a year ago. The valuation declined as gold prices which soared to Rs 56,000 per 10 grams last year had later fallen below the Rs 48,000 mark.

The RBI's gold holding has gone up by 125.6 tonnes in the last two years, making India the word's ninth-largest holder of gold reserves.

While 451.54 metric tonnes of gold is held overseas in safe custody with the Bank of England and the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), 292.30 tonnes of gold is held domestically, says the RBI's Report on Management of Foreign Exchange Reserves. In value terms (USD), the share of gold in the total foreign exchange reserves increased marginally from about 5.87 per cent as at end-March 2021 to about 5.88 per cent as at end-September 2021.

Although gold no longer plays a direct role in the international monetary system, central banks and governments still hold extensive gold reserves to preserve national wealth and protect against economic instability. Central banks are buying gold at an ever-increasing pace. In 2018 alone, they purchased more gold than at any time since the end of the gold standard – and they have been net buyers for 11 straight years. “Today, gold is the third largest reserve asset globally, following US dollarand euro-denominated assets. Moreover, gold is increasingly used as collateral in nancial transactions, much like other high-quality, liquid assets such as government debt,” says the World Gold Council.

Bank of England continues to be the most popular storage location, with 63 per cent of respondents vaulting there, says a WGC survey. This marks a signicant increase from last year and may indicate growing importance attached to keeping gold in liquid trading centres. Domestic storage has also grown to 39 per cent of respondents, also higher than previous years. However, the changes in custody arrangements at the individual level reect less movement: 2 per cent of respondents increased domestic gold storage compared to 5 per cent in 2020. Furthermore, 0 per cent of respondents intend to increase domestic storage in the coming 12 months compared to 7 per cent in 2020, the survey said.

According to the 2021 Central Bank Gold Reserves (CBGR) survey, 21 per cent of central banks intend to increase their gold reserves over the next 12 months. Central banks are also increasingly valuing gold's performance during periods of crisis as this attribute now tops their rationale for holding gold.

The RBI says the major sources of market risk for central banks are currency risk, interest rate risk and movement in gold prices. Gains/losses on valuation of FCA and gold due to movements in the exchange rates and/or price of gold are booked under a balance sheet head named the Currency and Gold Revaluation Account (CGRA). The balances in CGRA provide a buffer against exchange rate/gold price uctuations. “The dated foreign securities are valued at market prices as on the last business day of each week and month and the appreciation/depreciation arising therefrom is transferred to the Investment Revaluation Account (IRA). The balance in IRA is meant to provide cushion against changes in the security prices over the holding period,” it said.
