Government of India has identified Bureau of Indian Standard as the sole agency in India to operate the BIS Hallmarking Scheme. The BIS Hallmarking Scheme has been aligned with International criteria on hallmarking (Vienna Convention 1972). A Hallmark, consists of five components i.e. BIS Mark, the Fineness number (corresponding to given carratage), Assaying and Hallmarking Centre's Mark, Jeweller's identification Mark and year of Marking denoted by a code letter and decided by BIS (e.g. code letter `A' was approved by BIS for year 2000, `B' being used for the year 2001 and `C' for 2002 and 'J' for 2008). The marking is done either using punches or laser marking machine.
There is no benchmark for comparing the price of Goldsikka. MCX cannot be considered as a benchmark, since there are many differences between Goldsikka and MCX. MCX gives the prices of a futures contract which doesn’t give the landed prices by factoring in cost of logistics, insurance, safekeeping, etc. MCX doesn’t give PAN India Delivery and based on the contract it gives delivery at only a few locations like Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Delhi, etc. Goldsikka gives delivery PAN India, includes the cost of storage, insurance, trustee fees and gives the landed price of Gold. Also the gold price quoted in newspapers and on various websites is the wholesale price in multiples of 1kg of gold. Goldsikka price is valid for fractional grams and therefore is not directly comparable.
The customer will need to arrange for an identity proof to be available at the registered address at the time of taking delivery.
No, only the applicant can collect the gold. In case of applicant death the person nominee in the application form can collect the gold by showing the proof identity along with the original notarized copy of the death certificate. In case of nominee death the legal heir can collect gold by providing necessary documents.
