Why was it launched 

The Sovereign Gold Bond scheme was launched by the RBI in 2015. The objective of this scheme was to encourage people not to invest in gold as money invested in gold is considered as unproductive investment.

Instead people were encouraged to buy sovereign gold bonds. 

The repayment on the bond was guaranteed by the Government of India and people would also be able to earn extra interest on it. 

The money collected in this way will be used by the government for investment in those areas of the economy, which will lead to economic development of the country.

  •  The sovereign gold bonds mature in eight years, with an option of premature redemption after the fifth year.
  • After 8 years RBI redeems the gold bond in Indian rupees at the average price of gold prevalent at that time. 
  •  Investors are paid a fixed rate of interest of 2.5% per annum payable semi-annually on the issue price of the bond.
