The Sovereign Gold Bond was introduced by the Government of India in 2015 under the Gold Monetisation Scheme. In this scheme, the issues are made open by the government under consultation with RBI for subscription in tranches. RBI also notifies the terms and conditions of the program. SGB rates will be declared by RBI by issuing a press release before issuance of each new tranche. It is the safest way to buy and store gold and it doesn't need any physical lockers to store it. Investors also receive an assured 2.5% interest per annum.
Currently, 2019-20 Series IX Bonds are on offer. They are available for subscription from February 03-07, 2020. The date of issuance is February 11th, 2020. Here is a calendar of issuance for the year 2019-20.
