Mobile apps are one of the most recent and easiest mediums to add gold to your investment portfolio. With prices on the rise amid concerns of economic slowdown, the yellow metal has caught attention among investors once again.

Earlier this year, tech giant Google, launched a service over its UPI app-Google Pay (earlier known as Tez) to purchase 99.99 percent pure 24k gold digitally for an amount as little as one rupee through MMTC-PAMP.

Through Google Pay app, you can buy or sell gold from and to MMTC-PAMP. MMTC-PAMP India Pvt Ltd is a joint venture between PAMP SA, an independently operated Swiss precious metals refining company and MMTC Ltd, a Government of India undertaking and India's largest bullion trader.

A Gold Accumulation Plan (GAP) will be maintained by MMTC that will store the metal on your behalf in physical form as a custodian, as long as you do not make a sale.

Purchases made through MMTC-PAMP are insured to ensure that your gold is safely stored.
