Kerala has always had a fascination for gold and gold jewellery. In fact, Malayalees, who traveled in large numbers in the 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and 2000s to the Gulf always came back with gold.

However, these days the restrictions on gold imports is more relaxed, so you can come back with decent amounts of gold for use, as well as for investments.

Where to buy gold in Kerala?

Kerala has a number of jewellery shops spread across the length and breadth of the state. Every top city including Cochin, Thiruvanthapuram, Calicut have plenty of jewellery shops. Apart from this even the smaller towns have a number of jewellery shops.

Among the more popular shops include Malabar Gold, Joy Alukkas, Jos Alukkas etc. In fact, there are plenty of choices that buyers of gold in Kerala have. You need to visit some of the frontline shops in the top cities and can also engage in window shopping just to make enquiries, if you so wish.

What to check while buying gold in Kerala?

Before buying gold in Kerala, it is worth checking the price. Remember, while gold rates may more or less remain the same across the state and the cities, the making charges are really what differs So, make sure that you check the making charges before buying.

Apart from that we strongly recommend that you look for purity. Make sure that you buy only hallmarked jewellery.

What determines gold prices in Kerala?

Gold prices in Kerala largely move in tandem with the international markets. So, if international prices go up, gold rates in Kerala would go up and vice versa. Similarly, if gold rates fall in the international markets, it would drop in Kerala as well.

Having said that we must say that 2016 has been a good year for investors in Kerala, who have got decent returns. In fact, their returns maybe close to 20 per cent this year, since the start of the year.

Gold is a good investment for those looking at more steady returns. It is also a great diversification saving instrument.

Be careful of taxation of Gold In Kerala

It is important to remember, that gold in Kerala or anywhere in the country would be taxed. If you sell gld after three years, you would be taxed at 20 per cent with indexation. What this means is that, if the idexation works out to 10 per cent over two years, your tax rate on gold would be only 10 per cent.

If you sell gold before three years, you would be taxed according to your tax slab. So, you would pay 10, 20 or 30 per cent, depending on your tax slab. Higher the tax slab, greater would be the tax rate on your gold.

Figuring the gold price trend in Kerala

Gold prices in the city of Kerala have had a phenomenal run in the last one year. This is largely riding piggy-back on international prices of gold. Will gold rates move higher in Kerala? This is always a difficult question to answer. We believe that the precious metal has already gone-up by 24 per cent this year and to keep going up defies all logic.

Hence, in the more medium term, we believe that gold prices could be going lower. If you are looking to invest, do not jump in at the current high prices. Wait for gold prices to fall before entering the same.

 Checking of gold purity in Kerala very important

If you are looking to buy gold in Kerala, one thing that you must almost always do, is check for purity. The Bureau of Indian Standards has a good presence in Kerala, incuding at Ernakulam.

You can contact the office for testing centres, to test the purity of gold. What we suggest is that you buy hallmarked gold, which will save you time and efforts to buy gold in Kerala.

There is a small triangular mark, which would signify the quality of gold. That is the BIS mark and you can see the same for quality.

A lot of individuals from Kerala also buy gold from the Gulf. However, there are restrictions on  getting gold into India. A lady traveler can only get upto Rs 1 lakh worth of gold, while a male traveller can get ony Rs 50,000 worth of gold, without paying duties.

On amounts in excess of this, you have to pay the duty that is applicable. So, you need to ensure that you do not get value of gold into India, in excess of the above mentioned limit.

Today, it is also easy to get gold of similar purity in India. Gone are the days when we really struggled for good quality gold. Not to mention the patterns, which are the finest.

 Demand for gold in Kerala

Demand for gold in Kerala is expected to rise, even as the World Gold Council has said that growth in the world has risen by 15 per cent in the second quarter of 2016, ending June 30, 2016. Investment demand has fuelled the rise, even as the world is flush with money, given the easing across the globe.

This has found its way into gold, which had led to a sharo uptick in gold prices across the globe and also gold rates in Kerala. As the world continues to see increased liquidity, expect gold demand to rise.

However, one cannot expect the gold price rally to keep continuing at some stage we should see investors book profit in the precious metal.

Hence, it would be more prudent to wait a while before venturing into gold.
