Hi vishal412,

Isn't e-gold illegal in India?

Hi Ravi
E gold has been launched by National Spot Exchange Limited , which comes under SEBI, so i don't think it it illegal to invest in E GOld. But even if you had some piece of information on this, share with all investors here, it will be really very helpful to read such information.
Hi Vishal412,

Cheap on storage costs and transaction costs, finally physical gold is a good investment option. 1.5% was the return in rotating physical gold after all the charges. This way it could have been 50% at-least.
Well that's really good news then. E-Gold sounds great! :thumb:
Thanks for the info Vishal412 :clapping:

Ravi Chandra.
The e-gold that was deemed illegal by the RBI is an electronic currency that was introduced in 2006. It has been suspended since 2007. The e-gold launched by NSEL is a completely different product.

Could somebody give a comprehensive review on how E Gold compares to Gold ETF?

For example, I am not interested in physical delivery and that is the only difference I could find. On the down side, it seems cumbersome to open a separate demat and a commodity trading account for buying E series products.

How reliable is this National spot exchange and why can't they simply list their E Gold on NSE?

e-gold is a fund in which each unit will cost equal to 1 gm of gold.

Gold ETF is fund of funds whose face value will be Rs.10/- each. These Gold ETF's will invest in funds which will invest in gold. So, in this, administrative charges of the ETF and funds in which they had invested had to be borne by the investor.
