  • The assessment of rate per gram of gold is based on the average of the rates quoted by Indian Bullion and Jewellers Association for the last 30 days. The components that decide the quantum of the loan are the rate per gram, the weight of the gold and the purity of the gold. The rate per gram is generally quoted for gold of 24-carat purity. If the purity is lesser the rate will be calculated proportionately.
