Mr. Rajesh Rokde stated, “Akshaya Tritiya is considered to be one of the three best occasions to purchase gold. We have learnt from our forefathers to build gold inventory as and when one has surplus money. However, occasions like Akshaya Tritiya bring in an opportunity to purchase gold if not bought earlier. The systematic investment plan (SIP) in gold has been introduced in the most recent past. But, we must buy gold as and when we find an opportunity to build gold inventory in proportion to our wealth. We recommend consumers to buy gold jewellery for duel purposes – wearing and investment. Consumers’ confidence gets multiplied when they see a 25% increase in gold prices from the last Akshaya Tritiya to today. Tempted by the sharp increase, consumers have been seen diverting funds from other investment avenues to gold.”
