New Delhi: Gold in India is not a metal but it is more than that. It not only holds ornamental value, but also is the first choice for investment and savings for many people. Beyond buying the gold for investment or savings, people often opt for gold loans, which are a type of loan that is rapidly gaining popularity.

In a country like India that likes to hoard gold, a gold loan is so easy to obtain that anyone with unused gold in the form of jewelry can pawn it to receive financial assistance. This type of loan can be a preferred choice because people can easily obtain cash without having to sell their long-term investments.
