      Please don’t make this mistake.
      NSEL is a platform where you can purchase Gold / Silver and other base metals in demat mode.This is a spot market.
      There is a price based risk.
      Yes…but this is great alternative for Physical Gold / Silver considering the storage can think to invest your partial money say 10%-20% in NSEL account and buy with any deeps.
      For remaining money , think to invest in Fixed deposits of SBI only….as you are retired from SBI and should eligible for 1% more interest rate than other senior citizens.

      Thank you.
