    what is security of yr plan

    • admin says:

      Hi krishnaKuamar,
      As far security is concerned…I don’t think this is ponzy scheme.Investor willing to buy gold are investing through this plan & Reliance is taking management charges for overall management of the process…overall process is being monitored by independent trustees… No returns are guaranteed in the plan…The vaults where Gold is being stored are insured..so don’t know why need of security…

    • admin says:

      Dear Mr.Reddy, Thanks for the comment.
      Output of this plan is in terms of Physical Gold only..If you are OK with this then you can subscribe for this plan..
      You are getting benefit of daily price averaging …as well no tension of safekeeping till your subscription ends…I think this is good plan for them who are looking to accumulate Gold.

    I have no idea about this scheme but iwant to invest witout any loss. I am a student. Plz suggest

    • admin says:

      Details of plan are provided above & please invest only after you understand the plan.
      The plan offers accumulation of Gold over certain period of time & delivery will be in the form of gold coin.So risk will be of up-downs in the Gold prices.
      Finally purpose of investing is quite important.If any one is looking to accumulate Gold for purpose like marriage then its good idea to look at this plan.

  5. Siddharth says:

    Hi, I am looking to book gold regularly, fr future requirement (daughters marriage), through regular small investments. My understanding is that this plan will suffice my needs. Assuming 10% increase in Gold Prices annually, Rs 3000 monthly subscription will help me get 96 Gms of gold in 20 years. Pl suggest.

    • admin says:

      Yes.You can surely think to invest through this plan as far Gold accumulation for marriage purpose is concerned.
      Keep investing regularly & try to accumulate few grams whenever there is sudden deep in prices.
      We can’t say how much gold you will accumulate within next 20 years.

    Thanks & rgds

  7. Kaushal Gandhi says:

    Dear All,

    Gold Price declared by RMPM is much higher than Gold traded in India today. Also after maturity, they will charge Gold Coin Making Charge, fund management Expenses and Sales Tax or VAT. VAT on Gold Ornament is 1% as on date. You can check Gold Coin price offered by Bank of Baroda on http://www.bankofbaroda.co.in/gold-new.asp , it is at Rs.3368/- inclusive of Coin Making charges. It is much – much cheaper than Gold rate offered by RMPM.
    Buy Gold Coin from outside Market, it will more cheaper to you but also keep in mind that this scheme is providing Daily Averaging Price Advantage which cannot be defeated by purchasing from Jewelers’ or Banks.

    • admin says:

      Hi,Thanks for your comment.

      But Actually I found Reliance My Gold Plan Prices cheaper than that of BOB or than any above mentioned bank.

      Reliance MGP is SIP route and very much different funda ,,as you have mentioned.
      Though there are coin making charges,but I don’t think they will fluctuate overall returns by big difference.

      • Kaushal Gandhi says:

        Can you elaborate that 1.5% Administrative Charges?

        Correct me if I wrong, it is on all Subsription Amount, So If I contribute 1000 p.m., they will charge 15Rs. every month on my Portfolio, so my net investment would only be Rs.985/-. This may effect the overall return for small Investor.

        • admin says:

          Of course,management charges should impact the final returns.Its inevitable to pay management charges considering Daily Averaging Facility offered by this plan.
          But all whether ETFs, Gold Funds tend to apply for management charges..just difference is that management charges for them is already added in the NAVs declared.

          Following is the comparison of Gold prices by few banks with R-MGP for DEC 06, 2012:

          Name Price
          Reliance-MGP 3292.03
          ICICI bank 3967.91
          Bank OfIndia 3316.2
          BoB 3345

          Gold prices are generally higher for bankers in the range of 0.8% – 2% means indirectly banks adding management charges in gold prices itself..as what I can understand…

  8. MegaLife Investments says:

    Dear All,
    Correct me if I am wrong, but I had observed that The Gold Price declared by reliance is Much Higher than the Gold Price in Open Market
    For Example:
    Gold price today (4/12/12) in India
    (Rs/10gm) is 31241.00
    as per http://www.marketonmobile.com/Gold-Price-India. But buying Price for Reliance MGP Customers today is 33535.
    More Price means less gold for customers. What is the reason. What is the Catch ?
    I asked reliance on their Facebook page but they simply deleted my comment.
    Is something big cooking there ?

  9. Kamal Narayan says:

    What is the making charge for the gold coins/gold jewelery? Is there an option to sell the gold back after maturity?

  10. Sunil says:

    People want to know How much gold will be alloted(approx) at the end of 60 months if pay Rs. 3000/= per month ?
