How much gold should I keep?

Actually, understanding the importance of keeping gold, some rules have been made. Under these rules, gold can be kept up to a limit-

The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT) had issued instructions in 1994 to keep gold at home. According to these instructions-

A married woman can have up to 500 grams of gold.

An unmarried woman can have up to 250 grams of gold.

A married or unmarried man can have up to 100 grams of gold.

When can trouble arise?

Here you need to understand that this rule of the Central Board of Direct Taxes does not give any legal right to keep gold.
