The country's gold mortgage market is experiencing excitement as prices have reached new highs in line with the global market. Banks and financial institutions are gearing up for better growth by allowing additional funds on top of existing gold mortgage loans. As part of this, they have started sending messages to customers with offers to renew their existing loans and obtain additional amounts. Efforts to acquire gold mortgage loans with additional benefits are also active, and the price of gold in the state reached a record high of Rs 54,720 on Saturday.

Consumers are ramping up loan renewals to take advantage of the significant jump in gold prices over the past two months, financial insiders say. At the current price, if a gold mortgage loan is renewed, the customer can earn an additional four thousand rupees. Taking advantage of this opportunity, banks are trying to make additional gains in the gold mortgage market, which is dominated by non-banking financial institutions (NBFCs). As the Reserve Bank has imposed strict restrictions and additional liabilities on the disbursement of unsecured loans, banks are planning to pay more attention to the gold mortgage sector.
