Electronic Gold Receipt

Electronic Gold Receipt (EGR) is a new instrument proposed by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) that reflects the underlying physical gold. According to this proposal, participants can convert their physical gold into EGR, which can be bought or sold on the exchange similar to that of equity trading. These instruments can be converted back into physical gold. The objective here is to make India a price setter instead of price taker.
