The implementation of the Goods and Services Tax in 2017 has had a large-scale impact on several goods and commodities, most noticeable of which is a change in prices. The government has levied 3% GST rate on gold jewellery; however, the goods and services tax depends on the type of gold, imports and the sector: unorganised or organised. Knowing about the impact of GST on various kinds of gold helps you make an informed decision when buying it.

When trying this adventure sport, ensure you take the necessary precautions. For instance, invest in trekking travel insurance. When you buy this policy from Bajaj Finserv, you can avail the CPP Travel Safe Trekking Travel Insurance, which will protect you in your time of need. All you have to do is make one phone call and you can get your credit card blocked if it has been misplaced, or you can get a smartphone to call your family in your time of need.
