Can we get loan against SGB or Sovereign Gold Bond?

Yes, you can use Sovereign Gold Bonds (SGBs) as collateral for loans from banks, financial institutions, and non-banking financial companies (NBFCs). 

For example, State Bank of India (SBI) offers a loan against SGBs that can be used for many purposes, including:
  • Medical expenses
  • Margin money for home loans, car loans, education loans, or travel plans 

The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio for SBI’s SGB loan is set equal to the ordinary gold loan mandated by the Reserve Bank. SBI charges a processing fee of 0.50% of the loan amount plus applicable service tax or Rs 500 plus applicable tax, whichever is higher. 

Indian Bank also offers loans against SGBs. Customers can only approach for loans against SGBs through the branch through which the SGB was obtained. 

Once the loan is closed, the bonds are transferred to your demat account according to your instructions.
