How should you invest in

Sovereign bonds (SGBs) are not very liquid. You can sell them back to the issuer after five years. ETFs have better liquidity. On physical gold, you have to pay 3 per cent GST. Buy according to need: SGB for long term, ETF if you need liquidity, and bars if you need to accumulate for daughter's marriage.
