New Delhi [India], Aug 31 (ANI/NewsVoir): Kundan Care Products Ltd, one of the India's largest gold refineries, today announced its selection as a bullion gold bar provider for settlement of the future gold contracts traded on the NSE's (National Stock Exchange) platform called "NSE Refiner Standards for Bureau of Indian Standard (BIS) - Standard Gold".
The firm has been selected by the newly crafted India Good Delivery Standards, which aims at making Indian gold standard equivalent to an international gold standard.
"It gives me immense pleasure to be associated with India's leading stock exchange platform and be a helping hand in boosting the country's economy," said Vidit Garg, Director, Kundan Group.
According to Garg, this initiative taken by NSE is an important milestone not only for the refiners but also for the entire network that operates in the Indian bullion and jewelry segment.
It is for the very first time that the Indian gold refiners will be able to trade their gold over the NSE platforms. This initiative has come in line with the government's efforts towards a transition to "Atma Nirbahr Bharat", thereby promoting the 'Make in India' campaign.
Earlier, NSE used to accept only serial-numbered gold bars developed and authorized by the London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) for the settlement of gold contracts exchanged on the commodity derivatives section of the exchange. According to NSE, the launch of NRS for BIS - Standard Gold - would encourage greater involvement by domestic market players in the trading of marketable bullion product as its futures the expanding reach of suitable bullion products for distribution on the platform.
