Gold has always been a friend in need in India. During times of financial strain or a cash crunch, both gold and yellow metal loans are helpful. Banks keep gold jewelry or other gold goods as collateral when someone asks for a gold loan. People can obtain funding through gold loans without having to sell their gold.
