There seems to be a good demand for the current Gold Bond scheme on offer at Mylapore Post Office, as at other post offices.
The current one closes on Friday, June 24 evening and marketing executive V. Maharajan at the Post Office says that close to 450 gms worth of the bond has been sold in just two days.
A gram of gold is now quoted in the scheme at Rs.5091.
The counter for bookings at this PO is open from 10 am to 6 pm. Payment can be made by cash, cheque or bank transfer.
Maharajan says that there is a demand for this scheme because it is secure and pays back well.
