SGBs come with a tenure of eight years with an exit option after the fifth year. SGBs are tax free if held till maturity.

SGBs also offer an annual interest of 2.50 per cent, credited semi-annually to the buyer’s bank account, with the final interest payment made at maturity along with the principal amount. Upon maturity, buyers will receive the value of gold at current market prices, and the interest income, all of which is tax-free.
