Leading stock exchange BSE on Tuesday said it has completed physical deliveries of gold under the India Good Delivery standard in the 'options in good' contracts.
The exchange executed delivery of gold to the tune of ₹1.5 crore in the 'options in goods' framework, marking the fifth consecutive month of deliveries at it's designated vault in Ahmedabad, Gujarat, BSE said in a statement.
"The deliveries and acceptance of Indian refined gold shows the trust reposed by buyers and sellers alike on BSE led initiatives.
