Google Pay users can purchase gold for any value of their choice and the same will be stored in secure vaults by MMTC-PAMP on their behalf. Users will be able to buy and sell gold any time at the current price.

"Gold is core to Indian culture and tradition, making India the world's second largest consumer of gold. Keeping this in mind, we introduced gold buying and selling feature on Google Pay for millions of Indians who can buy gold right from their mobile phones," said Ambarish Kenghe, Director-Product Management, Google Pay, India.

"This feature is created for millions of Indians who buy gold especially during festivals like Akshaya Tritiya, Dhanteras or Diwali," he added.

Allegation against Google Pay

This announcement regarding the ability to buy and sell gold via Google Pay has come just a day after the Delhi High Court asked RBI how Google Pay was providing financial transactions without its authorization. The court issued a notice to both Google India and RBI seeking their stand on the same.

However, a Google spokesperson stated that their payment service complies to all the applicable legal requirements in the country. It was also stated that the company is cautious to prioritize data security and adhere to the laws.
