  2. Sir , when we ask about the gold price 3530/- less discount to the post office. They said that this price was issued by the site. .we complaint it to the particular officer. But no response.

    1. Gopika, Not sure how I can i help you. They need to provide the discounted rate which is announced by them. You do not have any choice except to contact the post officer and get the facts.

  3. Im from kerala. I purchase gold coin from post office on akshaya tritiya. . The price taken by them was 3530rs per gram .that time i didnt knew about the price. But now after searching on gold purchase i realise that the price is so much . . .Pls tell my what to do. That time gold price is around 2800

    1. Hi Gopika, Not sure how you ended up in paying high money where there was discount being offered. You can still go to PO and check about how they charged Rs 3,530 when the actual gold price was only Rs 2,850 minus 7% discount.
