Check the purity of gold sitting at home
Akshaya Tritiya 2022: If you doubt your gold and want to check its purity, then you can check the purity of your gold sitting at home through BIS Care App.
nationwide on Tuesday, May 3 Third day of Akshaya (Akshaya Tritiya) will be celebrated. Buying gold, silver or diamonds on Akshaya Tritiya is considered very auspicious. However, most people prefer to buy gold on this auspicious occasion. To woo the customers on the day of Akshaya Tritiya, not only big stores but also small traders give tremendous offers on the purchase of gold and silver. This is the reason that people who do not buy gold and silver on Akshaya Tritiya, they get attracted by these offers and do shopping. If you are also going to buy gold on the occasion of Akshaya Tritiya or have recently bought gold, then you can check its purity through a mobile app sitting at home.

In our country, shopping for gold and silver starts a few days before Akshaya Tritiya. But it is also very important to find out the purity of gold in this shopping season. Actually, there is a huge crowd at the shops on the occasion of Akshaya Tritiya. In such a situation, people do not have enough time to investigate it and fraudulent shopkeepers take advantage of such opportunities and sell adulterated or fake gold to the customers. In such a situation, if you have doubts about your gold and want to check its purity, then you can check the purity of your gold through BIS Care App.
HUID code will tell how pure gold is
Before checking the purity of gold, it is very important for you to know that the Government of India had amended the rules of Hallmark on Jewelery, which was implemented from 1st July 2021 across the country. Under the new rule, a jewelery will have a total of 3 marks of hallmarking, which used to be 4 to 5 earlier. The 3 marks include BIS hallmark, purity grade and a 6 digit alphanumeric code. This 6-digit alphanumeric code is called HUID, which includes alphabets as well as digits. According to the new rules, every gold jewelery made in the country is given a unique HUID code, which helps in checking the purity of your jewellery.
