This refers to the report “Central Bank likely to impose curbs on gold coin sale” (June 27). The Reserve Bank of India should take serious steps to curtail gold coin sales by not only banks, but other channels also like MMTC, post offices and so on. By doing this, the government will achieve two targets: one, it will be able to gradually wean investors away from such non-productive assets; and, two, it will save considerable amount of foreign exchange that is spent on gold imports.
