Tanishq Golden Harvest Savings Scheme-Review

Today I came across one gold investment plan from one of the famous jewellery shop called Tanishq. Let us look at it’s features and analyze whether it is worth to invest for or not.Features of this gold plan are like this-

Minimum Monthly Contribution-Rs.500 and above that in multiples of Rs.500.Currently they have two plans. One is of 12 months plan and another is for 18 months plan. This how the features are showcasing on their site.

THE 11+1 PLAN

Under this scheme, you need to invest a fixed amount every month with Tanishq for 11 months. The 12th month installment is paid by Tanishq, hence you can buy for more than what you pay.

Scheme Type11+1
You Pay3000
No of months11
Total Paid11 X 3000 = 33000
Bonus3000
Total Amount36000
Time periodafter 12 months
AdvantageBonus – 100% of monthly instalment

THE 18 MONTHS PLAN

In the 18 months plan, you have to invest for 18 months – but the amount here can be flexible – meaning, you can choose how much you want to invest each month. For example – you can start with enrolling for 2,000/-, increase it to 5,000/- the next month and even reduce it to Rs.500 the month after that. The flexibility and time period of this scheme make it truly unique!

Scheme Type18 month
You Pay3000
No of months18
Total Paid18 X 3000 = 54000
Bonus3900
Total Amount57900
Time periodafter 18 months
AdvantageFlexible deposits every month.

Now let us look at investment perspective whether this plan is really a good one to invest? We will consider both 12 month plans and 18 months plan for calculation. For return calculation we need to calculate IRR (Internal Rate of Return-For detailed description about IRR visit my previous post “How to calculate returns on your investments?“). After calculating IRR returns on both the above examples it is around 1.44% IRR. It looks attractive to invest. But the catch of the scheme is you are unable to buy pure gold or can’t get cash back, you have to purchase only jewellery items where again your money value will loose in the way of making charges and wastage. Hence this is good plan if you want to accumulate gold jewelerry for your personal use. But bad if you think that you are investing in gold. So this plan is not good for the persons who are looking for pure gold investment rather than jewellary purchasing.

  1. Kindly don’t choose Tanishq golden harvest scheme. The entire Tanishq is fraudulent. They having swarnanidhi scheme, like every jewellery shop scheme. But, they never told this scheme. I was paid last 10 month 1,50,000( In valasaravakkam – Chennai branch).Using swarnanidhi scheme today I can purchase 47 grams. But, because of the fraudulent they said only 38 grams. Totally disappointed bcoz of this shop

  2. I also applied for Tanshiq Gold Harvest .After maturing the amount of 4000/- per month. I asked to refund my amount.Thus calculating the profit they promised to credit 43000/-.but I was credit with only 40000.and last moment I got message that only by shopping I can use my profit 3000/-.My point is why Tanshiq lied us earlier to credit whole 43000/.

    • Dear Kshitij,
      If they promised you in writing, then think of legal action.

  3. This info is either inaccurate or obsolete. Recently have paid 15000 for 10 M and after 12 months got 164000 against my 150000 paid @7‰

    What they gave me is 2500 discount on making charge of 27000. Pl note other than a simple 7% interest you wont get much on this. Instead ofvwasting payments yet another institute make RDcand go to your choice at 12 months than locked to unreasonable terms of TanishQ. Last point, on average you pay 1100 per gram making charge.. So buying gold at 125 % on top GST.

    Before closing, all glitters are not gold

    • Dear Srini,
      This post is written based on that day’s information. Now coming back to return of 7%, is it a great deal? Think and decide 🙂
