BIS started the facility to conduct investigation

BIS has made a provision to allow an ordinary customer to get his/her unhallmarked gold jewelery tested for purity at a BIS accredited Assay and Hallmark Center (AHC). AHC will test the gold jewelery from general consumers on priority basis and provide purity report to the consumer. The test report issued to the consumer will assure the consumer about the purity of his jewelery and will also be useful if the consumer wants to sell the jewelery lying with him.

How much will have to be paid for the investigation

The test fee for 4 gold ornaments is Rs 200. The testing fee for 5 or more gold ornaments has been kept at Rs 45 per piece of gold. Consumers can access the detailed guidelines on testing of gold jewelery and the list of recognized assaying and hallmarking centers through the home page of the BIS website. The authenticity and purity of hallmarked gold jewelery having HUID number purchased by the consumer can also be verified by using ‘Verify HUID’ in BIS CARE app, which can be downloaded from Play Store.
