Hi Varun,

India is on 11th in terms of Gold Reserve.

Varun Reddy said...


->One thing jayant, irrelevant to the question asked by you..banks follow the government data.
->Banks does not follow private organization.

Now coming to your question you have a doubt that India is 11th place in gold reserves...but i have given 10th place in the quiz? a/c to the Wiki. It is correct data that india holds 11th place in gold reserves in he world.

A/c to the 13th finance commission report, India is 10th largest holding NATION in gold reserves.

Both are correct...

what happened is 13th finance commission report did not include the IMF as it is not a COUNTRY, it is a organization, whereas Wikipedia combined the country's and organizations to list the Largest gold its shows india as 11th place.

You have to understand the question.!!!
