Solution

RBI withdrew the gold import restrictions popularly known as the “80:20” scheme in November 2014. Introduced in August 2013 the rule enjoined all gold importers to supply at least 20 per cent of the quantity brought in to jewellery exporters. Permission for subsequent import would be given only on fulfilment of this export obligation.
