Its advisable not to invest more than 10-15% of your investment amount into Gold. If you have already invested in equities/equity mutual funds, then only we would advise you to put your money into gold.

If you have a demat/online trading account, It would be better if you can invest through Gold ETF (Exchange traded funds) rather than gold mutual funds.

All of the ETFs and Gold mutual fund buy gold on your behalf and hardly there is much difference among different funds offered by AMCs.

If there is a compulsion to buy gold, then you can start SIP in gold funds so that cost of buying is averaged out in these 12-15 months.

You may pick reliance as it has lower expense ratio.
