Dont worry govt will never go bankrupt, have some faith on them.

Agar govt bankrupt hua to aapka sona bhi koi chhin kar le jayega.

That is a scenario you as an Individual should not hedge against / consider. If the govt goes bankrupt you are ****-ed either way.

Dont invest in gold bonds
Real gold is far more valuable than paper or digital gold
You will be trading your real gold for fake fiat money for petty interest
And in most probability at the end of the tenure when you get cash money in hand you wont end up buying real gold of that
Hence government would have successfully converted your real physical gold into fake fiat money

No one buy SGB with Gold. They buy with Cash. SGB is just a Treasury bond linked to Gold prices. While ETF has Gold as the underlying, SGB does not even have any Gold underlying.

I know etf is said to have gold underlying
However, these days trust no one.
No regulatory body is going to check if they actually have the physical gold that they are showing on paper
