Reasons Behind Why People are not Saving Money?

HSBC conducted a survey and reported that only one-third of Indians save their income regularly. Without emergency funds or savings, one could be putting themselves at financial risk. Most of them believe in the concept of saving money, but only a few manage to practice it. There may be plenty of excuses for not saving regularly like I don't know where to save, I don't know how to save, I don't have enough money to save, etc. After paying bills, renting, and making loan payments, there's often not much leftover, but by proper budgeting and planning, one can build a proper plan to save money. Some people struggle for external reasons, such as health issues, student loans, sick parents, and more prevalent causes than we think.

NSC vs PPF vs FD: Which one You Should Choose to Invest

Take Your Pick From FDs, PPF, National Saving Certificate Or Government Bonds India has traditionally been a “‘fixed income country”. Generations of investors turn automatically to savings instruments like PPF, bank deposits, post office deposits, etc for all their savings requirements. When it comes to investment options there are several in the market to choose from. However, a majority of individuals prefer to walk the path most traveled on and choose to invest their savings offering them fixed returns. These have been the more traditional and stable investment options to choose from. Saving and growth without being linked to market risks are the assurances offered by these instruments. Some are more suited for long term investments while others take care of your short term needs.  The difference between the fixed-income choices varies by  1.5 to 2 percent. People generally ignore that but over time this makes a big difference. Across a couple of decades, a differential of 2 percent a year will add up to a differential of more than 50 percent in the amount you gain.
