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.
On the other side, there are individuals out there who are utterly irresponsible with their money despite being able to save more. If you neglect savings and an unplanned bill may arise, then it's going to be a problem.
