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. Now you may believe that no one invests for 20 years but that’s not the case. So losing large amounts of potential income happens all the time, to practically every single saver!
