About "Investment options for Middle Class" topic:

Indians are traditionally savings oriented but Only a small number of daring Indians ventured into the stock market. The big learning from the survey is certainly the seeming lack of attention paid by the urban middle class to Financial Planning. That too at a time of high decibel levels on matters of personal finance with enough light and sound in the media and among the public about the myriad investment options available. All that preaching is certainly not getting practiced. So here let us discuss what the Investment options are and which are the investment options for middle class people in India?

It is not unusual for investors to inquire the prospect of investing in precious metals, particularly gold, followed by silver. Gold is expected to offer low returns and remain very volatile, more volatile than stocks.
Rijo Stephen Cletus  |  Supported idea  "SIP (Systematic Investment Plan)"  |  4 years ago

rakeshbhatnagar  |  Argues in support of  ""Consumer Class""  |  1 year ago
Middle class can not save because they spent over their living ,children"s education and rest is spent in maintaining / inching their status towards a higher level. Due to this they are not able to save.
pragati parihar  |  Argues in support of  ""Savings Class""  |  3 years ago
Indian middle class is more insecure about future than upper and lower class hence they save more than they consume.
Swati Raut  |  Argues in support of  ""Savings Class""  |  4 years ago

If your income is more than minimum tax-exempt slab, then the easiest way to save tax is to bring down that income to the exempt slab or the lowest slab possible. So, in case your income is Rs.3 lakh and you are working man, you must bring it down to Rs. 1.6 lakh so that you don't have to pay any tax. This can be done by making some investments that are allowed to be deducted from your income before tax is calculated. these investments not only save tax but can also but also be a part of your overall portfolio of wealth creation.So the smart thing to will be to not look at these as part of your tax saving exercise but to weave these investments into larger objective to wealth creation.
