However, amidst the pandemic, it is advised to invest in wealth creation instruments like the National Pension Scheme, Stocks, and Mutual Funds that give a higher rate of return as the inflation is hovering around 10%. However, these tools are subject to market risk and can swing anyway. If you are someone looking for a good rate of return with less to negligible risks, the saving instruments like Savings Bank, Fixed Deposits are the best.
