Defense Savings DSC 10 years

Regular Income RIC monthly profit of Rs.927

Behbood Savings BSC specific for 60+ person. Rs1220 monthly.

i already have National savings certificate (special ones) the rate is already revised from october 1st , i didnt hear that it will b revised again ! where u got this news that from dec 1st the rates will b revised ??

actually i dont want to waste my excess money , so need to invest anywhere , where it is safe . Because manufacturing is totally flop here so cant take risk to manufacture anything , i m already in shares business but u all know the situation of share market here in pakistan ! Sugar is a good item to store but my inner isnot permitting me to do so as this is a general use item . no matter how much quantity i would store but after all this is the matter of humanity .

Regarding currency , i m not agreed because one can make much more money as compared storing dollars / yen etc /

Silver is a good thing this time, m planning to invest in silver , i can see the up n up n UPPP trend in silver very soon !

Read again my post carefully. I said that a new scheme is coming on Dec 1, 2010.

Adding more:

It will be a short term scheme may 6 months for those who don't like long term maturity investment.

As far as evision of NSS rates is concerned than its revised after every 3 months. So it will be revised on 1st Jan, 2011.

ok noted , but here i already asked the tenure around 6 months or more , its ok for me. any how .

well right at the moment i would say "Rice" the current price for super quality(Basmati) rice is nearly 2100 Rs per 40 KG so the price would rise to nearly 2700-3000 Rs in next two months, :D

Once you are done till feb then you can get into potato business. As in February potato price is nearly 5-7 Rs per KG. You can buy and store your stock in a cold storage usually available in the same area where they are harvested, and costs you like 5-6 Rs per KG for 6 months. In August-September price of potato reaches to 40-50 Rs per KG. So you can imagine how much you could make.

But Buying a good stock is bit technical work and selling your stock also requires some links in the whole sale market.

Edit:

There is nothing wrong in it. If you no one stocks it. None of us will be able to eat potato in summer season :D

^^ yes have done this potato thing 2 years back , nd i stored in okara (the hub of potato growing area) the draw back of storing potato is that you HAVE TO rely on cold storage , m based in karachi and the humidity conditions are not like that we can store potato her ein karachi on hyderabad regions , so we have to store these in punjab side , main thing is the distance , cant attempt frequent visits to cold storage to monitor the stock ! mor eover i have inquired with the insurance companies as well they dont insure cold storage items , specially potatoes !

I m a huge landlord alhamdoLILLAH , wheat is about to cultivate , i stored sunflower seeds , got some profits too ! but the main thing in that is we loose much oil contents when store the same , well any one of you who has some jan pahchaan with a good and reliable cold storage wala then do let me know please . I did just for checking 2 years back , also visited chooniya area and bought from the field directly . but the main badluck i had was the cold storage was not good enough as they claimed when i signed the contract with them ! so i need a good cold storage ! i would appreciate if any member refer some good cold storage wala banda :) thanks.

our family also does some farming n particularly potato in sialkot, n we also hav a cold store , though i m not much interested in farming , due to less electricity no 1 guaranteed loss less storage of potato last year , see what happens this time around, i ll happy to help u any way possible,

I think storing edible things to earn profit is against the teachings of our Religion as well as laws of Nature, If you are a "huge" landlord, don't steal others food rather donate it!

I really appreciate your feelings , and alhamdoLILLAH i do this and WILL do it on large scale as well once i will b called as a real ISLAMIC COUNTRY citizen. as its not possible to donate in the current scenario. Hope u understand . what we can do we are doing for humanity but after we also to look our family too ! More over its better to store than waste !

think over it .

potato idea is good when electricity is available as potato must b stored under 7 degree C and if the temp goes out of range then the glucose deposits will b increased and sweetened the potato ! some times rot .

i do store KHALI for milking buffaloes / cows but the rate of return is not much smart ! inflation is great these days so i m still seeking the best commodity to store !

You can always store "GOLD", people from ancient times also used to store it and this commodity never let them down :P

yes u r right dear , investment to profit ratio is very less ! thats y i mentioned about SILVER !

Agreed! Its also unethical, immoral and callous. Unfortunately this has become a “acceptable” form of business in this country. Many people went rags to riches by following this route.

agreed , but what if one is living in unislamic country where there are no islamic rules to follow , Please dont divert this topic to islamic or unislamic , i asked for the suggestions if u have u r welcome if u have not please read this ONLY , thanks
