Hi, we have sold off property worth few lakhs and I would like to know: What are the best investment ideas?
FD's are an option. But, we might be receiving lump sum. Still, thinking to accommodate some money in FD's. (for a span or 1 year first and then continuing depending on the situation then).
So, looking for some other investment alternatives. We are located in Hyd.
Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi, these days FDs don't fetch much interest. So, investing large amount in FD won't give high returns. Also, putting all money at one place doesn't seem to be a good idea. So, it's great that you are thinking for different investment options.
But, why are you looking for short term alternatives i.e. 1 to 2 years only? If you have excess money you can plan your long term investments as well. Anyways, you can invest some amount in gold, a favourite traditional investment option.

For short term investment, debt mutual fund direct plans can help you. Reliance, ICICI etc. offer same with interest varying around 7 - 8.5% . There is also benefit of to remove money from fund anytime.

Buy some gold, that seems to be the best option. You can sell that when the prices increase to gain some profit.

@surendranathm FD is my favourite. Earn fixed interest no risk just relax .
