How To Invest Rs 10,000 In India for High Returns? Investing is the best way to grow your money. Gone are the days when people kept their fortune (gold) buried below their land. Everyone is now interested to make more money through their investments.
“How many millionaires do you know who have become wealthy by investing in savings accounts? I rest my case.” – Robert G. Allen
However, when I look around, a very few people know how to invest their money intelligently. Most are even not aware of the investment options available to them in India. Today, I am going to suggest the best answer on how to invest Rs 10,000 in India for maximum returns. Therefore, be with me for the next 8-10 minutes to start your journey of financial investment as a successful investor.
There are a number of investment options available in India to invest Rs 10,000 or more. Here are the few options and the expected average returns in a year duration:
- Savings: 4–6% per year
- Fixed Deposit: 6–8% per year
- Mutual funds: 10–18% per year
- Stock Market: 15–25% per year
Besides, other investment options available in India are Real estates, gold, silver, forex, cryptocurrencies, commodities like petroleum etc. However, for an investment of Rs 10,000- these are little out of scope.
So, how to Invest Rs 10,000 In India for High Returns? Among all the options mentioned above, Investment in the Stock market and Real Estate are the ones that have consistently out-performed all the other investment options in long duration. However, investing in real estate won’t be possible with an amount of Rs 10,000 until you take a lot of credits.
Hence, Stock market is the best option available for investment of Rs 10,000 to get maximum returns.
Here is a graphical comparison of returns on Stocks, bonds, gold etc for a period of over 200 years.
Note: Although the above graph doesn’t show returns from Indian stock market, however, stocks (in general) follow the same trend compared to other investment options all over the world. Please ignore the figures in the chart.
Now. let us analyze the past of Indian stock market and find out -how much return you might have got, if you had invested Rs 10.000 in a few famous companies, a few years ago.
Eicher Motors (over 80 times returns in the last 10 years)
Products: Royal Enfield, Eicher Trucks etc-
If you had invested Rs 10,000 in Eicher motors 10 years back, then currently your return would have been over Rs 8,00,000 i.e. 8 lakhs. I wish my dad had bought the stocks of Eicher motors instead of Royal Enfield ‘bullet’ bike 10 years ago 🙁
Page Industries (over 50 times return in last 10 years)
Products: Innerwear & Leisurewear (JOCKEY) etc-
If you had invested Rs 10,000 in Page Industries 10 years back, currently you would have been sitting of a huge pile of over Rs 5,00,000 i.e 5 lakhs. Wish people had paid more attention to their underwears :p

MRF (Over 17 times return in last 10 years)
If you had invested Rs 10,000 in MRF 10 years ago, you would have got a handsome return of Rs 1,70,000 i.e. Rs 1.7 lakhs now. Just if any bike servicing guy had noticed how many people are using MRF tyres and had bought few stocks of MRF Tyres a few years back, he would have been a rich happy man by now.

Symphony (Over 12 times return in last 5 Years)
Products: Domestic air coolers, industrial air coolers, and water heaters –
If you had bought the stocks of SYMPHONY worth Rs 10,000 just 5 years ago, you would have got a return of over 1,20,000 i.e. 1.2 lakhs now. Huh, we enjoyed the air cooler but ignored the company 5 years back. Our bad 🙁
Eicher Motors, Page Industries, MRF, Symphony– all are common companies in the Indian market, which every Indian might already know. Most of the people have directly or indirectly used their products. Further, we can also notice that all these multi-bagger companies (companies which have given multiple time returns) have provided a great product/service to their customers, which resulted in constant growth in sales and profits.

How To Invest Rs 10,000 In India in Stock Market?
Here are few tips on how to invest Rs 10,000 in India in stocks to get maximum returns:
Do the research carefully:
Invest in the company, not the stock. If the company is doing great, the stock will also perform well. Research the company carefully before buying a stock. Understand the company first. Learn about its product and services. Study the company’s fundamentals.

Invest in just one or two stock:
Everywhere there is a hullabaloo about diversification while investing- ‘Do not put all your eggs in the same basket’. However, in reality, the concept is different if we expect maximum returns from small investments. Do not diversify your portfolio when you are investing just Rs 10,000. Instead, invest in just one or two great stock.
Diversification is used when you are investing a huge amount of money like Rs 50k or above. It’s the big bets which can help you to get great returns. Diversification kills the profit when the investment in small.
Let’s understand this with an example. Suppose, you invested Rs 10,000 in a good stock. The stock gave a return of +50% percent in a year. Then, the total return amount will be Rs 15,000. Now, let us assume another scenario in which you invested Rs 10,000 in 3 stocks. The return on the stocks after a year are +10%, +50%, and +15%. The overall return amount will be Rs 12,500 (+25%). All the three stocks cannot give similar returns and one of them might be fundamentally strongest. If only you had invested in the fundamentally strongest among the three, you would have been able to get a double return (from 25% to 50%) on your investment.
In addition, there is not much to lose for small investment like Rs 10,000. People diversify their portfolio so that they won’t lose lakhs of rupees (and go bankrupt) if their investment strategies failed. However, if you are planning to invest just Rs 10,000; then the reason for investment must be that you have extra savings and you want to get a good return on the investment. In such cases, go for a big sure shot.
Quick Note: If you do not have a big risk appetite, then ignore this tip and diversify your investments.
Invest in what you know:
You don’t need to find an unknown hidden stock to get multi-bagger returns. There are a number of common well-known stocks (Eicher motors, Symphony, Page Industries, MRF etc) which have given multiple times returns in the past and will give in the future. Look for a growing company around you. Study if they are listed on the stock exchange. Learn the fundamentals of those stocks. And if they are fundamentally healthy, invest in the stocks. This is an effective way to find multi-bagger stocks, even for regular investors.
This concept was introduced by the legendary fund manager Peter Lynch in his best selling book ‘ONE UP ON WALL STREET’.
- Invest in Mid-caps:
These companies have the potential to become a large-cap company in the long term frame. They have a high growth rate compared to the large caps which have already reached a saturation and the chances of large caps giving multiple time returns are highly unlikely. In addition, Mid-cap companies have the good capital to stay out of debt and live a long life. A good growing mid-cap stock can easily become a multi-bagger.
Few people advice to buy penny stock or the small-cap stocks for getting high returns. However, for the small caps, the chances of the company growing broke is also high. Most small-cap companies are not able to sustain in harsh economic conditions which is sure to occur once or twice in the long-term period. Therefore, investing in small-cap companies has more risk than reward.
