8 Family Budgeting Misconceptions demystified

Let’s put on our thinking cap:

Depositing our pay cheques in bank and using the credit and ATM card for spending seems easy. However keeping the track of your income and expenses, to get full value for your money is possible only with budgeting. Budgeting helps most of us to keep track of our income and spending and not overspend.

In practice 10 budgeting myths retard the savings of a lifetime. They are:

1) I earn a lot and need not budget: 
This requires a change of perspective. Michel Jackson lived like a king but died awash in $400 million debt.  Budgeting by watching your spending pattern helps trace unnecessary     expenses on clothes or eating out, and help you save for a future or for a much wanted dream holiday.  So how much you earn has got less relevance. What is more important is budgeting. Proper budgeting can make a low income earner to retire richer and overspending can make a high income earner a pauper.

2) I hold a secure job and see no reason to save: 
This does not hold well today with large corporations going in for labor layoff to save costs during recession. Small corporations also put you at a risk with the death of the owner or the company going into losses.

This insecurity demands caution to save for spending during such periods when you are caught unaware, with an emergency fund coming handy.

3) I am poor in calculations and cannot budget:
With useful tools like spreadsheet that help account for expenses and income earned make the budgeting much easier.  A look at the spending helps avoid unnecessary expenses to budget and save in future. If you are interested one can easily learn budgeting. So if you say ‘I don’t know how to make a budget’, it shows your level of interest and willingness to save for a secured future.

4) I am lucky; I will never be short of money: 
However your ability in meeting high bills and other unpredictable expensive events like life threatening accidents, or a major surgery without experiencing shortage of money may not be always true.

So better save and be prepared to face unpredicted contingencies and then use the savings for something else that you may consider desirable.

5) I pay my bills promptly and do not need budgeting:
Congratulations I appreciate your credit worthiness, but going into negative balance is also quite easy. You may be self disciplined. It doesn’t mean that you need not make a budget. Preparing a budget makes you much more disciplined and spend consciously. So budgeting with saving helps avoid going into negative balance or overdraft.

6) Budgeting could lead to deprivation:
Budgeting is not frugal living and foregoing all pleasures like a movie a month and an eat out once a week, but it just not allowing your earnings to be not overtaken by your expense. Everyone is planning to save, planning to invest, but do we have a well thought out plan for spending. A smart spending plan only can lead you to save more.

There is no need to feel deprived with budgeting; it just means saving a percentage of your income spent unnecessarily to have a secured future.

7) I have small wants and find no need to save:
This need not be a stable attitude in human nature, with you wanting to take advantage of certain financial trends in the market like buying house or land at cheaper rates, or investing at higher rates towards building a bigger retirement corpus.  Hence budgeting helps to save when you do not want money for a time when you could profitably use it.

Your wants may be small but basic needs like food, shelter, and clothing are becoming costlier with inflation. Also you need to take into account your health care needs of the future.

8) I get rises, bonus and tax refunds and find no need to budget:
I think you have been lucky all these years, however these benefits are highly unpredictable and placing ones hopes fully on them is futile. It is better to budget and save than depend on unpredictable benefits like bonus, raise and tax refunds. The recent recession has taught us a lesson to all of us which we should not forget easily.

Budgeting and your future
Take charge of your future now. Budgeting is the first step towards controlling your financial destiny. Don’t let your unconscious spending habits decide your financial destiny.

Indian Three Wheeler Industry (Performance FY 2010-2011)

The 3 wheeler Market in India is over four decades old. Initially, only 3 seater passenger autos were introduced. In eighties, lower capacity cargo carriers were introduced – 0.5 Tons open body Pick-up van. Till late eighties, 3-Wheeler market was virtually ruled by Bajaj Auto Ltd (the only manufacturer). In late eighties - early nineties, new manufacturers developed higher capacity category by introducing 6 seaters & 0.75 Tons Cargo carrier. And late nineties saw a renewed interest in the 3-Wheeler market. Optimism about growing need of free mobility as well as the need for remote and efficient distribution of the goods and services was the key factors for the same.

But the growing consumer demands for safety, comfort and space led to the evolution of 4Wheeler in this segment in the form of Tata’s ACE in 0.75 T segment (year 2005). And it offered all the advantages over a 3W. The idea clicked and the market changed drastically. The advantages included car like driving, higher speed, larger cabin space, more balanced structure and stylish looks. The market changed radically and today 4W numbers are higher than 3W.
The 4W introduced ate into the market share of 0.75T 3W more than 0.5T 3W. But, smaller 3 Wheelers were still preferred in load segment as compared to large 3 W. The primary reason for this was the higher operating cost as result of lower mileage and higher maintenance cost of the newer 4 wheeler cargo loaders.

In the three wheeler segment, the classification is broadly in terms of carriage (load) and passenger vehicles. Since the former does have a very limited capacity to carry goods and is not preferred by many, the three wheeler manufacturers are more into the passenger three wheelers. And the cargo/carriage segment is bifurcated into 0.75T and 0.5T. And the customer groups involve market load operators and the captive customers.

The emergence of three wheelers as an effective mode of transportation has benefited millions of Indians. Three wheelers are not only used for carrying passengers but are also used as luggage carriers. In India the three wheelers usually run on diesel and petrol but of late in some of the cities CNG run three wheelers have also come up in large numbers. The three wheelers used for carrying passengers in India are usually referred as Auto-rickshaws. Most of the state governments in the country are supporting the operation of CNG run Auto-rickshaws and also three wheelers with four stroke engines as they produce lesser harmful emissions. It has been found that most of the three wheelers running on the roads of the country come with mileage of about 34-36 km per liter of petrol.

The three wheelers have successfully helped to overcome the dearth of jobs in the country. Numerous people could be seen driving auto-rickshaws on the roads of cities like Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Bangalore and many more. Due to their simple construction and limited amount of investment the three wheelers as a mode of conveyance and commercial mechanism has gained popularity. What's more, their maintenance is also quite simple. 

Majors concerns for the 3 wheeler industry:
Passenger Industry:
 4 W Impact-Bigger Aspirational Value Products (4W) have started impacting industry, Safety Norms- Can be exploited by 4 W Entrants and influence permission for 3 wheelers plying, New Permits-In Cities, almost closed. Permit Resale Cost is very high and thus is acquisition cost, No Organised Financers in Passenger Segment and Private Financers charging as much as 40% interest Rate, Rising Interest Rates and Ban on diesel as a fuel (In metro cities): Shifting Sales towards CNG and LPG.

Carriage/Cargo industry:
De-growing Industry- Industry de-grown by 40% YOY, 4 W Impact-Bigger Aspirational Value Products (4W) have started impacting industry(42% degrowth for 0.75 T), Safety Norms- Can be exploited by 4 W Entrants and influence permission for 3 wheelers plying, Interest Rates has almost doubled in last one year and Ban on diesel as a fuel: Shifting Sales towards CNG and LPG in 0.5 T Category.

All said and done, 3 wheeler still constitutes a considerable number and has its manufacturers glued to the business. Although petrol/CNG/LPG forms a major percentage share in cities, diesel 3 wheelers are rampant in remaining portions of the country.

Indian “DIESEL” 3 wheeler Sales figures for FY 2010-2011:

FY 2010-2011 performance of Diesel 3-wheeler Carriage/Load Segment
FY 2010-2011 performance of Diesel 3-wheeler Passenger Segment 
The overall Industry figure for Carriage+Passenger Diesel 3 wheeler sums up to 274233 units. Piaggio has emerged as an undoubted leader in this category.

India's first Automotive brand to cross 5,00,000 fans on Facebook!!!

Recently Mahindra Scorpio became the first Indian Brand to cross Half a Million fanbase in the social networking site - Facebook. This was no easy feat - the brand had grown affirmatively and now is 5,00,000 strong community on Facebook. The community grew from a meager 2,900 to 5,00,000 population in just 15 months! This depicts not only the craze for the brand but also the assuring brand loyalty over the period of time.
Mahindra has always been a pioneer in terms of online marketing and customer interaction. Facebook proved to be an excellent medium for the auto manufacturer to promote its brand and thus connect its fans online into a single forum. The reason for success of Scorpio online was the sense of "COMMUNITY" in it. The forum allowed the proud Scorpio owners to flaunt their machines and share their experiences. The Adventure Saga (in form of Mahindra Great Escape Rallies) even made it more glitzy and thus the Scorpio group became the 'Adda' of all SUV lovers. The most important contributions was from the Scorpio 'brethren' who contributed to the success of this phenomena.
The Brand had created a sect of its own. Many initiatives were taken to keep this fraternity alive. A coffee table book was released in 2010 which was filled with amazing adventures, unending acclaim and appreciation for the product. The book which was named 'The Legend of Scorpio' took the Brand building to a whole new level. It was one of a kind for any automotive brand in India and received rave laurels for the initiative by its fans.
The next initiative in the line was an online game which allowed the gamers to drive their machines in most difficult terrains with relative ease. The game not only highlighted the off-road nature of the vehicles (Scorpio & Bolero), but also involved the participants to spend more time with these brands.This attempt of Mahindra was a great success. It won two prestigious awards at the FICCI BAF Awards 2010 viz., 'Best Online Game and 'Best Producer (Game Developer)'. And just in three months time Mahindra had one million unique visitors registered with a total number of eight million plays..!

All these initiatives have surely upped the ante for the brand; but have came out successful in creating a loyal fanbase for itself. Kudos to the brand for this wonderful achievement.  

How to save more by spending smarter?

The willingness and the ability to save money is the secret of building wealth. So as to save money, you need to spend less than you actually earn. Though it looks very simple when you say, it is really difficult to implement. There are plenty of ways to help you start saving money even on the very tight budget. Saving money or spending less is all about the personality, belief system, values of a family.

Spending less and saving more are lifelong living skills that need time to develop. Unless and otherwise, you have a written financial goals, you will lose your focus and go after consumerism and materialism.

To save more, obviously you need to spend smarter. To spend smarter, you need to understand you own spending patterns. Consciously you need to track all your expenses on a daily or weekly basis. So that you will be able to find out what influences your spending pattern.

Spending money has got so many influencing factors. But all these influencers can be classified into five broad spending influencers.

1)      Emotions:
Your emotions play an important role in your spending pattern. The positive feelings like happy, fun, joy can influence you to spend more on entertainments and gifts. The negative feelings like envy, jealous, shame, stress, depression, frustration can influence you to spend more on smoking, drinking, buying things you actually don’t need, relaxation and healthcare.
2)      Traditional Thought:
This is because of you belief system and your thought process. I need to buy a silk saree every year for my wedding anniversary. I have to bust crackers for diwali. These are all the classic examples of how your traditional thoughts will influence your spending pattern.

3)      Society:
Society in which you live will have more influence on your spending. You have to buy a car as all your colleagues are coming to office in their own car. On the occasion of your kid’s birthday, you need to arrange gifts for all the classmates of your kid. You should be watching this movie, on a first day first show.

This influencer is caused by friends, colleagues, neighbours, relatives, and club members. Even at times, the advertisements and promotional offers like a discount sale can make you to spend more.

4)      Habits:

Habits formed when you are growing up can make us spend impulsively. Generally this will be for our sensual pleasures. Spending on movies, music, eating out, smoking, drinking are the best examples for this influencer.

5)      Commitments:
This includes paying off your debts and loans, commitments towards family like school fees, buying groceries and other provisions, paying rent, paying for medical insurance. You are committed to pay these expenses earlier.

By tracking and analyzing your each and every expense, you will be able to identify the influencers which made you to spend. 

Here are some strategies to overcome these influencers and spend smarter:
Control Your Emotions: 
Instead of spending money, you can control your emotions by doing something else like doing yoga or meditation, watching comedy shows on TV, going to temple or beach. You need to solve the root of the emotion. You have to do introspection and need to keep a balanced mind always. Balanced mind is a key for spending smarter.

Self Talk: 
You need to consciously change your thought patterns to come out of traditional thinking. “I don’t really need a saree for every wedding anniversary”. “I am not a kid; so I need not bust crackers on diwali”. These kinds of auto suggestions will change your thought process and you will be able to really prioritize things on which you spend.

You are unique: 
You were born original. Please don’t die a copy. There is no need to feel bad if you don’t get to spend or buy things like your friends or people around you. You are unique and special in your own way. You need to discuss with your family and friends about “How to live happily by achieving compromised spending patterns?”

Learn and unlearn Habits: 
The unwanted habits which make you spend more can be unlearned. Good habits which make you spend smarter can be learned. Habits can be learned and unlearned. But you need to know it is not a quick fix. It involves a process and a commitment.

A habit is an intersection of knowledge, skill, and desire. Knowledge is ‘what to do and the why’. That is we need to spend less to save more and become richer. Skill is ‘How to do’. That is ‘how we spend less and what are all the strategies to be applied for spending less’. Desire is the motivation, the want to do. What are we trying to achieve by spending less? How that is more important to us than spending more. In order to make something a habit in our lives, we have to have all three.

Unwanted Commitments: 
You can’t avoid certain commitments like groceries, schools fees. But definitely you can discontinue unwanted commitments like the club membership in which you are not actively participating and not getting any actual use out of it; the chits impulsively you have enrolled with a jewelry shop.

Money not spent is saved. These above strategies will only work if you truly have a desire for future financial success. You need to be disciplined and persistent in the course of implementing these strategies. The more you practice smart spending, wealthier you become.

Enfield's ROYAL Voyage

One of the world's oldest motorcycle manufacturer, still redeems its cult status and has a tremendous fan following. It has a age old history in India too, when it used to sell its bikes to the Army (for obvious reasons the forces believed that the Bullet looked suitable for patrolling the country's border). The bikes were made in England and were imported to Indian soil. The show is now managed and owned by Eicher Motors in India and have a production unit in Chennai.

Recently the Chennai-based manufacturer has prompted to accelerate the production of its hugely-in-demand products such as the Classic 350 and Classic 500. The production is planned to double from 50,000 units to 1,00,000 units in lieu of the demand. Currently the demand easily outnumbers the production, and also claim a waiting period of even 12 months for some of its top running models. This has spurted Eicher to dynamically invest almost 300 crores in a greenfield project to expand exponentially. 

The company had grew 8.74% during the last financial year and had sold 54,475 units (which includes its 5 models which are sold in Indian market). The brand in a way has grown as a cult over the times and I wouldn't be wrong if I describe it as an "Indian Harley". They both share a common DNA - "Biking is a Religion". Both the bike manufacturers have binded their customers with the sense of brotherhood, community and of all the sheer pleasure of driving these machines.The message is clearly stated in its advertisements/galleries. One such example is -
It can be clearly seen in the photograph how a bunch of bikers gather together in the himalayan odyssey with one intention - what they call it as the 'Nirvana'. This is the kind of engagement the brand has with its customers. Royal Enfield organizes an adventure gathering of its customers called as "THE TRIP". This is one of the most sought after biking extravaganza on Indian terrain. A similar stuff is done by Harley for its HOGs (Harley Owners Groups) where it organizes events where its customers are invited to participate in anything from local chapter rides to pin stops, to state and national rallies. 

Royal Enfield has developed itself as a brand which is different in character and unique. Its products have grown to be known for its encompassing rugged styling, robust and durable engines. And I must commend the   company's effort in keeping the brand alive true to its tradition and also re-juvenate the sense of 'BIKING' among its owners. Kudos to the RE team and hope that its expansion plans go well (so that its fans need to wait less for their rides).

LinkedIn IPO: The way forward

As the usage of social media websites have shot up tremendously, the business paradigms are redefining the way it works. Among the years, the valuation of these networking sites has not only increased manifold but also led to evolution of multiple earning opportunities. This has led to excitement in the market and propelled a positive signal in the market.

There is enough buzz in the market about the recently launched LinkedIn IPO in the market. Although the loom of the yesteryears Dotcom Bubble still haunts investors, the IPO is attracting remarkable interest from its investors. In the first day LinkedIn had priced its IPO at $45 per share, giving the company a valuation of $4.5 billion! And at the end of the day, the stock had soared 109% to $94.5 and the final worth stood to humongous $8.9 billion.
The earnings of LinkedIn is primarily from its advertisements, subscriptions and the hiring tools that it provides to the recruiters. This is fueled by the large member base of around 100 million people.
LI would be the latest internet startup to go public this year. And assessing the response it has received, I’m sure will set a path for other companies such as Facebook, Twitter to pull up their own IPOs. Currently Facebook (which is world’s largest social-networking site) is valued at $79.4 billion (as evaluated at www.sharepost.com) and Twitter (famous micro-blogging site) is valued at $7.2 billion.

The IPO has flagged off both positive and negative thoughts in the market. While the heightened valuation has instated confidence among the web startups, this growth is also seen to be inflated and lots of analysts are skeptical about the future. But one thing is for sure – keeping the current growth/business model in mind, the IPO is surely rising to its potential.

How to Get out and Stay out of Debt?

11 ways to get out of debt and stay out of debt

In spite of steady, regular income there are so many individuals who live paycheque to paycheque, carry their credit card outstanding, and fail to save anything for retirement. If you are one of them, now is the right time to take action to come out of debt and stay out of debt. It is not only possible; it is unbelievably achievable.

List down all your debts
You need to take stock of all your loans. It could be credit card due, personal loan, car loan, housing loan, education loan, loan from FD, loan from insurance policies, loan from your employer, hand loan and so on. For each and every loan you need to note down how much you owe, the present interest rate, EMI, Number of months to be paid.

Negotiate for lower interest rates
If you could negotiate the interest rate and bring it down then you can come out of debt faster. Most of the credit card companies come forward for negotiation if you really show interest in repaying. They need not run after you to collect the debt. It will reduce their expenses. So they will be happy to negotiate. Balance transfer offers from credit cards are also a way to reduce your interest rate.

Refinancing and consolidation
Replacing a loan with another is known as Refinancing. By doing a refinance it should reduce your interest rate and it should bring down the time you are in debt. But most often people go for refinance that provide them lower EMI but increasing the time they stay in debt.

Categorise your debt
Housing loan can increase your net worth over a period of time. Housing loan gives you tax benefit also. For a business man car loan provides some tax benefit. Based on these factors a debt needs to be categorized. This will help us in comparing different loans.

Prioritize your debts
After sorting out various loans, now we can comfortably prioritize the loans. Obviously this will be based on the interest rates and tax benefits. At times paying off a small loan first can give you a lot of motivation to get out of debt.

Creating and Executing a Debt payoff plan
You need to create a debt pay off plan with different scenarios. So that you can find out how some more savings or a different repayment order will help you to get out of debt faster. When creating a plan, you need to choose one which is comfortable to your attitude. Otherwise, you may not execute it properly.

Refrain yourselves from applying for fresh loans
You need to make a vow that you will not be adding any fresh loans, till you come out of all your debts completely. Think for a moment, how you will feel when you become debt free. This will give you a lot of positive energy to come out and stay out of debt.

Postpone buying major assets
Buying a property or any other assets need to be postponed till you get out of debt. With your new ownership comes the new, probably large and unpredictable expense. This can make you deviate from your debt pay off plans and at times the consequences could be uncontrollable.

You stop using your credit card
There are two groups. One group of people uses the credit cards responsibly. That is they will repay the credit card dues in full when they receive the bill. The other group will pay the minimum amount due and carry forward the balance amount due. If you belong to the second group, you need to stop using credit cards temporarily. Take out and keep your credit cards in the locker. Once your financial situation and buying habits improve, then you can start using your credit cards again.

Change your spending habits.
Being in debt obviously means that you have been living beyond your means. The solution is very simple. Spend less than you earn and you will get out of debt soon. You need to change your spending habits. Then only this simple solution will be achievable. If you buy things you don't need, you’ll soon sell things you need. Don't save what is left after spending; spend what is left after saving.

Involve all your family members
You need to inform all your family members and dependents about your debt status. Then you will be able to take decisions with much more clarity. Moreover, if your family members know about your debt, they will also change their spending habits and support you in getting out of debt faster.

Consider the postage stamp: Its usefulness consists in the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there. Similarly, you need to stick to your debt pay off plan till you get out of it.

A new trend in Indian Cinema

In a recent interview when Aamir described his upcoming flick "Delhi Belly" as a game-changing movie which is all set to induce a new trend in the Indian Cinema, it suddenly caught the fancy of many people and kept many buzzing about it. All of Aamir's productions have received tremendous interest from film critiques as age-defining and dawning a new era in cinematic landscapes.
The movie is applied to receive an 'A' certificate for its extensive use of obscene language and visual content. The intent could be clearly seen (probably heard) in one of its promo songs "Bhag DK Bose". 

I would rather say that this is not something new.This trend was started off with Vishal Bhardwaj's 'Kaminey' - it not only shocked many with its name but also garnered immediate commercial success (something similar was observed lot earlier with the movie 'Loafer', but its content warded off the attention). The use of abusive language has also increased suddenly in Indian Cinema. This also depicts its acceptance (along with its wide usage) among Indian Audience. We are ready to accept title such as Yeh 'Saali' Zindagi. The evolving consumer (audience) mindset is surely catching movie producers attention and paving way for movies with abusive (or normal in today's context) language. However, this movie is surely gonna be an interesting watch!!!

Ford Figo - Ford's Game Changer

The American giant’s best selling car in the Indian market has been the Figo. Launched just over a year back, Figo has already clinched no less than twenty different awards from various automotive publications, websites and television channels. It seems that the hard work put in by the guys at Ford has finally paid off.

Before the introduction of the Ford Figo, Ford was finding it hard to mark their territory properly in the Indian market. This was a company plagued with problems like poor re-sale value, high maintenance costs, inconsistent quality etc. Their best bet was the Ikon which was doing decent numbers, especially in the taxi segment. However, India being the land of hatchbacks meant Ford had to have a small car specially designed keeping in mind the needs and desires of the Indian consumers.

For starters, the car looks bold yet has an under-stated appeal about it. There are enough modern design touches and this combined with a huge range of color options means there is a Figo for almost every taste. Step inside and the Figo sets a benchmark for small hatchbacks. It is not only airy but has enough room to beat most similarly priced small cars like the Maruti Estilo. The design of the console is brilliant, quality top notch and enough practical touches to keep families happy.

Diesel is emerging as the common man’s favorite fuel and Ford was clever enough to make use of the same powerplant that powers the Fiesta, though in a different state of tune. It does its job pretty well in the Figo and is very fuel efficient as well. Another feather in the Figo’s cap is the way it handles in traffic. It is very nimble and the suspension is further tuned to take on Indian roads properly – something that most small cars today miss out on.

Ofcourse there are a few limitations with the Figo. Being a low slung car, getting in and out for the elderly can be an issue. Even the top end variant doesn’t get rear power windows and the petrol engine is weak on both performance as well as fuel economy. However, the positives easily outweigh the negatives here and this is the reason why Ford is busy minting money with the Figo, both in India and abroad.
