10 Best Personal Finance Blogs in India 2020


What is personal finance? In simple terms how effectively one can handle money. I think these 10 personal finance bloggers from India are justifying the true meaning of money management through their blogs every day. Let's find out the list of top 10 Indian blogs on personal finance niche.

You can create this list in many ways considering different factors. But personally, I tried to list the most popular ones as per their simple ways of explanation, writing style and the message they wanted to share with the audience.

Best Personal Finance Blogs in India 2020


I am not going to mention here the big websites like Moneycontrol.com, Economic Times, etc. as they are not that easy to get through for beginners. People want to read stories of individuals, their own experiences and then only they learn. And I think these 10 personal finance bloggers are doing their best to help people through their websites.

Top 10 Best Personal Finance Blogs in India 2020 (By Finance Bloggers)

There are many websites in which you will find amazing information related to personal finance. But this list of Indian finance blog is not about them. Rather I picked only few of those blogs which are running by individual finance bloggers in India. Here are a few of the popular finance bloggers of India that you must follow in 2020.

1.Jagoinvestor.com (Manish Chauhan)

Jagoinvestor.com was started long back by Manish Chauhan, where he used to review financial products (mostly LIC policies) and explained how people are getting trapped with the misselling of insurance policies. Gradually, Manish got a huge response for his interest and knowledge in the personal finance area and Jagoinvestor became one of the most popular personal finance blogs in India.

Now it is a big brand in India and they have also started providing financial planning services. Here are a few useful links to their services and resources you will find useful.

Manish Chauhan is also one of the popular writers of the current time, who wrote a couple of best personal finance books for beginners. Here is the list of a few of the popular books from Manish Chauhan page.

2.Cashoverflow.in (Pardeep Goyal)

CashOverflow was started by Pardeep Goyal back in 2016, with a simple aim to showcase how one can live a perfect life without spending much. Pardeep is a multi-talented person who has worked in the IT industry for a long time and was also involved in a couple of start-ups which did not see success.

But, we all know failure is the pillar of success and that's what was waiting for Pardeep as well. Within just 2 years from that time, he has turned his blog CashOverflow into one of the most successful websites in India. Just read his latest income report, and you will understand why I said so.

Personally, I really like the way Pardeep narrates every experience of his life through his website to educate people. He is a big storyteller as well and has contributed to many big publications. Check out a few of his articles:
If you are a regular reader of CashOverflow, you might have noticed this popular statement of him, which I like the most.
My friends call me as a “Kanjoos Baniya” (Frugal Guy) because I always find a way to save money on anything that I buy.

3.Freefincal.com (Mr. M. Pattabiraman)

Mr. M. Pattabiraman,  a physicist working at IIT, Madras has turned his blog freefincal.com an awesome resource, especially for mutual fund investment. If you want to learn the advanced things of personal finance, mutual fund analysis, that is the ultimate destination.

But this is not the end, as Mr. M. Pattabiraman & Ashal Jauhari, together started an awesome & vibrant Facebook group to spread the knowledge and awareness about Indian personal finance.

You can visit the Freefincal eBook section and explore the free eBooks available. One of their popular books "You Can Be Rich Too: With Goal-Based Investing" has become a massive success. I have also purchased this book and found that very useful for beginners.

  18. Do you think that to dramatically improve your success rate you have to read tons of thick books, buy expensive software and spend countless hours of learning more about Forex?

    What I'm going to share with you is something very EASY to use and very POWERFUL at the same time.

    Let me give you an EXAMPLE:

    Imagine you trade a system that makes 50% winning trades, but another 50% are losing trades. If you increase your odds of winning by only 20%, that would make 70% winning trades and 30% losing trades.

    Well, HOW TO accomplish that?

    Just pick the best trending pair at the current time and simply follow the trend! I have found ONE INCREDIBLE TOOL that continuously scans the Forex market and picks the most reliable trending pairs for you.
