Example: Recall the days of our great grandfather when in few rupees they can easily fill the kitchen with a month’s food. But nowadays you can easily imagine that what you can get in rupee.
The average inflation rate of India is 6.2% which means if you can buy an item for 100 INR in 2020 and if you want to buy the same item after a year then it will cost you 106.2 INR, so keeping the money in Almira depreciated the value of money.
Keeping the money at home which remains INR 100
If you put the same in the bank it will go maybe up to INR 104.2 considering that the annual interest rate is 4.2%
Still, you are short with 2 INR to buy the same item.
