The primary data for the project regarding investment and various investment DECISIONS were collected through.

The secondary date for the project regarding investment and various investment DECISIONS were collected from websites, textbooks and magazines.

Then the averages of returns over a period of 5 years are considered for the purpose of comparison of investment options. Then, critical analysis is made on certain parameters like returns, safety, liquidity, etc. Giving weight age to the different type of needs of the investors and then multiplying the same with the values assigned does this.
