Buy an Audi R8. Hang on to her till she becomes an antique. Make sure she is well maintained. Your kids will enjoy a lovely appreciation.

Alternately give it to me..i promise I will keep it safe and return it to you whenever you need it back

Regards,
Land.

Can you spare 10-20lac ? Buy some rubber estate at Pala or so. Rubber = income and you have an 'estate' , build a house, and then you have 'bungalow'; this can be your holiday home. Sell it in 3-5 years and double price.

Oh, forgot for 10-15 lacs you get couple of acres of rubber estate.

I would have loved to have done this - but the 50L component is subject to capital gains and I will HAVE to reinvest it right away to avoid that tax.

Poor water supply is a massive concern. Considering the number of apartments which have come up there, the ground water situation must be quite horrible.

Nitesh is in trouble? Read that somewhere? Let me google them up. Almost everyone is hammered right now. Sobha just got a cash-lifeline from the big boys at Infy.

The problem with buying this huge amount of land will be encroachment. I will have to work really hard to ensure that does not happen overnight. Which was why I was looking at a gated community project.

FD's are kind of out of the question now. I am looking at a good appreciation for my investment - not a safe haven.

By the way these are my observations and please don't hold me responsible for them or flame me about them.I'm sure the brainy Tbhians have tons of other better ideas.
I am here for new fresh ideas, so I wont hold you responsible. I am responsible at the end of the day. I cannot put the money in the market because of capital gains tax issues.

Those kids (of mine?) can go buy their OWN damn R8. They are getting kicked out of the house when they turn majors.

Land is a very good option. I am seriously considering it, but I am extremely lost in this area. Calls for a lot of research and thinking. Sparing 10-20 lakhs is not an issue really, since I have 50L in the bank waiting to be invested.

2nd Option is good since gone are those heyday when flats used to appreciate heavily. However, you can also considering spreading the money in the following way for 20 Lakh in hand

1) Purchase a plot far away from city where you know development will happen - 2-3 Lakhs

2) Spread some of that money in reliable and consistent return giving mutual funds- 2 Lakhs

3) Park some of that money in your parents name in a Post Office Account and with interest earned start another Recurring Depost account ( if they are above 60- you get a higher rate of interest)

4) Rest FD it at 9%

Where do you live? Do you have any dogs?

Jokes apart, I see JK.Das suggestion as something I would do.

Food prices = Going up
Population = Going up
Food Supply = Stagnant or dropping

Invest in land. Sow the seed. You shall reap.

While your at it, go green, go organic, get certified. If you really want to take it next level go natural. You can charge a premium with the 'organic' tag when you sell or if you plan to sell your estate in the future.

Area's in around Denkanikottai are still attractive, barring some water problems. The area will appreciate rapidly in coming years. Access through Electronic city.

If your interested in Kerala estates I know just the agency, honest & 100% transparent. Lots of NRI's have invested through them and successfully built up home stay resorts / retirement homes.

Do not invest anywhere ? Why not buy a Porsche Cayenne ?

btw We have some very rich guys with a lot of money to spare.
I know for sure that India is not poor anymore except some few unfortunate people. LOL

I am surprised that no one gave you the Bad Idea of investing in MF/SIP/Whatever MF. Investing in Stock Market is dangerous.

Well, IF i had that kind of money, I would research about some good MFs across different industries. Deposit that entire sum for some sort of FD from which I could withdraw a particular amount every month/fortnight. I am sure with this kind of money, banks can customise a scheme if they do not already have one. This sum goes via SIP to my chosen MFs every month. The best part - It all happens automatically, so I dont even have to bother about anything. The money just keeps growing.

In fact I am already doing so, its just that my amount is quite humble 50k (less than 10% of what you got), out of which Rs 3500/- goes for SIP every month. The MF is a dividend option which keeps getting back to same bank, so it is pretty much self sustaining now. I started it about 3 years ago, and despite all that downturn and all, I am still sitting at a profit of about 30%.

@Supercars, Investing in stock market is dangerous if you dont know what you are doing. Pretty much like buying cars without any research and all (which includes consulting tbhp), you might end up with a good vehicle or with a lemon from Skoda. There is an old saying in stocks, it is not the timing, but the time in the market. In my case, I was running a loss of around 15-20% in 2008, had i exited, I would've been also saying that stock is dangerous. But I have maintained my position and continued the SIP and thats what is yielding profits for me. With a modest returns of just about 10% p.a., my account will be perfectly self sustaining in another one year. Another year later, it would generate enough income for me to invest somewhere else as well. And mind you, the average returns are going to be 15%-30%!!
