Abstract:
People save their money with different objectives and ideologies for meeting the unending wants in the future, which creates a need to invest the same in some revenue generating sources and hence they try to find out the different alternatives of investment. This paper, by taking a case study of two different Universities namely Gauhati and Tezpur, tries to understand and review the different alternatives of investments being taken up by the respondents and review the different sources and criterion based on which such decisions are made and the rational behaviour of the investors are identified towards investment. Garrett Rank Test and Friedman Test were applied to identify the most important sources. From Garrett Rank test it was revealed that the most important factor in decision of the choice of investment for the respondents is the safety of their money. Friedman test reveals that the respondents prefer talking and exchanging views with their professional colleagues to collect information.
