  1. sir, Give me self help group loan in our target areas in Tamil Nadu.500 shg’ good selection only.. give me for 5 corer only please kindly consider the project.

  2. Sir, how to transcribe an audio file into text? Is there any software which can transcribe automatically when the file is run?

  3. The best transcription services which are accurate is done by humans, that is why many such jobs are posted online. Software can be used to transcribe an audio file into text but the accuracy greatly suffers. In some cases it rarely manages to even cross 50% accuracy. So until then humans will be preferred over software based translation.

  23. Hi..I m a homemaker n by proffession teacher..wan to earn money online without any investments ..do let me knw how to go with it..thanx

  24. All these articles are only people who have specialized skills. For general work, you have sites like elance, freelance etc., but the competition is very stiff and jobs are based on biddings. People tend to quote very low and your chances are limited if you have not done jobs for minimum number of hours on these sites. Mturk pays vert less but most of the people from India get rejected as the jobs are meant for US residents. Other jobs like clicking ads etc are very low paying jobs not sufficient to cover even your internet charges. I may be sounding pessimistic, but my experience during the last six months has been bad. I have qualifications, skills etc, but is age is against me. Youngsters should continue to try.

  25. Dear Balan

    Thank you for sharing your experience on our website. You are right it takes a lot of hard work to earn money online. Also it is not easy as claimed by some dubious websites. Since you are elderly you should try tutoring so that youngsters can gain from your life experience.

    All the best

  28. Hey Abhay , I’m 22. Recently graduated with a BBA degree from a reputed college and i have decided to take a year off before i get back to school for MBA. I have good social networking skills and I’m a quick learner and fluent in English language. I’m not into writing articles nor do i have any advanced expertise in teaching any subject. What do you recommend i can do to earn money from home by investing 5-6 hours 6 days a week ???

  29. You could try Day Trading or Investing in the Stock Markets. With Rs 10,000 you could buy shares of upto Rs 30,000 to Rs 1.5 Lakh and profit from daily movements.

    You could also try working offline for event management and promotional agencies, where you can earn up to Rs 1000 per day.

    All the best

  33. Hi Abhay
    My self saravana.i’m doing my ug in Automobile Engineering.Due to financial issues in my family i decided to earn money through online.what can i do to earn money.?

  34. Hi Abhay,

    Sorry to say, but the ways mentioned in this article are not India specific. Sure, Indians can pick up work from global websites but as a reader, I would appreciate some elaborated information about Indian ways of making online income.

    For example, recently I tried influencer platform BlogMint, where they pay just for tweeting or promoting campaigns over social media.

    For Freelance work as well, we can rely more on Indian platforms like Truelancer rather than global platforms like upwork where competition is more.

    What are your thoughts?

  35. I have recently retired from a full time service and was employed as a Commercial Manager in a reputed company dealing in electrical appliances. I am interested in taking up part-time assignments. Would appreciate if you can provide some leads. Thanks,
