Grocery Store

Bangalore is the city of busy people. A lot of the people there live alone or in shared flats as their native town is elsewhere.

You can get a good amount from every single house if you provide plumbing, cleaning and electrician services at their doorstep. Major investment in this business is in marketing. You can start with small scale in one or two locality then expand your serving area slowly.

Career counseling is all about providing the right advice to the students in their career path and to the jobber also who are looking for better career alternatives.

Taxi/Cab Rental Business

This business doesn’t require much effort and can provide you with a considerable monthly income. You can purchase cars and put them on a rental basis. Rent some to local travel agencies and rent the remaining to Ola/Uber. This way you have managed to create a fixed income that you will receive every month. You can also buy more cars with that income and then start your car rental business, reach out to tourists or people in the city who want to book a cab for few days or some occasion and start earning. Though the investment is a bit on the higher side as you will have to purchase cars, but the investment will be worth it as the demand for cab rental services is really high in the city.
