Earning ₹ 2 Lakhs per month looks so hard at first sight. But believe me, it is doable and it’s not that hard to earn ₹ 2 Lakh per month in India. Today, In this article I will discuss how to earn ₹ 2 lakh per month in India in a legit way.

Well before I move ahead, I have something for you – Good news and bad news. The good news is that earning ₹. 2 lakhs/month doesn’t require you to be a doctor or engineer. The bad news is very few people know and believe that they can earn ₹ 2 lakh per month.

In India, Money is the subject never taught in the school or colleges. The average Indian experience the power of money at the age of around 25 years. By that age, there are a lot of concepts about money that an individual should have learned.

So how to earn ₹ 2 lakhs per month in India?

First of all, have a look around you and check people who are earning through the skills. Here what I mean by skill is not academic degrees. It could be anything from a carpenter to Air conditioner technician to a LIC agent. You will find something similar in all of them, the skillset they possess.

There are many professionals or freelancers who are earning around 2 lakhs/month. I personally know a LIC agent who is earning around 80 lakhs per annum, that is around 6.6 lakhs per month. An electrician or technician earns ₹ 1000-2000 per visit. And they are visiting no less than 8-10 customers a day. So they can easily earn 2 lakhs per month without any capital requirement. All they have is their skillsets.

A plumber charges anywhere between 300 to 500 per visit and he must be visiting around 8-10 people a day. How much he earns? There is no end to the list, I can go on and on and on.

Not only in India, but the earning of skilled people outside India is also much higher than this. That’s why there is a high demand for skilled people outside India.

I learned a lesson at the age of 30 that to earn ₹ 2 lakhs/ month you need not be a doctor or an engineer.

There are so many ways to earn ₹ 2 lakhs a month in India. You need to be a specialist in any of the domains you like. Acquire knowledge, there is no substitute for this. You have to have good knowledge about anything that you like. Gone are the days when only doctors and engineers are making money and flaunting their knowledge.

This is how you can earn ₹ 2 lakhs per month in India.

Below is the list of few activities that can make you earn ₹ 2 lakhs per month without even an academic degrees.

  • Become a mobile app developer
  • Become a freelancer/consultant
  • Online selling (through Amazon or your own website) – People nowadays sell stuff through even WhatsApp
  • Become a blogger
  • Start your Youtube channel
  • Start affiliate marketing
  • Domain buy and sell
  • Become a Graphic designer
  • Start an E-commerce website for a unique product

Most of the above-mentioned activities are No. brainer. Anyone with domain knowledge can start earning out of these activities. You need to be consistent and hardworking in order to be successful.

Getting a salary of ₹ 2 lakhs per month in India is very difficult. India is an overpopulated country so there is stiff competition in the market for jobs. People are ready to work for half the salary than what you are earning or asking. Also, it takes many years of effort to reach that level.

What Should you Do?

Well, there are only two things required to earn 2 lakhs per month. 1) Concentration 2) Hard work

There is no substitute for these 2 things. You must concentrate on the domain and acquire the knowledge that is required to become a pro.

Hard work is the key to success. You have to do a lot of hard work to achieve 2 lakhs per month as an income. You can’t be successful spending a few minutes a day like you do for your hobby. You need to really spend a good amount of time to reach your goal.

Earnings will come gradually and for that you must do hard work with consistency.

Process to get success

  • Think and shortlist your area of interest
  • Cross-check your knowledge and expertise in that field
  • Acquire knowledge (if required)
  • Draw a plan (a detailed one)
  • Stick to that plan
  • Again stick to that plan (because I am here sure you want to quit)
  • Allocate time and resources
  • Be consistent (don’t doubt your ability, you can do it!)
  • Be patient (Roam was not built in a day)

You must put quality time into your work and wait for some time to level up your skills. It takes strong on your skills. So give time to let grow your strength.
