  • What do you exactly mean by recession proof? Or are you saying Inflation proof? – Dheer Feb 7 '17 at 9:54

Can anyone suggest all type of investments in India which are recession proof?

There are no such investments. Quite a few think bullions like Gold tend to go up during recession, which is true to an extent; however there are enough articles that show it is not necessarily true.

There are no fool proof investments. The only fool proof way is to mitigate risks. Have a diversified portfolio that has Debt [Fixed Deposits, Bonds] and equity [Stocks], Bullion [Gold], etc. And stay invested for long as the effects tend to cancel out in the long run.

  • You mention investing in gold. Are you recommending buying gold as a long term investment? – Nosrac Feb 7 '17 at 12:47
  • @Dheer fair enough - I did not read your answer closely enough :). Comment removed. – D Stanley Feb 7 '17 at 16:51

I don't think there is a recession proof investment.Every investment is bound to their ups and downs.

If you buy land, a change in law can change the whole situation it may become worthless, same applies for home as well.

Gold - dependent on world economy.

Stock - dependent on world economy

Best way is to stay ever vigilant of world around you and keep shuffling from one investment to another balance out your portfolio.
