POSTED BY Meghna De ON July 18, 2013 4:25 pm COMMENTS (4)


I need historical return data for the following asset classes in India:
– Government Securities
– Corporate Bonds
– Real Estate of Delhi and Mumbai

The data needs to be from 1980 onwards.

It wold be of tremendous help if someone could provide me with links for the same.

Thank you!

    This is the link for average interest rates on Central and State Government Securities.
    In case you still require it. 🙂

    1. Thanks for the link. I no little about this I have so far worked only historical Sensex, FD, gold and SB account returns.

    I am working on a project to find out historic returns on various portfolios. For this, I need data on each specific asset class too.
    Is there any websitedatabasebook you can suggest wherein I might come across this information?
    I am not averse to calculating it. Is there ANY way?

  3. Tough one. I wanted this for permanent portfolio calculator and could not find them.

    In any case real estate returns cannot be provided for a city. There is no authentic source for this since it has not been regulated.

    It may also be difficult to get a complete listing of Corporate bonds in one place.
    RBI should list govt securities but it will tough to navigate through their site

    May I ask why you need this information. Just curious.
