What are the benefits of Chit Funds?

A chit fund is a very unique financial instrument, which acts as both a borrowing and savings instrument based on when you decide to lift the chit. Unlike other traditional financial instruments, the dividend loss is minimal and gives you a better rate of returns both in terms of borrowing and savings. When compared to the market rates you have to pay from money lenders (while borrowing) and get from traditional savings instruments (while saving).
