Traditional Chits Vs. eChits

Chit Funds

In our previous articles, we have made a clear comparison of how chits are a safe option for savings.

We also made a caution that registered chits only provide you the much needed security.

In this article, we will make a quick comparison of chits and eChits. For the benefit of the audience, we will define both the terms:

Traditional Chits: Chit is a sort of community funding where a group of individuals come together, contribute a predefined amount every month (period) and one person among the group will take the lump sum. This process will continue till all the group members get the amount. This is traditional way of doing chits.

eChits: The same process enabled on technology to create transparency and trust are termed as eChits. With the advancement of technology and mobiles, chits have gone digital with anytime, anywhere access. IBG eChits is one of India’s first digital chit fund company.

Here is a quick comparison between a traditional chit and an eChit
