The goal of this study is to evaluate Patna women's savings habits and their degree of financial knowledge. Data for the study came from primary as well as secondary sources. Women are an essential component of contemporary society. Women make a variety of financial decisions, none of which are effective if they lack the necessary financial literacy understanding. The study would also identify the current disparity in financial literacy and make recommendations for potential solutions.
