Financial planning is a buzzword in today’s world. Authors aim to understand the awareness about the need and implementation of the financial planning amongst the Generation Z (those born between 1997 and 2012) with the help of primary data collected. Authors are interested in understanding the perspective of the Generation Z about earning-saving-spending with respect to the concept of the financial planning. Increased per capita income, improved life span, varying social structure from joint family to nuclear ones and lack of robust social security system; justify the need for a change in the management of personal finance. Regulators and governments are pulling away from guaranteed pensions and employers are pulling away from offering lifetime employment. Hence individuals, now need to take on the responsibility of creating wealth for themselves. This highlights the need and importance of personal financial planning. Authors aim to understand awareness level of financial planning among students who are future savers, aged between 18-25 years (Generation Z) based on testing their exposure to the current Indian financial system as a whole, covering financial institutions, markets, instruments and services.
