  • "Questions seeking product or service reviews are off-topic because they tend to attract subjective, low-quality, and spam answers. On the other hand, offerings in the Bitcoin space are still evolving rapidly which often renders answers outdated quickly.

That all depends on your local electricity costs, including cooling costs. It may also be determined by the rates offered at the exchanges you have access to.

I don't know of any India-specific mining profitability calculators, but here's one that calculates based on US dollars. You could probably convert your costs to dollars and come up with a reasonable answer.

  • Warning: be careful with calculators: I've come across at least one that does not take the halvening into account. It simply keeps using 25BTC per block. I haven't tried the one mentioned here, so this is just a general warning. – Jannes Jun 10 '16 at 9:16
  • I think , you are absolutely right. Because , the cost of electricity is really expensive in india. And a individual miner can't make much profit using high rate electricity. – letyouearn Jun 10 '16 at 10:50
