While this trend is not so famous in India, you can go for it if you really want to earn money. Try to convince your parents by telling them it just a way by which you can earn money to be able to afford things without having to ask them for it. You can apply for job at McDonalds or other eating outlets and fix working hours according to your college schedule. This will allow you to earn a good amount of money besides getting you a chance to get free or discounted food as well.
As for other tips, all I can say is “a penny saved is a penny earned”. If you are running out of ideas to make money, start saving. Some quick “low hanging fruit” tips to save some quick cash include – switch to MetroPCS or Boost for cellphone (I only pay $20/month), switch auto insurance to Insurance Panda ($25/month), and start using GasBuddy (saves me like $100/month at least. I drive a lot).

You just need some knowledge, some motivation, and the willingness to take risks. It could definitely turn out to be a very lucrative venture for you.

Keep track of events like valentine's day, prom night and teachers day and approach different colleges to allow you to put your stall which will maximize your sale.
There are various ways students can earn money to at least generate their own pocket-money. We have already written a few posts about this in the past. So this post is a round-up of some of the old, as well as new methods you can earn money online while studying. This does not apply only to students, but also to house wives or other unemployed people who want to earn some money.

Apply for new scholarships and grants. A lot of students think that they are only eligible for funding when they initially apply for admission. This is a mistake! There are often new scholarship opportunities for upperclassmen, though they aren't always widely advertised. You may also be able to apply for external scholarships or grants, which are offered from groups outside of your school.
