I'll recommend a pen-paper-ink combo for under 1000 rupees that works like a charm.
For paper, Classmate Pulse notebooks, which run for round 150 rupees for a 300 page notebook.

For Ink, buy Waterman Blue or Black (or any other color you like) for around 400 rupees.

For the pen, get the Jinhao X450/X750/Shark/51A in a Medium or Fine nib for 400-450 rupees.

And there you have it! This combo has withstood the struggles of an engineering student in India, so it will not disappoint you!

Can you check, whether your notes are fading ? Jinhoa X750 is a decent pen.But  It is a heavy pen and it may have quality control issues sometimes. I would suggest, a beginner must go with safe Indian pens (3 in 1) rather than Chinese. The reliability of my ASA daily is astonishing. I am impressed with Bril ink. It is an excellent cheap ink. It's only problem, It fades !

I haven't seen any fading with the inks I've used.
And I agree, ASA pens are far better, but they're super hard to come by these days.
