    Very well said! Very informative.

    Thanks. What’s your take on Bharat 22 the new ETF to be launched? I see few overlapping sectors across the two govt ETFs. Will be handy to have a quick comparison of the two before actual launch.

    Also another point to add to your above list:

    1) Invest in high yielding zunk rated corporate FDs (although there are hardly any available now!! May be Kerala Transport may fit the bill).

    2) Do not invest in NPS or VPF as a retirement solution. Rather go for high cost/ low yielding (6-7%) annuity plans or retirement plans.

    Do we need to take separate health insurance though company where i am working is already providing to employees?
    I have a doubt whether company insurance will work after retirement.
    If it doesn’t work i am thinking to apply policy after retirement. Is it feasible? Do i need to pay high premium at that time?
    Please help me with right decision.

    • Hi Narayana, Company insurance would not work after retirement. However there are companies which are tied up with health insurance companies that are offering top-up plans where you can take it and consider as personal health insurance plan after retirement.
