    Hello Sir, I would like to invest 6k/months in the mutual funds through SIP. I had bad experience with SBI infrastructure ….I lost 8k in that a couple of years ago. I’m don’t want to take any big risk and would like to go for balanced funds. Time horizon would be 5-7 years. Please advice. Thank you!

    • Mahesh, Investors who invested in sector funds would see such bad experiences. My suggestion is that you invest in balanced funds like ICICI balanced fund or HDFC balanced funds…

      • Mahesh

        Hello Sure sh
        Thanks for your advice. Could you please help with the best balanced funds as of now? You’ve suggested ICICI AND HDFC balanced funds. I’m ready to take little risk say about 25% for better future. I’m planning to invest 6k/month. So far I hv 3 jeevan saral LIC policies and make small investments via NSC and no other savings. my salary fluctuates between 24k to 20k/month and my monthly expenses is approximately 12k. I hv only one depended (70+ years old mother). please advice. thanks.

        • Mahesh, apart from balanced funds, you can start investing in ICICI pru focussed fund and Quantum long term equity fund which are in large cap segement. This can provide good returns to you in long run.

    i comes in 10% slab.




    • Arvind, On Rs 2 Lakh, you would get 9% interest which comes to Rs 18,000 and for 2 years it would be Rs 3,600. Tax on this can come to Rs 3,600 for 2 years. If your spouse has some source of income and if this can be proved such funds pertains to her, you can invest in her name and get tax exemption.
