  1. Hi suresh ji I am serving in defence as 5 year of service I want to invest about 1lac money plz guide me where how and when to invest.I am interested in FD RD and mutual funds like ICICI Pru fmcg .girls sun life front line .ICICI pru flexi and SBI ultra short term plz mail me .

    1. Manoj, If you want to invest lumpsum of Rs 1 Lakh, my advice is to invest in Bank FD and Debt mutual funds. In Debt funds, you can choose SBI Dynamic bond fund or IDFC Dynamic bond fund etc. ICICI Pru FMCG is high risk investment, but I would recommend to invest through SIP (equal amount of investments every month). Birla SL Frontline is also good for SIP. ICICI Pru Flexi income plan is good ultra short term fund. Invest only if you are want to park money in short term. SBI ultra short term is just 6 months old. Please hold till we get confidence on this fund.
