  1. Sir,

    For getting more return than FD / Post office time /term deposit ,shall it be better to invest in ICICI Pru money market fund. It is for short term and lump sum money meant for marriage (3/6/9 months period)?

  2. i personal feel that fd is not that beneficial now, specially if you are in 30% tax bracket then it makes no sense as interest will be extremely less. kvp and nsc looks like a better option to me.
