I am 34 years old and my CTC is 7lakhs and my wife is 31 years old and her CTC is 5 lakhs. For this financial year we have not made any investment for tax saving, since we were planning to purchase a house. But it got postponed to next year. For tax saving, I am planning to invest 50k + 50k in 5 years tax saving bank FD in city union bank which offers 9.50% pa. This investment is purely for creating the retirement corpus.
Please suggest me whether this is a good idea considering the interest rate offered even though return is taxable. Or any option other than PPF,NSC and ELSS. Please suggest me….
