    Nikhil also tell me whether I should take term for wife also.I will also deposit some money for my daughter in sukanya yojna ,here intrest is 9.1%and it is announced in budget it is EEE.,regards

    Thank nikhil,instead of putting money in MF can I clear off my home loan?. Regarding health insurance if u ignore number of companies my family has insurance of 10 lac only,rest is critical illness (I have also mentioned that I have pre existing disease which may later on lead to some critical illness,so it is necessary for me),regards

    Few things I would suggest:
    1) Stop LIC Jeevan sathi plan 89 (SA)-1.0 lac,premium yrly 7554 rs,DOC-dec 2006 as you already have term insurance and its useless. Buy a term insurance from this money. HDFC, ICICI are good.
    2) Why have you taken 4 health insurances ? More companies more hassles. Just keep one or two (critical illness is also a type of health insurance)
    3) Your MF investment is VERY LOW (1k out of 60k salary). This needs to be at least 10-20k (depending upon your expenses).

    Congrats for the hefty increment. Invest all your extra money in mutual funds. Divide the extra 50k as:
    (i) 30k in a long term debt fund (markets are high, so keep equity exposure low now)
    (ii) 7k each in a large cap, small cap and a mid-cap fund.
    Find the best fund in above categories on
    (iii) After markets fall; divert 7k extra in the MFs mentioned in (ii) and keep investing 9k in (i)

    And whenever, you get more salary try to invest at least 70% of the salary hike.
