    Dear Revathy,

    1. Buy a Term insurance + medical insurance (family floater)

    2. Keep emergency fund ( 3-6 months expenses + EMI etc.) in savings a/c under auto sweep facility.

    3. if your time horizon is for 10-15 years, invest the remaining amount in equity MF. u can use online platform & its totally free & they have very gud customer service as well. Register yourself & enjoy investing.

    First and foremost, get medical and term insurance.
