    Dear Abhi, in 4-5Y, you should not expect mind boggling returns. At best 7-8% post Tax return from debt products. I’m not considering Eq. as intermediate volatility may eat up your capital also.

    Currently I can invest up to Rs. 5000/- per month.

    Whatever the goal period, in current scenario I can have parts of this investment. One will go for child’s post birth expense and one will be for home. Considering the priority I can have lager share for the 1st one, but defiantly I can invest at least Rs. 500 for 2nd one. As investment quota goes up , It can be managed raising up the investment.
    But to do that I need a proper choice which will give max return on 4-5 yrs, what are the choices related to that.

    RD ?
    FD ?
    Or else ?
    (Future value for the home have been considered.)

    Dear Abhi, Now it’s simple to you. focus on your near term goal for saving for your to be born child. Once you reach the target amount divert saving towards home related corpus building.
