    answer to query-1. what if the sensex doesnt fall to that level? OR if it does and you invest at that level, and it goes on falling further to 10000 or so. Then what will you think and do? Better is to plan your strategy and do SIP with or without lumpsums.

    answer to query-2. franklin india index plan – sensex is probably the best.

    answer to query3.
    pros: remains invested in equities and does not have any fund manager bias. lower management fees as compared to any actively managed fund.
    cons: has to track the index which in India is not so well diversified as compared to some other countries.
