    Now a days banks are offering 9 – 9.5 % interest on F.D. for over 1 year. You can consider this option or invest in MF Monthly Income Plan.

    Hi Irshad

    Since you are very clear that you need your money after a year, one of the best options to explore (in conjunction with your statement that you are in a high tax bracket) is the Fixed Maturity Plans provided by mutual funds. Here is an article that can help you with understanding more about FMPs http://bit.ly/i9KNHl

    Now to address the more important question of relating the current market situation and why would FMPs be meaningful, you can read more here http://bit.ly/dXDyIy

    Happy informed investing!
