  1. Dear Parag, First of all please accept my congratulations that you are able to correct your mistakes. My special thanks for the fact that you not only corrected your mistake but also shared it with all of us. Glad to know that in between all of us were able to help you in some way.

    Please keep posting your queries. As you are now a satisfied soul, do the next good thing. help others to correct their mistakes or simply ask them to post their individual queries to discuss in this forum.

    The beauty & the most strong point of this forum, none of us are here to cross sell so most of the time the products/advisory offered are unbiased.



    1. I would agree best with the statement that the forum provides unbiased advice, as said by Ashal.

      I have seen a few websites where the ‘experts’ dish out advice to buy ULIPs saying it inculcates a fiscal discipline in the investor. What a Bull crap!! I tell them instead that investors can just invest in PPF and sleep off and still beat the ULIP returns without an ounce of Equity.

      People start SIPs and when the markets fall they stop the SIP! How unfortunate, that when the investment is going thru the accumulation phase with low NAVs people stop! Financial literacy is very poor in India and forums like these have started reaching more audience and hopefully we, as a nation, become financially aware over the next decade or so.

      Kudos to all contributors here!

    Congrats Parag.

    It is so overwhelming to see that people are now understanding the difference between investment and insurance, thanks to Manish and the Jagoinvestor team. There are so many people who pay exorbitant amounts as ULIP premiums but cannot answer a simple question of “How much are you insured for?” 🙂
