Currently, you are investing ?35,000 per month in SBI Small Cap Fund and ?25,000 per month in Quant Flexi Cap Fund.
Insurance Coverage
You have wisely secured a term insurance policy with a coverage of ?1 crore, ensuring financial protection for your family in case of any unforeseen events.
Estimating Retirement Corpus
Retirement Age and Expected Corpus
With the goal of retiring at 45 years, you have approximately 9 years left to accumulate a sufficient corpus for retirement.
Estimate your desired retirement corpus based on your expected expenses and lifestyle needs post-retirement.
Monthly Savings Requirement
Determine the monthly savings required to achieve your retirement goal within the specified timeframe.
Consider factors such as inflation, investment returns, and risk tolerance when projecting your savings target.
Investment Strategy for Early Retirement
Asset Allocation
Review your current investment portfolio and asset allocation to ensure alignment with your retirement objectives.
Consider diversifying across different asset classes to spread risk and optimize returns.
Risk Management
Evaluate the risk-return profile of your investment portfolio and make adjustments based on your risk tolerance and time horizon.
Ensure a balanced approach to risk management, considering both growth-oriented and stable investment options.
Retirement Planning Considerations
Lifestyle Expectations
Assess your post-retirement lifestyle expectations and determine the level of income required to maintain your desired standard of living.
Account for factors such as healthcare expenses, travel, and leisure activities when estimating your retirement budget.
Long-Term Financial Security
Plan for long-term financial security by incorporating provisions for healthcare expenses, inflation, and unexpected contingencies into your retirement plan.
Consider setting aside a contingency fund to cover emergencies and unforeseen expenses during retirement.
Conclusion: A Path to Financial Freedom
By adopting a disciplined savings and investment approach, you can work towards achieving your goal of early retirement with confidence and financial security.

37F with one kid, living in Bengaluru. We have own house with no loans. I have a corpus of 3.2 Crores and expenses are close to 25L per year including vacations, school fees, shopping, regular household expenses. How much more corpus is required for me to retire at 45 if I need to maintain similar lifestyle? Thanks in advance, sir.
Ans: Understanding your financial situation, aspirations, and concerns is crucial to charting a path towards a comfortable retirement. Let's delve into your query.

Given your current annual expenses of 25 lakhs, extending this lifestyle into retirement necessitates a sizable corpus to sustain it over the years.

Evaluating Current Corpus
Your existing corpus of 3.2 Crores is commendable, laying a strong foundation for retirement planning. It reflects prudent financial management and diligent saving habits.

Estimating Retirement Corpus
To retire at 45 with a similar lifestyle, we need to factor in inflation, healthcare costs, and unforeseen expenses. Considering a life expectancy of 85 years, a conservative estimate suggests a corpus of around 8.5 Crores.

Closing the Gap
With a current corpus of 3.2 Crores, you're approximately 5.3 Crores short of the required amount. This gap underscores the importance of robust financial planning and strategic investment decisions.

Crafting a Strategy
To bridge this gap, we can explore avenues like systematic investment plans (SIPs) in diversified equity mutual funds, which historically offer higher returns over the long term. Additionally, optimizing tax-saving instruments can enhance your savings rate.

Conclusion
Retiring at 45 is an ambitious yet achievable goal given diligent planning and disciplined execution. Your proactive approach to seeking financial advice is commendable, and I'm confident that with the right strategies in place, you can realize your retirement dreams.

Sir, pls advise between 1. NIEIT, Aurangabad in Electronic system engineering Or 2. SMVD univ. Katra in Eand C OR 3. NIE Mysore in CSE?
Ans: Amit, decide on these factors (1) ECE is slightly difficult than CSE. If you decide for ECE, number of recruiters will be comparatively lesser than CSE. And if you still want to switch over to Software by your 3rd & 4th year (with additional Certifications in Software), some software companies prefer even ECE Students and you can get campus placement (2) Location preference (3) Prefer either CSE or ECE over Electronic System Engineering. Whatever Institute / University & Branch you choose, you should keep upgrading your skills from his 1st year itself till your Campus Placement during your last year, from LinkedIn, Coursera, NPTEL, Internshala etc. and / or any other online platforms, recommended by your College Faculties, to be COMPETENT among other Students.

Hi,My son got sandip University nashik cse (AIMl) is it good college to go for his studies or else need to try another colleges in Bangalore??
Ans: Raju Sir, you have asked the need for Bengaluru Colleges. If your son has appeared for COMEDK or any other Private Colleges' its own entrance exams, better he tries through them. It depends upon your son's Rank / Score & the streams he prefers. Recommended before your son goes for Sandip University (if he has no other option, as time is very less now). Whatever Institute / University & Branch your Son chooses, he should keep upgrading his skills from his 1st year itself till his Campus Placement during his last year, from LinkedIn, Coursera, NPTEL, Internshala etc. and / or any other online platforms, recommended by his College Faculties, to be COMPETENT among other Students.
