Ans: Dear Rajshekhar,
Thank you for reaching out for financial advice. Based on your requirements, I suggest the following investment strategy to achieve a fixed monthly income of Rs. 25,000 and invest the remaining amount for 5 years or more.
Fixed monthly income:
To achieve a fixed monthly income of Rs. 25,000, you can consider investing in a combination of fixed deposits, post office monthly income schemes, or debt mutual funds with a dividend payout option.
For instance, if you invest Rs. 30 lakhs in a fixed deposit or a post office monthly income scheme with an annual interest rate of around 6%, you can generate a monthly income of approximately Rs. 25,000. However, please note that the interest rates might vary depending on the bank, post office, or financial institution you choose. Do consider taxes and inflation while making these investments.
Investment for 5 years+:
For the remaining Rs. 20 lakhs, you can consider a mix of equity and debt mutual funds. A balanced or hybrid mutual fund, which invests in both equity and debt securities, can be a good option for a 5-year investment horizon. This diversified approach can help in achieving moderate returns with lower risk exposure.
You can also explore other investment options such as National Pension System (NPS) or tax-saving fixed deposits if you're looking to save for your retirement or avail tax benefits.
Please note that this is general advice, and I would recommend consulting with a certified financial planner or advisor for a personalized investment plan based on your risk tolerance, financial goals, and specific circumstances.
I hope this helps you in achieving your financial objectives.
