Mukesh D Dedhia, director, Ghalla Bhansali says: “We have to treat retirement planning as separate from savings for children’s’ education, marriage, housing, car, travelling, medical expenses, etc.” Factors specific to each individual could be current income, past savings, inherited wealth, income stability, current expenses, number of family members, health of family members and especially of the earning member, immediate and future family responsibilities, relations amongst family members, partners, colleagues, Dedhia advises. Naveen Kukreja, CEO & co-founder, Paisabazaar.com wants youngsters in their 20s and 30s to invest in Equity Linked Savings Schemes (ELSS) and other equity mutual funds, given that they would have at least 25-30 years to build a retirement corpus. “Equities beat other asset classes and inflation by a wide margin over the long term. Moreover, longer investment horizon gives youngsters more time to recover from market volatility and benefit from the power of compounding. ELSS also provides tax saving up to Rs 1.5 lakh in a financial year, under section 80C,” Kukreja adds. Apart from inflationbeating returns, equity MFS also offer a higher degree of liquidity, as they can be redeemed whenever the need arises. Even the lock-in period involved in ELSS is just three years, which is the shortest amongst tax saving and retirement products such as PPF, pension Ulips and NPS. Your investment in pension Ulips and PPF gets locked in for five years and 15 years respectively, whereas, under the All Citizen Model, your NPS investment is locked until retirement. “Traditional pension plans such as pension Ulips and NPS involve a compulsory purchase of low-return annuities, which equity MFS do not involve. With average life expectancy rising, this would increase the risk of running out of your retirement corpus during the lifespan,” says Kukreja.
