    I have given certain suggestion for your case
    • I assume that your investment earn 10% of returns( Very conservative)
    • First table – your present conditions
    • Second table – Your goals & term to achieve it ,Investment needed to achieve the corpus for the goals
    • Third table – amount to be invested per year
    • Suggested I crore insurance cover / (min 20000 – 25000) / year for a term policy
    • Check the status of all your Insurance plan ( Surrender most the plan and you can continue any one for next fifteen year to achieve 10%-12% returns)
    • Take a ULIP child plan for your child with 16 years term ,50000 premium .at 10% will get nearly 200000 , 4 mutual fund(Equity based,Diversified,Top 50 ,Gold fund ) – ( 10000/ . yearly-each ) at 10% result in nearly 1500000

    • Take a mutual fund ( Equity , Top 50 ) with a track record of more than 15% in 10 years
    • Continue the PPF account for retirement corpus . at 9% after 25 years result in 16 lakhs
    • Try to purchase a plot in a growing area for 500000 at 10% growth in next 22 year will five you 4000000 for your child marriage

    Should have atleast 6 month of monthly income as emergency fund

    I am not a financial planner – But still at my experience in Finance sector I made road map for you- Consult & review this with a honest financial planner ( yearly once )

    I am not sure about your present asset and Liabilities ( it may also play a major role )

    All the best

    I am afraid it doesn’t seem to me that you are reaching close to your dreams. All these insurance and ulips are good for nothing. Considering surrendering them. Invest in good equity MF for long term to achive ur goal.
