Corona Armor Policy
Currently the biggest gift may be the corona armor policy. The corona epidemic that has raged around the world has not yet returned to track. Regarding its vaccine, still nothing can be said with certainty.

Give financial confidence through FD
In the new year, you can give a gift of fixed deposits (FD) to your family. FD has long been a safe option to increase its capital. Families will get about 5 percent interest on investments made in FDs in banks. However, if it seems that interest is getting less in FD, then small finance banks can also consider FDs of banks. Small finance bank is getting about 7-8 per cent interest.
RD: Big returns from small savings
FD is a better investment option but its biggest drawback is that it has to deposit a lump sum. In such a situation, you can give a gift of Recurring Deposits (RD) to your family. In this, large returns can be obtained from small deposits. In this, banks are paying more than 5 percent interest on the investment made and the post office is paying 5.8 percent interest annually.

Mutual fund is very important while preparing financial plan for long term. Most people are afraid of investing in the stock market because they are afraid of losing capital. Mutual funds are a better option for such people. Investing can be started with a small amount in it, which can become a large amount in the long run. One can understand this with an example. Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is a method for investing in mutual funds. Now let’s say that you want to collect some units of gold in the near future, such as for children’s wedding time. In such a situation, if you invest in a SIP related to gold, then you can start raising even more than 100-500 rupees and can earn a significant amount of gold in future.
