Investing in NPS will make you a millionaire
NPS is a market linked retirement oriented investment option. Under this scheme, NPS money is invested in two places, Equity i.e. Stock Market and Debt i.e. Government Bonds and Corporate Bonds. You can decide how much of NPS money will go into equity only during account opening. Usually up to 75% of the money can go into equity. This means that in this you are expected to get slightly higher returns than PPF or EPF.
Now if you want to become a millionaire through NPS, then its method is very easy, just a little trick is needed. Suppose you are 20 years old at this time. If you invest in NPS by saving Rs 74 for the day i.e. Rs 2230 for the month, then you can do this. That is, when you retire after 40 years, you will be a millionaire. Now suppose you got a return at the rate of 9%. So when you retire, your total pension wealth will be Rs 1.03 crore.
Start investing in NPS
|investment every month||Rs 2230|
|investment period||40 years|
|Estimated Return||9 percent|
Bookkeeping of NPS Investments
|Total invested||Rs 10.7 lakh|
|total interest received||Rs 92.40 lakh|
|pension wealth||Rs 1.03 crore|
|total tax savings||Rs 3.21 lakh|
Now you cannot withdraw all this money at once, you can withdraw only 60 percent of it, the remaining 40 percent you have to put in an annuity plan, from which you get pension every month. Suppose you put 40% of your money in an annuity. So when you are 60 years old, you will be able to withdraw a lump sum amount of 61.86 lakhs and assuming the interest is 8%, then every month pension will be around 27500 thousand rupees, that is different.
|Estimated interest rate||8 percent|
|lump sum amount received||61.86 lakh|
|monthly pension||Rs 27496|
Although it is a market linked product, it is possible to change its returns. The mantra of any investment is to start investing in it early.
