Surely, one can get good returns and safe investment is PPF. But, what Public Provident Fund (PPF) can not do easily, SIP can do and help you accumulate Rs 2 crore.
The calculation is given below.
15 years of investment in PPF
A conservative investor invests their money in government guaranteed instruments like Public Provident Fund (PPF).
Its specialty is that the money invested, the interest received on it, and the entire amount received on maturity are tax free.
If you invest Rs 6,000 every month in PPF, your investment in a year will be Rs 72,000.
By investing regularly, this amount will be Rs 19 lakh 52 thousand 740 in a period of 15 years.
Fifteen years is the minimum maturity limit of PPF.
If you invest money in PPF for 20 years...
If you keep depositing this amount in PPF for 20 years, the amount will be Rs 31 lakh 95 thousand 978 lakh.
Now if we extend it for 5 more years, we will get Rs 49 lakh 47 thousand 847.
The thing to note here is that PPF is a safe investment.
But, its interest rate is fixed every three months.
Here, we have calculated the current interest rate according to 7.1 per cent only.
If you invest Rs 6000/month in SIP
If you deposit your money in a mutual fund SIP every month for 25 years and get a return of 10 per cent, the value of your investment will be Rs 80 lakh 27 thousand 342 at maturity.
Now if you extend the same investment to 30 years, the return you will get will be Rs 1 crore 36 lakh 75 thousand 952.
Now understand the calculation of Rs 2 crore
Experts consider 10 per cent return to be very normal and conservative. It is normal to get 12 per cent returns in diversified funds.
According to this rate, in 25 years this amount will be Rs 1 crore 13 lakh 85 thousand 811, and in 30 years, this money will increase to Rs 2 crore 11 lakh 79 thousand 483.
