Step 1] Start a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) of Rs 5,000 in a balanced mutual fund as soon as possible, generally before 2-3 years of planning for a child;
Step 2] Have a pre-birth corpus accumulation of around Rs 2,25,000;
Step 3] Convert entire corpus into liquid mutual fund; and
Step 4] Give SWP of Rs 5,000 or Rs 10,000 from Liquid Mutual Fund.
