Sakshi is able to save around ₹20,000 per month from this ₹50,000 and she is planning to use this ₹20,000 for her retirement corpus that can create around ₹1 lakh monthly income when she turns 60.
On investment tool that can help Sakshi achieve her post-retirement goal; Vinit Khandare, CEO & Founder at MyFundBazaar India Private Limited said, "One needs to keep inflation post-retirement in mind as well.

Vinit Khandare of MyFundBazaar India advised investors like Sakshi to go for equity mutual funds SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) as it yields around 12 to 14 per cent in long-term. He said that equity mutual funds investment easily beats inflation in long-term investment. He also advised 15 per cent annual step-up in SIP as it helps an investor to bring down its monthly SIP to the lowest possible levels.
