“Buying a Harley has been my childhood dream”
“I am a music lover, especially EDM. Going to Tomorrowland would be so cool!”
“Retirement planning is a must. I need to ensure that I have enough resources at my disposal even when I am old”
Countless dreams and one life, so plan kya hai?
Sounds filmy but where’s the lie? We dream day in and out. Flying like a bird, taking a cruise, visiting the Swiss Alps, winning an oscar, asking out your crush or buying Mercedes, what is it that you were dreaming of last night? And we don’t mean dreams that you have only when you sleep, we mean all things that you aspire to have in your life – your goals and desires. Dreams are exotic, fancy, imaginative and mind-blowing. Some of them are so magical and fancy that they won’t come to fruition ever or they could if you join acting classes and get launched into movies but, truth to be told, a lot of them aren’t as far fetched as they look. Trust us, buying a Mercedes isn’t as difficult as you might think of it today. All it takes is proper planning and discipline.
And oh! How we folks love to plan! After all the dreaming, comes the endless planning. Planning for today, planning for the next day, planning for the weekend. Every dream we hold close to our heart, we run in every direction and want to fulfill it, make it our reality. That’s human, isn’t it? Every time you dream of something, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind? We bet it is, “How do I fulfill it?”
Going to Sydney, learning to play golf, skiing in the mountains, tasting the best red wine, buying those boots you have always wanted, painting your room lilac, going for a movie every weekend, flying business class, getting a bigger car for the family, learning horse riding, renting a better apartment, buying a mac – thinking about all the good things in life every day is what makes life fun. So, for all your cool dreams and goals – plan kya hai?
We will answer every “plan kya hai?” for you. Since the day we came into being, “plan kya hai?” has been the only question we have wanted to ask people. “No, I can’t buy such an expensive laptop”, “I would not be able to learn to play golf” – only if you had a rupee for every time you tell a “No” to yourself. There is no end to the number of Nos you tell yourself each day! What if you can turn all the Nos into Yeses. Yes, I can and I will fulfill all my dreams. After all, there are so many things to do and such a short life, you can’t get anywhere until you have a proper plan for it. It could be related to loaning money when you need it, getting insurance for future-proofing your family, planning for a foreign trip or saving for a Harley, we will help you in reaching all your goals. Let’s tell you a little bit about how:
For every urgent and unexpected need – plan kya hai?

Families are better together, but life can be unpredictable so in order to ensure their security – plan kya hai?
You love your family just like we love our family (which is our user base by the way). Thus, we advise you to get yourself a term insurance plan. Today is full of opportunities, to do or not do things, so why not make full use of the power of now! Life is tricky and uncertain, most of the time we take it for granted that we will have a joyful tomorrow. Yes, we wish you a joyful tomorrow but as a friend, it is our duty to warn about the uncertainty tomorrow holds. For future days, better or worse, you need to have a plan. It would be a good idea to get your family insured, in case things don’t go as per your original plan. When your “plan kya hai?” lands on insurance, Term insurance schemes are one of the best available options in the market looking from the perspective of tackling uncertainty.
Few other benefits of term insurance schemes are:
1. High coverage at low premiums
Term insurance schemes offer a high amount of coverage, upwards of Rs.1 crore. This high amount of coverage is available at a really low fixed premium amount. It is a well-known fact that this amount is especially low if you start early on in life.
2. Income tax saving
Well, let’s be honest, no one likes paying tons of their hard-earned money in the form of taxes to the government. We all want to save as much tax as possible, and getting a term insurance plan is a great way to start. Under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, you can save as much as Rs.1,50,000. The death benefit paid to your nominee (in case of unfortunate death) is tax-free under Section 10 (10D) of the Income Tax Act 1961.
3. Death Benefit option
Most term insurance plans give a lump sum amount at the time of maturity but there are many plans available that offer the monthly income in excess to the lump sum amount. Some of them offer increasing income in order to tackle inflation.
Now, once your “plan kya hai?” for insuring and safeguarding your family is sorted, we can jump to the next priority.

Bank FDs and RDs are the stuff of the past. The minimal return rates are no more attractive which brings us to the point of discussion. Money, when invested, grows. Historical data shows that when invested, money tends to grow over a period through the power of compounding. This means when you invest a certain principal amount, the returns accumulate over a longer period in order to generate a much bigger amount. This is the primary reason why it is a great idea to set a goal in advance.
When it comes to compounding money, the secret factor that works wonders is “Time”. Yes, time does magical things to your money. You just need to be disciplined enough about investing and the rest is good to go.
The future is so much better when planned. Setting a goal means preparing yourself for the future. It could be a customised investing method where you pick a scheme of your choice and invest in it or invest in a fund picked by us. Most of the time people invest in order to accumulate enough capital for later. It could be saving for your retirement, your children’s education or marriage, or an emergency fund. Investing is a great idea to grow your money.
Saving taxes is a must so – plan kya hai?
The end of every financial year marks the rush to save tax. The HR manager is after your life for investment proofs, the calculations are a bit too complex and you are confused as to what to do. The biggest challenge is not that people don’t want to save tax; to be honest, most of them want to, after all, nobody likes to see their hard-earned money slip by. The challenge is that they don’t know how! The “how” is the biggest challenge here.
