2 Minute SIP Challenge Liya Kya?

  • 3mins read

Are you putting off your dreams because you don’t know where to start? Looking at the price tag is always the best place to begin – Kyon Ki Bhaiya Sabse Bada Rupaiya.

Just take the 2-min SIP Challenge…its the first step towards achieving your dreams. All you have to do is tell us your dream and by when you hope to materialize it and we’ll tell you what you have to put aside as SIP every month.

The simple answer is: start a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP).

Let’s say you take a home loan of Rs. 25 lakhs to buy your dream home. The interest rate is fixed at 7% p.a. for the tenure of 20 years and the monthly instalment comes to approximately Rs. 19,400. The total amount that you will have to pay over the next 20 years works out to Rs 46.52 lakhs, of which the total interest amounts to Rs 21.52 lakhs.

Now if you can spare 0.2% of the amount of your housing loan, i.e. a negligible amount of Rs 5,000, and invest it in an equity fund through the SIP route every month, let’s look at what happens…

Over a period of 20 years, you will contribute a total of Rs 12 lakh to the equity fund. Assuming it delivers a rate of return of 10%, your total holdings in this investment will be worth ~Rs 38.28 lakh at the end of the 20-year period.

This will more than cover the Rs 21.52 lakh that you have had to pay as total interest on your housing loan!
