Many people have asked me “Is Hdfc Life Sanchay Plus” a good plan …?

I have seen the product and it looks like it will give you about 6.4% p.a. IRR over a real long term. I mean you could put in the money today…for 12 years you get nothing and then you start getting the return…and the IRR works out to about 6.3-6.4% p.a. return.

If you have appetite for Rs. 6L of debt products in a year, PPF will take care of your needs. If you are a well paid executive and have voluntary provident fund, you could pump Rs. 30L into that plan. Both these are surely good options. However, if you are a businessman looking to put in Rs. 30L a year in a debt instrument and you are under 50 years of age…it is surely worth looking at Sanchay Plus. I am over 50 years of age and hence am not eligible for the same, and hence not investing in the same. Saving is a better word than investing.

I do think that over a 30 year period when interest rates go down it is doubtful whether any instrument will be able to give you post tax return of 6.4% p.a. guaranteed return. Surely there are produts like SBI listed debentures which might get you say 7%…but remember this is tax free.

Am I recommending this product? well I know many people who have bought this product – pushed by¬† Hdfc bank – very aggresively. As I have not bought my research is not thorough. Here is a note by Basunivesh….do read on…and take your own decision.
