For someone who starts their first job, with no particular goals in mind and no liabilities, it becomes easy to spend the entire salary. However, wealth creation takes time and that’s why it is advisable that one starts early. Investing small amounts from the beginning leads to a huge corpus later which is better than starting late and creating it in a short span of time. Here is what we advise millennials to do with their salaries:
Set goals: As one begins their job it is important to focus on long-term goals. Categorise your financial goals into short, medium and long-term goals. Short-term goals are objectives that are met within two years like buying a phone or car or saving for higher education. Medium-term goals are met between two to five years like saving for your own house. Long-term goals require more than five years such as saving for the future family and retirement.
Set a savings budget: It is easy to forget about savings when one has just started earning. But at the same time, it’s the easiest to save because there are no responsibilities or liabilities. The best way to save money is to have a saving budget in one place. Set aside a portion of your monthly income. Pay yourself first in the form of savings and spend the rest of the money guilt-free. Avoid acting on advice from friends, or you might land up with ad-hoc investments that may not be best suited for you. Start saving small portions at first and then increase the savings as your salary increases. This way you will have a sizeable corpus to meet your long-term goals.
Start saving early: Disciplined investments play a vital role in wealth creation. When you start saving early in life, you get a head start to meet your financial goals and then retire with a large corpus for a comfortable future. Compounding works the best and rewards the people who have started early.
The best way to explain this would be with an example; suppose you start at the age of 25 and put Rs 10,000 per month in an investment which yields 12% per annum, you will have built a corpus of Rs 6.43 crore by the age of 60. However, if you invest the same amount at the age of 26, you will have only Rs 5.69 cr in the same time frame. You lose Rs 73.50 lakh in just a difference of a year.
Invest in equity: Most Indians think that it’s risky to invest in equity or stocks which is why you may notice less participation in this asset class. Whatever limited exposure to equity that people do have is based on tips from family or friends, portals, stockbrokers or television. What they don’t realise is that equity as an asset class has the potential to provide highest post-tax returns in an emerging economy like India. Investing in equity can be highly beneficial, though the proportion of equity can vary in your portfolio based on your overall objectives, returns needed for goals, time horizon, and investments in other assets classes.
Get reliable advice: A professional’s advice is always a better option than taking a DIY (Do it yourself) approach based on advice from friends and family. A financial planner would draw up a financial roadmap for your goals after analysing your income and risk profile. He/she would also review it periodically to ensure that you are on track to achieve all your goals.

Everything You Need To Know About ULIPs
Everyone wants a sizeable amount of money that could be utilized to live the life they desire. In this world of technology as well as competition, you have only two options of making money; work either for someone else or start your own business. Furthermore, earning money isn’t even sufficient. The inflation burns a big hole to your pocket, where savings and investment become crucial in order to survive the financial catastrophe.
Investing your hard-earned money helps you build wealth. However, it is always essential to invest in something that helps you secure your family’s financial future, even if you are not there. Here, life insurance policies with investment provision help you in financial goal planning, and ultimately receiving a considerable amount at the end. Though traditional life insurance investment plans have limited advantages, you also have a better option of Unit Linked Insurance Plans that help you avail a wide range of benefits.
What is ULIP Insurance Plan?
A ULIP or Unit Linked Insurance Plan is a type of life insurance that offers you a life coverage along with some qualified investment tools such as stocks, bonds, etc. Unlike traditional investment insurance plans like an endowment policy, here you can manage your life coverage and the investment part separately, basis your financial needs.
Benefits of ULIPs
ULIP, as a product, offers you not just one or two, but three benefits- savings, investment, and insurance. Let’s see what the other benefits of a ULIP investment plan are:
ULIP insurance plans offer you an adequate amount that takes care of your family’s financial needs behind you. Usually, death benefits provided under a Unit Linked Insurance Plan are maximum of the fund value that has been accrued, or sum assured, or 105% of total premiums paid till the event of demise.
If you survive the policy tenure, you can avail of maturity benefits in the form of a lump sum or installments. In most of the cases, you can also set a frequency of pay-out and the settlement term up to 5 years.
Returns from Market-Linked Investments
Usually, in a regular life insurance policy, the premiums you pay are utilized for the life coverage. Whereas, under a ULIP scheme, a part of the premiums is invested in market-linked products such as debts and equities. Here, you can control the proportion of investment in different products or even a blend of multiple products. This is why financial goals with ULIP suit your needs best.
By opting for a ULIP scheme, you have the flexibility of choosing the fund that aptly suits your financial planning. If you notice volatility in the market and a particular fund doesn’t perform well, you always have a choice of switching to another one.
In traditional investment plans, you don’t get any clue of where your money is being invested. Well, ULIP as a product helps you stay updated with all the charges levied along with the Net Asset Value of each fund that you are investing in.
If you come across a financial crunch during the policy tenure, you can withdraw some amount partially from the funds accrued. Here, the insurer may levy particular charges for the same. You cannot make any partial withdrawal during the lock-in period or settlement term.
You can avail of tax benefits under ULIP insurance plans. The maximum of Rs. 1.5 Lakh can be exempted towards the premiums you pay under Section 80C, and for the maturity benefits under Section 10(10D) of the Income Tax Act.
How to Get the Best ULIP Investment Plan
Identify your goals and analyze the financial needs that you seek after a certain period. Remember that the financial goals you set must be long-term goals.
Don’t ignore life insurance benefits while going for investments. If you are young, make sure that your current, as well as future financial planning, is made properly. Here, a number of dependents, personal financial desires, education of your children and so many such aspects need to be considered.
Your investment goals may differ basis the financial planning you do. E.g., if you are planning to get a sizeable corpus for your children’s higher education or their marriages, the planning has to be done accordingly. Similar to be considered for post-retirement provisions, foreign tours, or even buying a new property.
Risk appetite plays a vital role in choosing the right ULIP scheme. Equity investments are best suitable for the people with high-risk appetite, whereas, debts come with lesser risk when returns are concerned. You can also choose a blend of both if you have a moderate risk appetite.
Always compare multiple plans, analyze which plan is best suitable for your needs and then go for it. Comparison certainly helps you get a better idea of which plan be more beneficial.

‘One Belt One Road’ (OBOR): An external challenge to India’s economy and security
In recent times China has emerged as a strong player in this new unfolding global system.
It has launched a new initiative called One Belt and One Road initiative. The aim of the OBOR project is to create an economic land belt and marine link to redirect Chinese capital to develop infrastructure and trade capacity of ASEAN, Europe, Central Asia, and Africa.
The concept of OBOR is based on certain principles where the broad aim is to establish multi-dimensional and multi-tiered connectivity to tap the market potential of the region’s leading countries to aggressively undertake job creation and promotion of consumption. It has the plan to involve more than 60 countries in the project and also plans to negotiate a free trade agreement with all of them, the entire OBOR.
China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC)
The China –Pakistan relations, over a period of time, have evolved to the extent that some scholars aptly call Pakistan, China’s Israel. Today, china clearly believes that Pakistan has a core part to play in its transition to global power and lies at the heart of China’s plan for ports and railways and for oil and gas. The CPEC comes at a time of growing geopolitical ambition of china, being partly a strategic gambit. One of the important aims of CPEC is to bolster the Pakistani Economy by addressing the Key infrastructure constraints in Pakistan.
In March 2015, China’s National Development and Reform Committee announced the OBOR initiative. The CPEC is part of OBOR and was formalized in April 2015 between Pakistan and China. This concluded with around 51 memorandums of understanding with a total investment of 46 billion dollars. CPEC has emerged out of the Chinese principle of co-operative mechanism with different parts of the world to increase its trade. It has identified the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor and Bangladesh-China-India–Myanmar(BCIM-EC) as the key initiatives broadly associated with OBOR.
India’s official position is that CPEC passes through the Pakistan Occupied Kashmir(PoK), which is a disputed territory, and land that has been illegally occupied. India asserts that China has not shown any understanding of India’s sovereign claims and thereby it will not be part of the OBOR. Again for India, OBOR is a national initiative of China to enhance its connectivity all over to ensure that it is able to sustain its low-cost manufacturing programme which is declining due to rising domestic wages in China. This is by integrating itself to global value chains.
India has now to decide whether it would allow political differences to prevail over economic interaction.
First ATM installed at more than 11000 feet above sea level at Kedarnath
The Uttarakhand chief minister of the double engine government Trivendra Singh Rawat has today inaugurated the ATM service at the historic Kedarnath Shrine precincts at more than 11000 ft altitude, after it was washed away in the massive ecological disaster of June 15. This is the only ATM in the entire Kedarnath valley.
Thanks to the untiring efforts and dedicated commitment of Uttarakhand government for having taken the pains to finally to get the ATM installed at the ancient Kedarnath Shrine after protracted five years, where more than two lakh pilgrims and tourists visit every season to pay their revered obeisance to Baba Kedarnath in His historic shrine established centuries ago.
Even the prime minister Narendra Modi visited this Kedarnath about four to five times after the dreaded ecological disaster for paying obeisance to Lord Shiva at Kedarnath and also directed the state government to expeditiously carry out the reconstruction work in the Kedarnath Dham precincts.
A massive budget was also allocated for the complete facelift of this historic shrine.
If we measure the approximate number of visitors at this historic shrine taking an average of one lakh visitors every season, the figure would come to more than five lakhs. One can imagine how much inconvenience the visiting pilgrims were confronting in the absence of an ATM. The earlier available ATM was washed away in the heavy deluge on June 15/ 16 2013 that killed thousands of pilgrims from all over India who’d converged for Lord Kedar’s darshan.
We remember the news of this ATM being damaged due to the high-velocity tides and currents and of the deluge of the Chora baari lake also known as Gandhi Sarovar in June 2013.
On the day of this deluge and afterward, wads of notes were seen floating far away in the river which was finally picked up by some Sadhus who tried to siphon them off clandestinely but were caught carrying the wads of notes collected by them floating in the water.
Finally, the government of Uttarakhand realized this inconvenience to pilgrims and opened the only ATM at Kedarnath Shrine. The chief minister Trivendra Singh Rawat jubilantly inaugurated it. Better late than never, after more than five years in 2019 we have the ATM again after it was washed away in 2013.
In a tweet, today along with the pictures of inauguration of this new ATM the chief minister Trivendra Singh proudly tweeted: Harsh ka vishay hai ki Kedarnath Dham mein pehla ATM aaj se shuru ho gaya hai. @ HDFC _Bank dwara sthapit ATM se shradhaluon ko badi raahat milegi. 2013 ki aapda mein Kedarnath mein maujud ATM bah gaya tha.
Matter of pleasure to announce that a first ATM has been installed at Kedarnath shrine. The HDFC ATM will be of immense help to pilgrims. In 2013’s disaster the Kedarnath ATM washed away in the deluge.

Benefits of filing ITR (Income Tax Return) even if you are below taxable limit
ITR Receipt is an important document
Having an ITR receipt is important because it is more detailed than Form 16, entailing your income and taxation along with revenue from other sources.
Use as address proof
ITR receipt is sent to your registered address, which can serve as residential proof.
Helps the bank loan documentation process easier
Being a diligent income tax filer makes it easier for banks to assess your source of income when you apply for loans like an auto loan, home loan, personal loan, etc.
“Banks usually ask for copies of tax returns filed for previous 2-3 years at the time of applying for the loan to ascertain the income capacity of the individual. Hence, to apply for loans a tax return would be required to be filed”.
Avoid penalties or scrutiny from the tax department
From FY 2017-18, up to INR 10,000 would be levied for non-filing of ITR. This black mark will remain for years to come.
For a hassle-free visa application procedure
At times visa authorities ask for copies of past tax returns, hence to apply for a visa a tax return would be required to be filed. Embassies, especially those of US, UK, Canada, etc. when processing your foreign visa application, are particular about your tax-compliance.
To buy an insurance policy with a higher cover
If insurance companies have reasons (non-compliance) to believe that you are a tax-evader, they will not give you policies with more cover.
When employed, your employer will deduct TDS on your income. However, if you have made investments that are tax deductibles, it reduces your taxable income. So, the TDS deducted can be refunded, but only if you file your return. The same holds true for TDS deducted by any other sources.
Makes life easier for freelancers and independent professionals
Freelancer or self-employed people don’t have Form 16. This is the only document they have to show that he has filed the ITR. Without this, they can face funding issues and transactional problems.
Experts say that if one plans to start their business and need to fill a government tender or two for the same, they will need to show their tax return receipts of the previous five years. This again is to show your financial status and whether you can support the payment obligation or not.
However, this is no strict rule. It may vary depending on the internal rules of the government department. Even the number of ITRs required can vary.
Credit Card Processing
Banks can reject your credit card application if you haven’t filed your ITR.
Compensate losses in the next financial year
Unless you file the ITR, you cannot recompense your expenses/losses in the previous financial year to the current. As per the income-tax provisions, if tax returns are not filed on time, unadjusted losses (with some exceptions) cannot be carried forward to future years. Hence, to ensure that the losses are carried forward for future adjustment, a tax return would be required to be filed.
Helps to avoid extra interest
If you don’t file ITR, the belated return could lead to extra interest at 1% per month for the remaining tax payable by you. For example, banks would deduct tax from interest on fixed deposits exceeding a certain threshold. To claim a refund of tax deducted by the bank (if any) on the interest income, a tax return would be required to be filed regardless of the taxable income.

Have we registered our brand name yet?
The brand name is the very soul of the company. With the rise in the number of brands in India, the likelihood of the brand name being stolen has increased. Therefore, it is high time that we take measures to protect our brand name through Trademark registration.
Why we should consider trademark registration?

DPIIT summons food aggregators like Zomato, Swiggy over predatory pricing
The Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) has summoned food aggregators including Swiggy, Zomato, Foodpanda and Uber Eats over restaurants complaint of them engaging in deep discounting. The dispute between restaurants and food aggregators has been going one for almost a year.
DPIIT has called meeting to resolve offline restaurant concerns, which is quite similar to what offline retailers had with e-tailers, said an official aware of the development.
The meeting will be attended by food aggregators and restaurant associations, including the Federation of Hotel & Restaurant Associations of India and National Restaurant Association of India. It will be chaired by DPIIT secretary, Ramesh Abhishek.
Govt will try to address the restaurants issues through mutual discussion and find equal growth opportunity for the industry, reportedly said officials.
Commerce and industry minister, Piyush Goyal, had earlier warned e-comm firms, in almost similar cases, to avoid hurting small businesses through their predatory pricing practices. Goyal had categorically said that the government will not allow small retailers and kirana shops to be wiped out.
The restaurant associations have time and again complained against food aggregators harming their business through making consumers discount addicts.
Two months ago, restaurants had complained, about the impact of deep discounting offered by food aggregators, on their business. Through predatory pricing food aggregators are forcing restaurants to drop prices, restaurants said.
Food aggregators have also indulged in running their own private labels, who are eating away their businesses and using consumer behaviour data to consolidate their business, they added.
In January, over five hundreds of restaurants had complained to the CCI.
