Avoid products which are claimed to be made for child future (whether they are ULIPs or Endowment Child Plans). Stick to debt and equity asset allocation for 30:70. Start investing in Ultra Short Term Debt Fund and one large cap mutual fund along with one mid cap fund.
Suggest you to buy term life insurance of your own selected insurance company to the tune of around 15-20 times of your yearly income (if you are not working woman, then in your husband’s name).
Avoid such junks like Bajaj ULIPs or any ULIPs and Endowment Child Plans.
