Hi,

I am asking about a Financial Advice on behalf of my Aunt (Divorced) 50 Years Old ,She has 25 Lakhs FD Invested in Indian Overseas Bank (Govt Bank) Which gives 5.1% and Now in Coming year from January 2023 onwards she needs this money on a monthly basis for livelihood.

Currently ,What is the best option for her, Other than FD Who cant even Beat the Inflation, I know her Risk Profile (Low Risk) so, I think options are like National Pension Scheme, National Savings Certificate are good for her right?

Please, Tell us your advice ? I think investing in Mutual fund is good like Debt Fund or Liquid Fund But i am not sure whether it suits her profile or not

invest whole 25lakh in rbi savings bond maturity will be 7 yrs nd its completely safe. Interest will be more than 7% so its better than any fd she will get interest payment every 6 months.

Low risk : Post Office MIS, SWP, debt funds, bandhan bank basic FD at present rates gives 14583rs monthly with 25LFD. (I don't suggest making single fd of 25L in a small bank as dicgc coverage is only upto 5L,u can make multiple fds for full coverage.

FD is safest option , please stick with it ... some banks offer 7% for FD , you can divide 5Lacs per bank to be utter safe . 

All other options are not safe . . . Some LIC polices have good returns , look into those .

I think you are talking about RBI Floating rate bonds? Only drawback is money is locked for 7 years. It allows premature redemption only for senior citizens and since the person is 50 years if she needs some money for emergency purpose, it won't be possible to get.  These bonds are also not eligible as collateral for loans from banks.


As others suggested go for multiple 5L FD (5 FDs of 1L each so easier to break if need arises in future) across different small finance banks like Equitas, AU, Jana etc

split the money into 5 lakh chunks into FD of different high interest paying banks/govt bodies; safety over making more money

Post office monthly scheme option can be explored, returns close to fd.

A part from emergency fund. Can opt for Post office MIS scheme. It has a limit: For an individual it is 4.5L and joint 9L. Reminder in bonds/fd's. A bit in Mutual funds. Keep in mind all these have lock in period so plan accordingly.

SBI offering 6.1% interest rate on FD for 1000 days (utsav deposit) For old age people this scheme is quite good and put this FD on monthly interest basic instead of yearly or quarterly

Honesty, when you are not sure it's safe for to stay with FD. You would get same return like debt fund...so avoid debt fund...you can see the data. There are some FD like on IND Money app which gives you 7 %. You can go with it Looking at her profile, take your decision based on safety not return.
