Insurance is for protection against life and should not be considered as a tax saving instrument. Meanwhile, PPF is an instrument which only protects your money and earns the inflation rate. It is like running on a treadmill, there is a benefit but you are not moving ahead. You will manage inflation but not beat inflation.

Investing in flavor of the season financial instruments, namely gold and silver is a considered a smart choice by some. So is the decision to invest in FDs and PPF. Our studies indicate that an investment of Rs 100 in trusted financial instruments for 30 years would grow 22 times.

Stocks might have been beaten by the PPF over a 20-year period starting August 1994 but it only highlights why valuations are important.

By allowing additional tax benefit of Rs. 50000 under Section 80C of Income Tax Act and enhancing PPF investment limit to Rs.1.5 lakhs, the budget has given a clear message to the common investor which is if you have additional Rs. 50000 to be invested, please put this money in PPF.

declining. I propose to allow a Rs 3 lakh limit for section 80 C savings - which includes PF, NSCs, PPF, insurance premia, etc. I now propose to bring principal and interest payments for home loans also under this section.

Tax exemption should be Rs. 5 Lacs and investment in PPF and other instruments should be Rs. 2 Lacs. Considering inflation this should be fine.

One of the worst ideas.. Claim % comes down because of private player manipulation and insurance is for people in difficulty. No need to play with few institutions like LIC, PPF and others. Better leave them alone.
