There are now unit linked pension plans as well as annuity plans exclusively designed to make sure that your life post-retirement is exactly as you had always imagined.
Most of these plans invest some part of your premiums in debt or equity funds of your choice to help you generate higher returns. Apart from the returns which can be received as a lump sum or regular income, you also receive the security of life insurance with these plans.
3. Mutual FundsMutual funds are currently one of the most popular investment options in India. There are now regular income plans solely for people who want to receive a steady income from their investment.
