Ulips meaning is to provide wealth creation along with an insurance cover where the insurer invests a portion of your money towards life insurance and the rest in a fund which matches your long term goals such as Retirement planning. 

“Retirement is when you stop living at work, and start working at living.”

Early Planning for your Retirement is one of the wisest things to do. After all, you wouldn’t want to be dependent on anybody to meet your basic financial needs. Efficient planning at an early age can help you fulfill your dreams that you had possibly forgotten. For instance, you could go on a world tour with your significant other once you hang your boots. Or if you have kids who are dependent on you, a retirement corpus will come handy for their higher education or in prestigious events such as their marriage.


Saving money to fund a comfortable and worry-free retirement is perhaps the biggest reason people invest. Finding the perfect balance between risk and investment return is key to a successful retirement savings strategy.

What Is A Ulip?

A Unit Linked Insurance Plan is a mix of insurance and investment. When you invest in ULIP (Unit Linked Insurance Plan), the insurance company invests a part of the premium in shares/bonds, and the insurer utilises the balance amount in providing an insurance cover. Ulips meaning is to provide wealth creation along with an insurance cover where the insurer invests a portion of your money towards life insurance and the rest in a fund which matches your long term goals such as retirement planning.

Why should you consider Low Cost Ulips for Retirement?

You can invest in a ULIPs, which is a low-cost, long-term investment alternative to strengthen your retirement plans. It’s a type of a pension scheme that combines both insurance and investment. It’s a way to invest in market-linked pension products, which yield high returns.

  • Higher Returns

Ulips offer higher returns on your investment, from which you can build a significant corpus by the time you retire, giving you the much needed financial support that one requires in their old age. Therefore, it is suggested to start planning and investing as early as possible, which will result in a considerable sum by the time you retire.

  • Top-Up Option

You are 30, and you decide to buy a ULIP. After a few years, your income has grown substantially, and you want to invest this surplus somewhere. So what’s better than adding it to your retirement corpus—an option only available in ULIPs. Unlike in the traditional pension plans, your insurers allow you to increase your investment in a ULIP pension plan, thus assuring you a higher return by the time you retire.

  • Tax Benefits

The premium payable on ULIPs is eligible for a tax deduction under Section 80C upto a maximum of Rs 1.5 lakhs in a financial year. Moreover, the amount you receive on maturity is tax exempt under Section 10(10D).

Under ULIPs, the key is always to keep the policy going for a longer time horizon to reap the best out of it. If your financial goal is wealth creation and you want to save funds for retirement, ULIP is one of the best options available.

Once you identify your financial goal and the type of ULIP that will help you achieve it, the next step would be to compare the ULIP products in the market. Look for comparison in the form of background expenses, premium payments and ULIP performance. Also, investigate the nature of funds that the ULIPs invest in to ascertain the returns from investments in the particular ULIP.

The lock-in period for ULIPs is five years. The long lock-in period ensures a significant corpus for your long term goals. ULIPs from reputable insurers such as Max Life Insurance provide various options for retirement that allow you to choose your premium amount based on your risk appetite.

Bangladesh over the years show that the state has failed in its duty to protect minorities

By- Salil Gewali

If humanity is hurt, God is hurt.

Religion without compassion might give way to hatred. Compassion with a "self-interest" motive is completely irreligious. But of late, some of the religions have departed from those basic human values. Love and compassion are for only those who follow their "specific" faith. Very sadly, the religions are up as trading commodities in the world of proselytization. Better preachers attract more followers. Of course, no issue if they are not vying for their religious "supremacy". But the ground reality is utterly different. The claim for exclusive supremacy has become the first commandment --- a real bone of contention among the existing religions. In the name of religion, we have polluted our minds. we have corrupted our souls. We have also gone so much astray that God must have now shut his gateway to heaven!

Milky Way galaxy as seen from Chitkul Valley

NASA's Chandra X-ray Observatory has for the first time spotted signs of a planet transiting a star outside of the Milky Way galaxy, opening up a new avenue to search for exoplanets at greater distances than ever before.

The possible exoplanet -- or planets outside of our Solar System -- candidate is located in the spiral galaxy Messier 51 (M51), also called the Whirlpool Galaxy because of its distinctive profile, NASA said in a statement.

Astronomers have, so far, found all other known exoplanets and exoplanet candidates in the Milky Way galaxy, almost all of them less than about 3,000 light-years from Earth.

An exoplanet in M51 would be about 28 million light-years away, meaning it would be thousands of times farther away than those in the Milky Way, NASA said.

"We are trying to open up a whole new arena for finding other worlds by searching for planet candidates at X-ray wavelengths, a strategy that makes it possible to discover them in other galaxies," said Rosanne Di Stefano of the Center for Astrophysics at Harvard and Smithsonian (CfA) in Cambridge, Massachusetts, who led the study.

The findings are published in the journal Nature Astronomy.

The exoplanet candidate was spotted in a binary system called M51-ULS-1, located in M51. This binary system contains a black hole or neutron star orbiting a companion star with a mass about 20 times that of the Sun. The X-ray transit they found using Chandra data lasted about three hours, during which the X-ray emission decreased to zero.

Based on this and other information, the team estimates the exoplanet candidate in M51-ULS-1 would be roughly the size of Saturn and orbit the neutron star or black hole at about twice the distance of Saturn from the Sun.

The team looked for X-ray transits in three galaxies beyond the Milky Way galaxy, using both Chandra and the European Space Agency's XMM-Newton. Their search covered 55 systems in M51, 64 systems in Messier 101 (the "Pinwheel" galaxy), and 119 systems in Messier 104 (the "Sombrero" galaxy).

However, more data would be needed to verify the interpretation as an extragalactic exoplanet. One challenge is that the planet candidate's large orbit means it would not cross in front of its binary partner again for about 70 years, thwarting any attempts for a confirming observation for decades, NASA said.

Named in honor of the late Indian-American Nobel laureate, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, the Chandra X-ray Observatory is the world's most powerful X-ray telescope. It has eight times greater resolution and is able to detect sources more than 20-times fainter than any previous X-ray telescope.

Known to the world as Chandra (which means "moon" or "luminous" in Sanskrit), Chandrasekhar was widely regarded as one of the foremost astrophysicists of the twentieth century. (IANS/JB)
