“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.

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.

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.

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.

Tokyo Olympics 2020 Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar enter semi finals.

Indian wrestler Ravi Kumar (57kg) and Deepak Punia (86kg) enjoyed fruitful outings at the Tokyo Olympic Games as they secured semifinal berths in their respective weight categories at the Makuhari Messe on Wednesday.

On the opening day of the wrestling competition, Ravi Kumar defeated Bulgaria's Georgi Vangelov 14-4 on technical superiority to reach the last-four in the men's 57kg category, while compatriot Deepak Punia overcame China's Zushen Lin 6-3 on points to advance to the semifinals.

Ravi Kumar will take on Nurislam Sanayev of Kazakhstan in the last-four, while Punia will be up against David Morris Taylor of the USA.

Earlier, Ravi Kumar had won his opening-round bout by technical superiority against Colombia's Oscar Tigreros to secure a quarterfinal spot. Competing in the Round-of-16 bout against the Colombian wrestler, the 23-year-old Ravi Kumar, who is making his Olympic debut, showed no nerves as he dominated the bout to win by technical superiority (13-2).

Ravi Kumar landed attack after attack and went 13-2 up, winning the bout by technical superiority with minutes to spare. In wrestling, building up a 10-point lead over the opponent results in a victory by technical superiority.

India's 86kg freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia showed no signs of the niggle that had forced him to pull out of the Poland Open Ranking Series in Warsaw in June, as he defeated Nigeria's Ekerekeme Agiomor on technical superiority to secure a quarterfinal berth.

He got his Olympic campaign to a fine start as he was in control from the start of the bout and hardly ever allowed his Nigerian opponent any room to maneuver his moves, finally winning with a 12-1 on technical superiority.

Punia, who had also suffered an elbow injury just before the Games, was slow at the start but came into his own as the bout progressed, inflicting takedowns at regular intervals to earn points.

The Indian wrestler eased into a 4-1 lead at the break and extended his lead comfortably in the second period.

Punia, the silver medallist from the 2019 world wrestling championships, then set up a clash with China's Lin Zushen in the quarterfinals and defeated him 6-3.
