Before starting my actual talk on tax saving let me share one small incident of my friend. My friend has purchased ULIP insurance policy in hurry for tax saving purpose. This ULIP policy was purchased before 2 year.
This insurance policy purchased in hurry at the end of year still could not give him good return. This could happen with you also.
Lesson Learned from above:-
(1) Don’t take any financial decision in hurry, always plan.
(2) Investment done without planning and knowledge can turn in to disaster.
(3) Carry out independent analysis before making any investment.
