Investing in such products will not only reduce your tax amount but will also protect you in case of a medical emergency.

Look out for the diversity aspect

Your money-saving plan should not be restricted to one investment product. You will have to diversify the investment you make to reduce the risk associated with the same. Consider all the investment options, which serve your purpose and diversify the investment.

Performance of the plan

It is important to review your portfolio at least once in a year in order to make necessary changes as and when required. Once you make an investment, you should not simply forget about the same. Review the portfolio regularly and then take necessary action to maximize your profits.

Investment plans are complex as there are various terms and conditions attached to them. Hence, buy a plan only when you are well aware of what it is offering. Clear all the doubts about the plan before you put your money in it.
