I have recently got the opportunity to write occasional articles in the Economic Times and Moneycontrol, and I wanted to use this post to highlight some of the articles I have written there as well as create a place where I can link to all posts that I write outside of OneMint – be it a media publication or another blog.
Here are my articles in the media and other blogs.
Six tax goof-ups that planning can help avoid:Â This is an article that highlights 6 points you should keep in mind while planning investments for your 80C or other deductions. It addresses things like expenses you may have already incurred that are eligible for tax deduction, and lock – in periods that should be a factor while considering any investing decision.
Which is a better investment? Tax-Free Bonds or FDs:Â Investors are often seen confused when it comes to choosing between Tax free Bonds and Fixed Deposits. Choosing one between the two largely depends on investorâ€™s goal as pros and cons exist in both the products. Read this space to know what factors differentiate these two fixed income instruments to take better investment decision.
When should you invest in mutual fund NFOs?:Â Â NFO is often confused with IPO of a share where investors invest presuming they are buying cheap. The fund houses also do a great marketing job to sell their NFOs. Hence before investing, it is important to check if the NFO offered is offering some thing new or if something similar already exists with the Fund house.
DTC effects on ELSS Funds:Â Once the DTC kicks in ELSS will lose its tax benefit. This has raised concerns among investors who are already invested or wish to invest in ELSS. While some of the concerns are genuine, others show that the product is simply misunderstood.
On other blogs.Â
RGESS and the tail wagging the dog:Â Some thoughts on this new scheme, and how it shows a common problem with the way we think about our investments.
This is not a complete list and I have written so much on other blogs over the years that it will take some time to get the complete list, and I will update this post as soon as I write a new post any place.
