Module 1 Example : Salaried Person With HomeLoan

Let’s Take an Example of a Salaried Person who gets Monthly Take Home salary Rs. 50,000/-

Income : Rs. 50,000/-

A. Debts [60%] : Rs. 30,000 /-

This includes all your Liabilities such as Home Loan, Personal Loan, Rent etc.

This amount should Not Exceed 60% of Monthly Take Home salary i.e. Rs. 30,000 /-

So, Now We are Left with [40% of Monthly Take Home salary] i.e. Rs. 20,000 /-

Split this amount into your Monthly Expense and Savings Equally.

B. Expense [20%] : Rs. 10,000 /- 

We can’t escape from our Monthly Expenses and these vary month to month. But if we could limit the amount to 20% of Monthly Take Home salary then we could achieve our Saving Goal.

  • Glossary, Fruits & Vegetables, etc : Rs. 3,000 /-
  • Bills & Recharges : Rs 3,000 /-
  • Weekly Expense [Rs. 500 each week] : Rs. 2,000 /-
  • Weekend Expense [Rs. 500 each week] : Rs 2,000 /-

C. Savings [20%] : Rs. 10,000 /- 

This is a chunk of Money we want to save Every Month. More Saving % is always better.

  • Mutual Fund : 10%  –>  Rs. 5,000/-
  • PPF : 2 % –> Rs. 1000 /-
  • LIC : 4 % –> Rs. 2,000 /- { If you are paying LIC Premium Annually then Open Monthly Recurring Deposit }
  • Shopping Saving 4%  –> Rs. 2,000 /- [It is advisable to do saving first and then shopping
