The cost of education in India is increasing at a fast pace. From primary to secondary to higher education, parents are increasingly finding it difficult to meet the growing fee structure and other costs associated with education .

According to rough estimates, on an annual basis the education inflation is about 10-12 percent. Even by conservative estimate, if education cost inflation of 6 per cent a year is considered, then an engineering course that costs Rs 8 lakh at present will cost around Rs 20 lakh after 16 years. Similarly, an MBA course that costs around Rs 15 lakh would cost around Rs 50 lakh after 21 years.

Assuming an inflation rate of 6%, cost of Marriage after 25 years would be roughly 2.15 Crore. To achieve the same, he will be required to make investments worth Rs 12,500/- every month (expected return of 12% per annum).
