FAQs

What should I enter as “current cost of education”?

Answer: - It depends on your child’s career plans. The costs of different under-graduate, post graduate and professional courses are available in the public domain. You should factor in accommodation and other living expenses, if your child studies in an institute outside his / her hometown.

What should I enter as “expected rate of return”?

Answer: - Entering the expected rate of return in child education plan calculator will depend on your risk appetite and investment tenure.

What should I enter as “rate of inflation”?

Answer: - Historical data on inflation in education costs indicate education costs increase at faster rate than CPI inflation.

You can then calculate the CAGR and assume it to be inflation rate. Historical data shows that education cost inflation is in double digits (around 10%).
