        Amount, % of Total, Indicative Returns and Volatility are given ,
        How to calculate Max. Return , Min return, Max PF Return, Min PF Return.

        hello sir,

      • R Varadarajan said

        In the case of normal distribution, 99% of the observations will lie between Arithmetic Mean+/- 3 Standard deviation. Hence the Minimum Return & Maximun Return of the security would be ( Mean- 3 Std Deviation) & ( Mean + Standard Deviation). Once we know the Mean and Standard deviation of the PF we can arrive at the Min & Max Return of the Portfolio, as well. Had the actual figures been given, the answer could have been worked out.

    Sir,i m appearing for final module on 28th.Please help me for postal savings rate scheme specially ppf.how should i calculate the interest rate.as there in change 8 to 8.6 and now 8.8

    • Dear Jyoti,
      I have already posted the new rates on this site. Rates declared on 1st April, 2012 are not applicable in our current exams. Hence consider the rates declared on 1st December 2011 as applicable for all the FPSB exams.

      Best luck and regards,
      Prashant V Shah.

      • JYOTI LOHANA said

        thanks a lot.I have a query in ravindra case study.why there is a surcharge applicable in calculating the tax liability.ravindra question1.Please quide me.

        Thanks,
        jyoti

      • Vinayak said

        Dear Jyoti,

        During that relevant assessment year, as per the tax rates, surcharge was applicable @10% if taxable income exceeded Rs.10,00,000 /- . For AY 12-13, surcharge is not applicable.

        Vinayak

  13. JYOTI LOHANA said

    Sir,
    thanks a lot……..

  14. JYOTI LOHANA said

    Hello Sir,
    I want to know about ppf interest rate.in exam i should calclate interest rate 8.6% from dec 2011 & till dec 8.0%,or from begining 8.6%.
    i m confuse about that.please help me.

    • Dear Jyoti,

      For investment made within a period which is from 1st April,2011 to 30th November,2011 the applicable rate is 8%. And for innvestments made after 1st December,2011, it is 8.6% for our examination.
      Investment limit has also been increased from 70000 to 100000 from 1st December,2011.
      For the cases like,
      Invested maximum amount on 1st April 2011 and invested additional 30000 on 1st December, the above calculation should be applied. I.e. 8% interest to be calculated on 70000 for 8 months and 8.6% to be applied on 100000 for 4 months.

      Nowadays such questions are asked in exam.

      Vinayak did you have any similar kind of question in your exam?

      Regards,
      Prashant.

      • Vinayak said

        Dear Prashant,

        Surprisingly, I did not have any questions on PPF in my exam. I had really prepared well for the PPF questions and expected at least one five marker.

        Best regards

        Vinayak

    • Mohan said

      Hi Manish im appearing Risk insurance module this month I would like to know advice for clearing this module Im gladful any suggestions from your end.

      • Hi Mohan,

        Those who have appeared in this exam have suggested that similar questions have been asked which are posted on this site. Sample paper and additional sample paper are equally important.
        General insurance is slightly at risk. But getting through is not tough.
        There is 20% weight of IFP. Its a great cushion.

        Regards,
        Prashant

  26. Sandhya Trivedi said

    thanks Manish,

    But can i get questions for the 2011 cases. or I will have to just work out ques on probability basis.

    one more query – can 80C deduction be claimed for investment in NSC in minor child’s name

    • Vinayak said

      Dear Sandhya,

      The facts are like these: FPSB India has uploaded 6 cases on their website currently which are 1. Ashwin Agarwal 2. Mahesh and Neelam Desai 3. Sahanubhuti Vanaspati 4. Gurpreet Das 5. Sanjay and 6. Sachin Dev. For your AFP exam , you will be given any two of these cases and questions will be asked on these cases. There are no questions available for these cases since these are current cases for the exam. For practice, you should rely on the cases of 2009 and 2010 which are available alongwith the solutions in this blog and elsewhere. Practice these properly and understand the concepts thoroughly. You will then be in a position to tackle any question. Lay stress on corpus calculations, capital gains , gold etf, portfolio rebalancing etc.

      All the Best

      Regards

      Vinayak

      • Sandhya Trivedi said

        thanks Vinayak. I am having my exam on 10th Sept. I have already done around 20 cases. However, I always end up making some mistakes (either silly mistakes or concept is new). this is especially true in corpus based ques. so i am not getting the confidence yet. As time is short should I focus on doing more and more case studies or should spend time on brushing up my basics from previous modules.

      • Vinayak said

        Dear Sandhya,

        Please don’t get hassled. Everybody makes some silly mistakes ( especially true in corpus calculations). The trick is to be very alert and vigilant whille solving these as a small mistake somewhere will derail you. So concentrate fully and have confidence in yourself. As far as concepts are concerned, if your TVM concepts are clear then there is no problem. I will advise you to revise the case studies of sep, oct, nov and dec of 2009 and all cases of 2010 ( jan to april) thoroughly. Just focus on these and on capital gains ( res prop and buy back of shares), gold etf. ppf and portfolio rebalancing.

        All the Best.

        Vinayak

  27. dear sandhya u can get the questions in these links or in this blog and regarding 80c deduction there is a lot of confusion and rebate going around but i m getting the mixed response letz see wht prashant sir says abt this.

  28. Manish said

    dear sandhya u can get the questions in these links or in this blog and regarding 80c deduction in minor child’s name i m also having the same query bcoz i m getting the mixed response letz see wht prashant sir says abt this?

  29. Sandhya Trivedi said

    Dear Vinayak/Manish/Prashant,

    I am writing my final exam on Monday. I have few quick questions and would be great if you could help me out on this:

    • Is surrender of ulip taxable
    • Any limit on topup on ulip schemes
    • PPF-differential rates applicable
    • How many investments PPF – yrly & mthly
    • Finally can you pl teach me with an example of PPF showing (it’s really confusing):
    1. Yr of maturity
    2. Year when loan allowed and max amt
    3. Year when withdrawal is allowed and max amt

    Please help me out on this. Thanks a ton in advance.

    • Vinayak said

      Dear Sandhya,

      I will try to address as many questions of yours as follows:

      1. Top up premium is usually limited to 25% of the premiums paid.
      2. Rates of PPF are as declared by the Govt. The interest is calculated on monthly basis. For example the rate was 8.6% from 01 Dec 2011 to 31.03.2012. From
      01.04.2012, it has been revised to 8.8%.
      3. The investments in PPF are limited to max 12 instalments in a year. The max amount per year is currently Rs.1,00,000.
      4. Example of PPF:

      Let’s assume account is opened on 30 march 2001 with Rs. 50000 and lets assume the following balances:
      31 March 2001: 50000 ( FY 00-01)
      31 March 2002: 75000 ( FY 01-02)
      31 march 2003:100000 ( FY 02-03)
      31 march 2004: 125000 ( FY 03-04)
      31 March 2005: 150000 ( FY 04-05)
      31 March 2006: 175000 ( FY 05-06)
      31 March 2007: 200000 ( FY 07-08) etc.

      Now, the maturity of this PPF account is 01 April 2016. Remember that you can have 16 yearly instalments till maturity.
      Loan is allowed from the third financial year onwards i.e. from 01 April 2002. The amount of loan is 25% of the amount outstanding at the end of the second preceding year. In this case, the amount is 25% of Rs.50,000.
      Withdrawal is allowed from seventh financial year onwards i.e. from 01 April 2007. Max amount is 50% of amount outstanding at the end of the preceding year or end of the fourth preceding year, whichever is less. In this case, the max loan amount is lesser of 50% of 175000( 31 March 2006) or 50% of 100000 ( 31 March 2003) i.e Rs. 50000.

      All the best.

      Vinayak

      • Sandhya Trivedi said

        Thanks a ton Vinayak for your prompt reply. Just one more querry – in case of PPF – there is limit for max no of monthly investments allowed as well. Could please confirm that

      • Vinayak said

        Dear Sandhya,

        Max instalments are 12 in a year. You can make more than one instalment in a month also but total number of instalments in a year should not exceed 12.

        Vinayak

      • ULIP policies have new rules now which say that top-up without increase in sum assured is not allowed. Older policies can still accept the top-up to the extent of 25% of the premium paid without increasing sum assured. The maximum chares which can be levied have also changed for new policies. Probably thats the reason why FPSB is not asking question of Ulip in final exam any more.

        Regards,
        Prashant.

    • nayan luhana said

      Dear Sandhya
      Can you please tell me which 2 case studies was there and mostly which type of question was there?

      • sandhya said

        I got the first two cases. Ashwin agarwal n gurpreet das. the pattern of the questions in both the cases were.more or less the same.

        there were 3 corpus based questions for each case one on retirement and two on marriage. surprisingly nothing on education.

        one question each on Ppf. the second Ppf question was tricky. they had given different rates and also enhancing the investment to the new investment limit in the month of Jan 2011. such question needs a little patience.

        focus on capital gain tax rates. there was a question on buyback of shares after rights bonus and split of shares.

        read the theory questions of all the previous cases. few repeat so u can easily score two marks in that. read the code of ethics thoroughly.

        there was one question for home loans. it gave the breakup for disbursements of installments by the bank. instead of asking the final emi it asked the sec 24b and sec 80c deduction. seemed tricky but there was no need of any calculation. the construction has got completed in that yr only so there will no deduction allowed under sec 24. there was only one option will nil for sec 24 deduction. so u get 5 marks without any calculation.

        just look out tricky ones like these. also as vinayak has mentioned in the previous posts, I focused only on cases from Sep 09 to Apr 10.

        just understand the logic right and you will be able to tackle any question.

        best of luck and if I remember anything else will let u know.

    • Nayan Luhana said

      Sundhakar the First case sudy was-Sahanubhuti and Second case study was-Mahesh desai. Question mostly was there on tvm but tricky. Please don’t do practice in excel but practice in open office spreadsheet. one of the reason was this also that i have done practice in excel so it was difficult for me to use open office so please do more practice on open office spreadsheet for tvm some.

        Hi
        Happy new year
        I have cleared my final module exam on 4th Jan (fri) i like to share my views form the exam point.
        cases i got Gurpreet Das & Sahanubhuti Vanaspati.

        Case Gurpreet Das (easy questions 2,3 marks came from what we discussed and form IIFP workbook.)

        i got a theory ques in 3 mark from reverse mortgage with confusing ans options & 4marks was a simple sip cal and other was a cal of tax adjusted internal rate of return by giving 10% rate nominal com quater inflation given for 500 days bonds (for whole period mentioned)given in the middle of the ques thinking most of us will take the infla as it is and end up with wrong ans which is there in the ans options.

        5marks

        1 st was a reallocation in equity 40% MF 40% debt 20% easy sum sure marks not to be missed
        2 nd in retirement corpus finding short fall or surplus (easy)
        3 rd in taxation finding deductions under sec 24 and 80C.
        4 th in clubbing marriage and higher edu find the sip till a particular age.

        over all its a easy case to score marks.

        case 2 Sahanubhuti Vanaspati.

        2,3 marks were little confusing from options, jensen alpha tricky ethics ques read the question twice and then answer

        4 mark
        1st in life insurance cover with factoring all exp on education , marriage and loans. (sample 2 last que format)
        2 nd sale of gold jwellery and gold etf and find the tax liability. with and without indexation which ever less.

        5 marks (tough in the way he asks the questions)

        question format was what we have worked but he adds some more info and ans options we very close

        eg: fund for retirement corpus from today till retirement.
        the que is vanaspati want 60000 p.m of exp post retire infla adu and want to fund for charity 1cr at the age 70yrs and 1cr bequeath posthumously. for this he want to fund starting from today till retirement through
        debt invest 12000 amt till retirement
        use PPF with further inv after maturity inv in liquid
        use the present Equity MF amt and the sip he is continuing

        What is the SIP he need to top up to bridge the gap of retirement value corpus at retirement starting immediately.

        2 nd ques was like accumulation/switch the same pattern as in sample two question

        3 was a tax ques finding the tax liability the ques was too length with lot of info very confusy left it.

        over all case 2 was a stress buster first case i finished in 1 hr 40 min second case 2 hrs 10 min was not enough.

        Regards
        Sudhakar.

  36. manish said

    Dear prashant sir today i attempted tax exam u dont believe tht but i got 83 marks fall short of 1 mark it really hurts bcoz i was just too close to my destiny.the reason for failure is that i choose open office instead of financial calculator the paper was quite tricky but it is tolerable the only area where i fell down down is bcoz of slow speed which was caused by open office error dialog box tht easily takes away my precious time.would like to hear ur advice regarding this.

    • Dear Manish,
      It is really unfotunate to score 83 marks. In 2012 I have seen many students scoring the same. I dont know the reason behind. I have not said on the site but it is not advisable to use open office for basic modules. Financial calculator is always a better idea. Now be prepared to score A grade and i believe that you destined for that. All the best.

      Regards,
      Prashant.

      • manish said

        Dear prashant sir thanks for ur encouraging words this will definetly boost me up now i will do more practise with the help of a calculator n i surely try my best to score A grade thank u again.

      • Vinayak said

        I agree with Prashant sir. I can tell you from personal experience that its always better to use financial calculator as much as possible in the exams. Its quick and efficient. Use excel/open office only for those problems which cannot be solved by calculator like XIRR, ULIP calculations etc.

        Regards

        Vinayak

    • Dear Manish,

      Yes the course is changing from 1st february but the content on the site are in line the new course.
      According to me the exam pattern is changing but the content of the curriculum is almost same as we have now.

      And yes unfortunately FPSB has never published any study material.

  52. R Varadarajan said

    Dear Prashant,
    As i had posted elsewhere I had cleared the Tax Planning paper which I took up first, on the 11th with B grade.In fact two or three were from the question bank in your block- without any change. Thanks for your guidance and your effort to strengthen the CFPs in the country.
    Now I am planning to take up Investment planning before the end of the month. I have prepared and is preparing for the same. Please could I have some guidance. Incidentally, I got two questions on Liquid Asset Ratio of Individuals with the data on their Bank Deposits, MF, House, Annual Expenses and EMIs on Car/Home Loans. Please could you throw some light on these. Thanks.

    R Varadarajan

    • Manish said

      Dear R Varadarajan liquid asset ratio or basic liquidity ratio are very important in tracking the liquidity enjoyed by the client.letz assume u have the following liquid assets & monthly expenses:-

      Liquid assets:

      1.]cash on hand -10000
      2.]bank deposits-6000
      3.]money market mutual fund-20000

      total Liquid assets-36000

      Annual exps

      1.]interest expense-5000
      2.]real estate taxes-6000
      3.]living exp-59000

      total annual exps-70000
      monthly exps-5833.

      liquid asset ratio=liquid assets/monthly expenses
      =36000/5833=6.17
      6.17 is the number which indicates the number of months their Liquid assets could support the client.a target of 3-4 would seem to be reasonable.

      • R Varadarajan said

        Thanks Manish for your clarifications. I did not know this calculation at all.although I have an idea of the liquid assets. Had I known this I could have got 6 more marks, as these problems are simple.Perhaps, those appearing for the TP paper should note this!!

      • R Varadarajan said

        Dear Prashant/ Manish, Can you please help me to solve the following problems.
        1.ABC Ltd earnings for the previous year Rs.45 per share Its return on equity 20% & retains 50% of the earnings( both figures are expected to be maintained indefenitely). Stocks of similar rist are prices to return 15%. What is the intrinsic value of ABC stock?
        Answer ( a ) 566, ( b ) 495 ( c ) 580 & ( d ) 450.
        2. Calculate the modified duration of a bond with FV Rs.- 100,Coupon Rate – 9%, Term to Maturity – 8 Yrs & Mkt Price – Rs.92
        Answer : ( a ) 5.58 yrs ( b ) 4.12 Yrs ( c ) 3.78 Yrs & ( d ) 6.78 Yrs

        Thanks

        R Varadarajan

    • Manish said

      Dear R Varadarajan even i forgot the formula of finding this ratio so i would like to thank u for bringing up this question and u rightly said that one should note or be aware of these kinda topics before attempting any examz thats why fpsb has created the 1st module introduction to fp so that u can refer this book everytime regardless of how many times u have read it before.

      • Manish said

        Dear R varadarajan i m not sure about 1st one and in second one my answer comes to 7.23 yrs after calculating the ytm of 10.53% we need to confirm this from prashant sir as i m also preparing investment so i also need a guidance along with u.

      • R Varadarajan said

        Good to hear that you are also preparing for IP. In case you have any sample questions or tips please could you send them. we now require the guidance from Mr Prashant Shah for some of these questions.

      • Vinayak said

        Dear Varadarajan/Manish,

        The solution to the first question is as follows:
        First calculate growth rate ‘g’ = Return on equity * retention ratio = 20%*50% = 0.10
        Now, return required = 15% = K
        Dividend D1 = Earnings X ( 1+growth rate) X payout ratio = 45 *1.10*0.50 = 24.75
        Use the formula to calculate the intrinsic value.
        Intrinsic Value = D1/(K-g) = 24.75/0.05 = 495

        Vinayak

      • Dear Vinayak,

        Nice to see you after a long time.

        Thanks for the help.

        Prashant.

    • Manish said

      Dear r varadarajan sorry in question no :-2 first we need to calculate the maculay duration by taking the yield of 10.53% maculay duration comes to 5.94 yrs after that calculate the modified duration with the help of formula modified duration=maculay duration/(1+ytm/f)=5.38.you can grab this formulas and tips from investment planning section.

      • Manish said

        Dear vinayak thank u so much for the solution.

      • Dear Manish,

        Ans is Absolutely prefect.

        Some students have said that current exams of IP have questions on duration and modified duration.
        I will publish a post on the said topics soon.

Please can you let me know how the syllabus has changed in past few years (have notes of 2010). Am thinking to give Retirement Planning 1st. Also have heard after completion of MBA i can directly give the final module ( have 3.3yrs of work exp in investment bank). Please let me know how to approach in clearing the CFP exams.

    Many Thanks.

  55. Nilesh said

    Dear Prashant / Members,

    I’ve following query. I’m not getting the logic how they have arrived to the solution.

    Mr. Rajan’s investment portfolio comprises Rs.2 lakh in equity, Rs.5 lakh in debt and Rs. 1 lakh in his bank current account.
    Over one year the returns on equity and debt are 5% and 12%. At the end of the year to maintain his current asset
    allocation, he needs to ________

    Ans. He needs move Rs.7500/- to equity from debt and Rs. 8750/-to cash from debt

    Awaiting for your eariest response.

    Regards
    Nilesh

    • Dear Nilesh,

      You may get the solution soon.
      Request you to not to post you mail address for any futher queries.

      Regards,
      Prashant V Shah.

    • R Varadarajan said

      Hi Nilesh, here is the solution. The concept is that the intial asset allocation ratio should be maintained after one year
      Opg Amount Percentage Return Closing Bal Amount Reqd Amount s
      After Return for same % to be Trfd
      Equity 200000 25% 5% 210000 (25%) 217500 + 7500
      Debt 500000 62.5% 12% 560000 ( 62.5%) 543750 – 16250
      Bank C. A 100000 12.5% 0 100000 ( 12.5%) 108750 + 8750
      Total 800000 100.% 870000 870000

      Since Bank Current account does not receive any interest the closing balance would be the same as the opening balance. With the total amount of 870000 ( as against 800000 in the beginning of the year), the distribution in the same pecentage (25%, 62.5% &12.5%) would result in adjustment of the balances in these asset class. Hence Rs.16250 would be taken out of debt and transferred to Equity ( 7500) and Debt ( 8750)
      Trust this clarifies the position.

      R Varadarajan

      • R Varadarajan said

        It appears that the columns are not displayed correctly. Hence I am giving the details again

        Equity of Rs.2.00 Lakhs form 25% of total amount of 8.00 Lakh. After one year with the return of 5% it would be 200000+10000 = 210000
        Similarly Debt of 5.00 Lakhs is 62.5% of 8 lakhs. After one year with the return of 12% , it would be
        500000+60000 = 560000.
        The current account bal of Rs.1.00 Lakh forms 12.5% of 8.00 Lakh, and would remain the same as the Bank current account does not get any interst. ( in fact there would be service charges, which is ignored)
        After one year, the total would be 870000( 210000+560000+100000). To maintain the same percentage of 25%,62.5%& 12.5%, the amount in these heads should be 217500, 543750 &108750. To acheive this, he has to transfer Rs.16250 fro Debt fund to Equity ( 7500 ) and Current a/c ( 8750 ).

    Hi Prashant Sir,

    FPSB has changed the paper pattern from 1st Feb. I need to give my Retirement paper. Can u pls advice as to the topics that I should focus on and how different will the syllabus be when compared with the earlier one. Hv gone thru the sample pattern but wud appreciate if you could explain in detail pls.

    Thnx
    Geeta

    • Dear Geeta,

      As far as the retirement planning portion concerned there is no change except introduction of reverse mortgage in curriculum.
      In employee benefit part there was a change in EDLI, which is already updated on site.
      Sample paper on RPEB is also available on site.

      The difference which we may observe will be in terms of coverage. We may expect FPSB to cover 75% to 80% of stated curriculum to be in the exam. Hence only TVM may not rescue in the exam (my expectation).

      Other than these there is no great change.

      Regards,
      Prashant V Shah.

      • R Varadarajan said

        Dear Prashantji,

        Thanks for the clarification on the curriculum. Please could you give us a brief on the ” Reverse Mortgage” which is being included and also one or two sample probles with workings to enable us understand the concept fully. I will also be appearing for the RPEB exams in February and your guidance is gratefully awaited.

        Thanks
        R Varadarajan

    • R Varadarajan said

      Dear Geeta,
      I recently appeared for the RPEB exam in after the revision and missed the same by a whisker ( scored 86 against the requirement of 90). There will be 77 questions with total marks of 150 ( instead of 75 questions and 140 marks). There are 1,2 3 & 4 marks questions as outlined in the sample paper. The most important thing is that all the 4 marks questions and some of the 3 marks questions are extremely tough and you should be thorough and also very fast, since these would take much longer time in view of the mumerous calculations involved. I used the calculator without realsing the gravity of the situation. But I think that if you are conversant with the open office and use that in the Open Office the process of calculation and rechecking/correction would be easier to save time. Best of Luck

        b. Rs. 966.67 & 15.59%
        c. Rs950 & 14.42%
        d. Rs.900 & 13.5%
        Solution B
        Value of a perpetual bond = pmt / I = 145/15% = 966.67; YTM = 145/930 = 15.59%
        Perpetual P.V. = Pmt /rate YTM= Pmt/ p.v

        17. Given a) Personal consumption of goods & services = 150 Billion, B) Government expenditure = 70 billion C) Private sector fixed capital expenditure = 50 billion D) Export receipts = 75 billion E) Import expenditure = 80 billion. What will be the value of GDP?

        c. 6.143%
        d. Nil

        Solution A
        7.5 / 105 = 0.0714285 X 100 = 7.143
        88. The current yield of a bond with coupon rate of 11.5% is 10.773%. How much
        is the price of this bond.
        a.. 100
        b. 106.75
        c. 107.76

        14) Ajay and Bela Mahera have two children ages 5 and 7. The Mehera.s want to start
        saving for their children.s education. Each child will spend 6 years at college and will
        begin at age 18. College currently costs Rs. 20000 per year and is expected to increase at
        6% per year. Assuming the Mahera.s can earn an annual compound return of 12% and
        inflation is 4%, how much must the Mehera.s deposit at the end of each year to pay for
        their children.s educational requirements until the youngest is out of school? Assume that
        educational expenses are withdrawn at the beginning of each year and that the last deposit
        will be made at the beginning of the last year of the younger child.s college education.
        A Rs. 15230
        B Rs. 14,989
        C Rs. 12,386
        D None of the above
        Solution: Step 1) Calculate the Inflation adjusted present value of tuition expenses for
        both children using Cash Mode: Inflation adjusted return = ((1.12/1.06)-1)*100 = 5.66
        D.Editor x-
        1: 0, 2: 0, 3: 0, 4: 0, 5: 0, 6: 0, 7: 0, 8: 0, 9: 0, 10: 0, 11: 0, 12: 20000, 13: 20000, 14:
        40000, 15: 40000, 16: 40000, 17: 40000, 18: 20000, 19: 200000.
        NPV = 108657.86
        Step 2) So the present value of the education is 108657.86. The sum of money needed to
        be invested at end of each year until the youngest child is out of school:
        End Mode: PV = 108657.86, I = 12, N = 18, PMT = -14989
        5) Vinita was recently divorced and has two children. The divorce decree requires that
        she pay 1/3 of the college tuition cost for her children. The tuition cost is currently Rs.
        15,000 per year and has been increasing at 7% per year. Her son and daughter are 12 and
        16 respectively and will attend college for four years beginning at age 18. How much
        should she save each month, beginning today for the next five years to finance education
        for both the children (in nearest rupee)? Assume that her after-tax rate of return will be
        9% and that general inflation has been 4% p.a.
        A) Rs. 750
        B) Rs. 745
        C) Rs. 2,235
        D) Rs. 2,500
        Solution: Step 1) Tuition Cost for each child for Vinita = Rs 5000.
        Calculate the Inflation adjusted present value of tuition expenses for both children using
        Cash Mode: Inflation adjusted = ((1.9/1.07)-1)*100 = 1.869
        D.Editor x-
        1: 0, 2: 0, 3: 5000, 4: 5000, 5: 5000, 6: 5000, 7: 5000, 8: 5000, 9: 5000, 10: 5000.
        NPV = 36158.96027 because son 6 year collage will begin age 18 for four year so 6+4=10 for son +four year
        Step 2) so the present value of the education cost is 36158.96. The sum of money needed
        to be invested monthly in begin mode until the youngest child is out of school:
        Begin Mode: PV = 36158.96027, I = 9/12, N = 5*12,
        PMT = -745
        10) A client purchased a zero coupon bond 6.5 years ago for Rs. 525. If the bond matures today and the face value is Rs. 1,000, what is the average annual compound rate of return (calculated semi-annually) that the client realised on her investments? – Marks : 4
        10.40%
        5.08%
        11.34%
        10.16%
        Correct answer

    sir ,in FPSB’S 5 CS CASE-A TO CASE-F,am facing problem to decide that in assets list insurance policies are also ..dn how will we calculate PV for NET WORTH questions.either we will consider it as SUM ASSURED OR VALUE ON THAT PARTICULAR DATE.PLZ Help me my exam is on 20 march 2013

    • R Varadarajan said

      With regard to the Networth calculation, we have to take only the either paid up or surrender value and not the Surrender Value in the case of endowment or ULIP Policies, based on the Premiums paid. In the case of Term Policy, they are actually Contingent Assets and cannot be included in the Asset at all

    Hi Prashant
    I am preparing for exam 5, just wanted to know about the cases applicable (where do i see them, what freaquency do they change at,etc.) if i appear sometime in may-june 2013.

    Hi!
    I’ve already cleared the first four modules but I’m finding it difficult to prepare for the fifth (advance FP) module. Do you have anymore case studies that would help? I’ve solved a few but not really confident to take the test anytime soon. Any tips to prepare for the final module??

    Sameer bought his house on 01/04/2007 for Rs. 35 lakh and took a housing loan from a bank for Rs.21.48 lakh at that time. He told you that he is planning to sell out his house at current market valuation and he would shift in Urvi’s house and invest the sales proceeds. Before doing that he wants to know the tax treatment of this transaction. According to you the same is ______.

    solution as per fpsb
    Loan amount 2148000
    Purchase Price of the house= 3500000
    Sell Price= 5000000
    Short Term Capital Gain= 1500000

    1 4598 PPMT(7.75%/12,1,18*12,-2148000,0)
    2 4628 PPMT(7.75%/12,2,18*12,-2148000,0)
    3 4658 PPMT(7.75%/12,3,18*12,-2148000,0)
    4 4688 PPMT(7.75%/12,4,18*12,-2148000,0)
    5 4718 PPMT(7.75%/12,5,18*12,-2148000,0)
    6 4749 PPMT(7.75%/12,6,18*12,-2148000,0)
    7 4779 PPMT(7.75%/12,7,18*12,-2148000,0)
    8 4810 PPMT(7.75%/12,8,18*12,-2148000,0)
    9 4841 PPMT(7.75%/12,9,18*12,-2148000,0)
    10 4873 PPMT(7.75%/12,10,18*12,-2148000,0)
    11 4904 PPMT(7.75%/12,11,18*12,-2148000,0)
    Deduction availed u/s 80C for FY 2007-08 Total 52246
    So Total Amount to be included in current year’s income= 1552246 1500000+52246

    according to me;

    opening intt. installment closing
    01 2148000 13425 18473 2142952
    02 2142952 13393 18473 2137872
    03 2137872 13362 18473 2132761
    04 2132761 13330 18473 2127618
    05 2127618 13298 18473 2122443
    06 2122443 13265 18473 2117235
    07 2117235 13233 18473 2111995
    08 2111995 13200 18473 2106721
    09 2106721 13167 18473 2101415
    10 2101415 13134 18473 2096076
    11 2096076 13100 18473 2090704
    12 2090704 13067 18473 2085298
    158974 221676
    During FY 2007-08, Sameer paid installments for full year. hence, he would have claimed Rs. 1.50 lacs (Max. permissible) towards interest payment of housing loan. Hence, he needs to add Rs. 1500000 + 150000 as short term capital gain if he sell property in Feb. 2009.

  66. ashutosh kuamr said

    sir, whether sameer has not claimed income tax benefits on interest paid on housing loan? Is interest paid on loan has taken as expenses. if it is so… expenses of this year also need to be deducted from capital gain. let me clarify about treatment of interest expenses in case of short term capital gain.

    • Dear Ashutosh,

      When interest is not claimed u/s 24. it can be claimed as expense while calculating capital gains. Indexation benefit is also available in that case.

      Regards,
      Prashant.

  67. ashutosh kuamr said

    sir, question is not clear about whether sameer claimed the interest paid amount u/s 24 or not, but in normal course he must have claimed. Since, Sameer sold the property withing 3 years of purchase, i suppose, is liable to pay tax on what ever deduction he has taken u/s 24 and u/s 80 C, will be taken as income for current year and will be taxed.

    Dear All, I cleared the last module some days back. It has been sometime and I am yet to land a job in financial planning. I am now wondering if there are really scope in this planning industry? Any sort of help will be welcomed.

    • Heartily congratulations!!!

      Prashant.

    • R Varadarajan said

      Congratulations Bob on clearing the Final Module. Yes. The subject is nascent in India but has tremendous scope in the years to come when people realise the importance of composite Financial Planning for Long Term instead of knee-jerk investment advices. You could look for opportunities in Banks in their Wealth Management wings. With best wishes

    • Dear BOB,
      The job which you are looking for may not be available as of now. You may initially have to start with front end job. Globally also planners spend maximum time in selling their services. You can still look for companies like Principal retirement, ICICI direct or securities, mutual funds and insurance at last.

      Also suggest name of the city where you look for the job.

      Dear Mr Dhairya Shah,
      You have to prepared for all the 6 cases as the cases are randomly picked up by the system. In case you remember the questions, you should post them here with your doubts in solving them so that you could get some help for solving similar issues in future. With best wishes,

    • Dear Dhairya,

      These case studies can also be repeated. But I think that makes no difference. Currently rigor of exam has changed hence, you may have to sharpen the concepts and be accurate with calculations.

      Past papers may help you a lot. Try to solve them without looking at answers. If all your calculations are correct, you are ready to give exams.

      All the best.

      Prashant V Shah.

    What exactly end of 10th year mean for calculation of future value @ inflation 5.5%, we need to take nper 11 year

    • @ashutosh
      It is exactly 10 years. like for the rate which you have given, the future value of an asset which is presently priced at 100 rs will be 100*(1.055)^10=170.8144. This value is at the end of 10 years. for some calculations we will often use this value by saying beginning of 11th year but the meaning will remain same

        Thanks for your wishes and encourgaement. Your notes on the blog were very useful for me.

        I was in fact preparing for Insurance module, but many of friend told me to try for Retiement first, so attempted. Although I am prepared for Insurnace modile but I find Investmernt module has lot of numerial sums which I like moest. So I will appear for Investment module next.

        In RPEB paper I find two numerical questions were on Mutual fund investment annd rebalancing portfolio every 10 years period. Yesterday while surfing your blog, similar question were found to be a part of Invetement practise questions. Does this mean we need to look at the questions of other modules as well? Please advice.

        Thanks

    Dear Sir,

    I have applied for a challenge status program and my exam is due on 10 Feb 2014. I have only around 25 days to study. I am working as a financial journalist. I havent started the studies yet, as I dont get enough time. I have made mistake to register the exam date too early. Let me know if still there is any way for me to clear it. I can put it a study time of around 2-3 a day.

  89. Sir please solve this for me : A software professional who retires today has 2 fixed life annuities, one provided by his invested pension plan at Rs. 20,000 pm & other provided by his employer at 35,000 pm. He has a second house which currently is let out at Rs. 2.2 lakhs pa rental. The rentals are expected to increase at 7% pa compounded . He currently spends Rs. 45,000 pm which will rise annually at inflation of 6% pa. If he invests excess amount at the end of every year in an instrument of return 8% pa & utilizes this fund in case of shortfall in funding household expenses, what could be the appropriate size of this fund 30 years after retirement ?

    • Murli said

      Find out FV annuities ( Rs 55000 x 12) in end mode for N=30 years with i=8%, P/y=1, C/y=1
      Find FV of Growing rental income = 220000{ 1.08^30 – 1.07^30} / ( 1.08-1.07)
      Find Fv of growing expnses = 45000 x 12{ 1.08^30 -1.06^30} / ( 1.08-1.06)
      Add FV of annuities + FV of rental growing – FV of growing expenses to arrive at corpus after 30 years.

      This question had appered in RPEB paper which I appeared yesterday and cleared.

      • Dear Vikram,
        I agree. IFP has 20% weight in all the modules. And many questions of tvm float across all the modules.(questions already posted on the site). Hence better tvm skills can definitely fetch 8 marks in any of the module.

  107. murli said

    Dear Sir,

    As you suggested here are the questions I faced in yesterday’s RAIP paper

    Four questions (exactly same) given below which have appeared in your blog ( by Hepguy on 25th Mar 2014) were asked
    Car damage insurance,
    Fire in mall,
    Comparing return on Insurance Policy
    Bungalow damage
    I therefore thank you for your blog which helped to prepare for exam.

    Four questions were very similar from sample papers although slightly tweaked.
    Factory insurance by Reinstatement method,
    Air condition insurance on replacement basis with (WDV instead SLM) method,
    Insurance requirement based on increasing income and expenses,
    Insurance requirement based on need basis

    Around 5 – 6 questions on insurance policy calculation. All the questions were tweaked and far different from sample papers.
    One on maturity value with money back policy
    One of death claim,
    One of SV,
    One on return on policy investment component on maturity value
    One of loan amount on money back policy
    One on comparing returns of money back policy paid up value with 8% return

    The additional questions which did not appeared in your blog were as below

    Pardon me for not remembering the exact answers and the wording and figures in the questions, but I tried to reproduce the essence of the question here.

    1) Ramesh to car loan of Rs 8 Lakhs and personal loan of Rs 3 lakh. The rate of interest is 12 % and 18 % with monthly reducing basis. He made windfall gain of Rs 6 Lakhs in 2013. His financial advisor advised him to repay these loans and invest the monthly installment in Bank deposits with interest rate between ranges of 8 – 10 %. He has two more years to repay these loans. Do you think the advice given to him is correct?
    Ans:
    – Yes as his net worth will increase between Rs 72500 to 110000
    – Yes, as his net worth will increase between Rs xxxxxx to Rs xxxxxx ( I don’t remember the no)
    – Yes, as his net worth will increase between Rs xxxxxx to Rs xxxxxx (I don’t remember the no)
    -No, as his net worth will reduce between Rs 15700 to Rs 46500

    2) Tow companies A and B purchase land in 2006. Company A completed construction in 2007 for Rs 70 lakhs and started manufacturing plant in 2008 for Rs 1.5 cr. Company B completed the construction in 2009 for Rs 90 lakhs and started manufacturing plant in 2009 for Rs 2 cr. Company A provides depreciation @ 10% on SLM method whereas Company B provides depreciation on WDV method. What addition reserves Company A need to provide on 2013 as compared to company B.
    Regret I do not remember the answer options.

    3) Ashok, a doctor by profession of age 33 years and have productive practice till age 62. His annual income is Rs 40 lakhs and monthly expenses are Rs 60000 of which he accounts for 15%. He has 2 daughter age 6 and 12. He wishes to provide fund of Rs 20 lakhs for each in today terms their education when they are 18 years old. He has already made provision of Rs 27 lakhs towards this. He has insurance policy of Rs 15 lakhs. He wish to make provision of his next 5 years and for non-working wife for next 40 years. How much insurance he should take now.
    Regret I do not remember the answer options.

    4) Mahesh, a lawyer by profession is 38 years old. He has three polices of Rs 20 lakh, RS 20 Lakhs and Rs 15 Lakhs money back with survival benefit of 15 % every 5 years of which 1 benefit is received. All these policies are maturing at his age of 60. He has a 2 daughter age 10 and 12 years. His annual earning are Rs 30 Lakhs. He wish to make provision of Rs 20 lakhs in today’s cost for each for their marriage when they will be 21 years. His monthly expense is Rs 50000 of which he accounts for 25 %. Calculate the insurance he need considering his tenure for next 10 years and for the expenses for his non-working wife for next 30 years.
    Regret I do not remember the answer option.

    5) Two different policies one with money back and other endowment were asked to compare with respect to cover and returns and was asked to suggest which is more suitable for a man age 32 with monthly expense of Rs 35000 ( policy holder account for 20%) and non-working wife for her expenses for 30 years.
    Regret I do not remember the figures in questions and answer options as Time was out for me.

    Hope these will be useful for future aspirents.

      The answer is ( A ) 3.88 Crores. . For solution you should use growing annuity formula for first, second and third 10 years seperately, recalulating the salary every time with g=10% and r=12%. The resultant fund should be reinvested@ 8.5% in retirement fund for 20 years, 10 years and 0 years. I would like to have the views from Prashant

      • aarvi1948 said

        Perhaps you are referring to PFRDA ( Pension Fund Regulatory and Development Authority ) as there is nothing in the name of PERFA. The answer in this case is ( A ) Reliance Life Insurance – which is a ASP ( Annuity Service Provider ) & also an Insurance company registered under IRDA (Insurance Regulatory and Develoment Authority ). This is a good question as the details of ASP are available only in PFRDA website

        Dear all friend
        Thanking you for your valuable reply.

        i have doubt on ans

        1]Mr. A had taken a loan of Rs. 40 lakh in July 2010 at a floating rate of interest of 10% p.a for tenure of 20 years from a housing finance company. The company sent a notice raising the interest rate to 10.75% p.a. effective January 2012 thereby increasing EMI. He decides to refinance the loan at 10.25% from a bank which charges a processing fee of 1% of loan sanctioned. What absolute amount he stands to save in the remaining tenure if the outstanding loan amount as at end of March 2012 is refinanced so that the new loan terminates as per original tenure?
        (a)Rs. 3,60,948
        (b)Rs. 1,92,266 ans by my
        (c)Rs. 4,90,240
        (d)Rs. 2,39,401 ans by sample paper

        here the charges pro fees 1% after the different calc but in real term when loan is refinance the Loan amt + loanx 1% = new loan come then we fond EMI & different to save money.

        2] Your client started investing Rs. 12,000 per month a year ago in an asset allocation of 30:70 in equity and debt to achieve a goal in 6 years from now by accumulating Rs. 10 lakh. You realize that he would be requiring Rs. 15 lakh for the same goal. You expect equity and debt to give returns of 11.75% p.a. and 8.25% p.a., respectively in the entire period of investment. You assess changing asset allocation to 65:35 in equity and debt by investing Rs. 2,000 additional per month to see how closer he can reach to his goal. You find that ______.

        how they get Ans of RS.147,691 but my ans is 174689 pls correct.

        3] A retired person has contracted a 20-year immediate annuity plan which provides an annual stream of income, increasing year-on-year at 5%. He is due to receive 5th installment of Rs. 5.50 lakh which is 6% of the balance corpus remaining in annuity. He wants the term of the annuity to increase. He estimates that Rs. 4.75 lakh would be sufficient for his current living expenses. He proposes this to the annuity provider with other terms remaining as originally agreed. If the yield of the annuity is 6.5% p.a., how many more installments would get added in the restructured annuity than the original?

        there are cal n=? I-[6.5-5]/1.05 pv-8691667 pmt-475000 [ why is not 475000*1.05 ] FV =0 p/y-1 c/y-1

    Now, She is ready to compromise 10% in her monthly requirement to ensure that at least 1st goal of 1 crore (then cost) is to be achieved and she wants to know surplus/shortfall in her 2nd goal of 1 crore (then cost)
    (Post retirement, she will invest in debt fund)

    2] You advised Sanjay to invest the retirement corpus in such way that bunch of 7 years monthly expenses available in a risk free fund in the beginning of 7 years and remaining corpus to be invested in a balanced mutual fund. He wants to know how much retirement corpus required maintaining the same life style based on above strategy and wants to analyze return of strategy.

    Dear Prashantji sir

    i have doubt of beg of months & end of month problem was here
    why they use end mode calc PV
    Example Rajesh is a 35-year-old man earning Rs. 4,00,000 per annum. Rajesh’s family consists of his wife (housewife), 4-year-old daughter and his retired parents who are now dependent on him. The net contribution made by Rajesh to the family is Rs. 25,000 per month (Rs. 3,00,000 per annum) after deducting taxes and personal expenses. Let’s assume that Rajesh’s salary will increase by 5% every year and his family contribution (Rs. 3,00,000) will also increase by 5% every year.
    Annual income Rs. 4,00,000 per annum &YQFDUFESJTFJOTBMBSZ 5% p.a. Net income after taxes and personal expenses Rs. 3,00,000 per annum Current age 35 years Remaining working years 25 years Future value of earning potential Rs. 1,43,18,129 Discount rate (PPF Rate) 8% Present value of future earnings Rs. 20,90,703
    Rajesh’s worth to his family is Rs. 1.43 crore over his remaining working life if he survives until he is 60 years old. But if something happens to Rajesh today, his family stands to lose this money. We need to find the value of this Rs. 1.43 crore as at today. So if we take the discount rate as 8% (risk-free PPF rate) then the value of Rs. 1.43 crore as at today equals Rs. 20,90,703 (Rs. 20.90 lakhs). This effectively means that a one-time amount of Rs. 20.90 lakhs invested at 8% interest rate for 25 years will yield Rs. 1.43 crore on maturity. Therefore the figure of Rs. 20.90 lakhs is Rajesh’s human life value (HLV) and he should take out life insurance cover of Rs 20.90 lakhs to protect his future income.
