Mithun asks,

I read your research on pension plans. But what exactly do you mean by “Save each month. Compound your savings in debt instruments…???”

Simple. Rather than paying an obscene premium for 30 years and making the life insurance company obscenely profitable while you receive a paltry pension, you can build a very decent corpus for yourself (and retire off the interest generated) by opening a Public Provident Fund account and saving the maximum possible each year (currently Rs 70,000) for 30 years.

What do you think?
