a) Rs .119568
b) Rs. 125054
c) Rs. 117154

(1) The future value of current expenditure
(2) The Present Value of the corpus required in order to fund such expenditure post-
retirement
(3) The actual quantum of savings required (PMT).

(1) Future Value of Current Expenditure : Rs.10,80,4.86; where the PV = Rs.250000 r = 5% n =


30
(2) Find the Present value of Annuity Due for the next 20 years. Use inflation adjusted
return. Hence PV (AD) = Rs.16, 114,541; where inflation adjusted return = 3.33 %, n = 20
years and PMT = Rs.1080486.
(3) Now find the quantum to be saved per annum upto the year of retirement i.e. PMT. Hence
PMT = Rs.119568; where FV = Rs.16114541; r = 8.5%; n = 30 years.

Solution:
FV of salary = RS.68,000x (1.06^10) = RS.121,777.6434
Expected expenses = 70% of RS.121,777.64 = RS.85,244.3504
Capital required for retirement : Pmt = RS.85,244.3504
i = (5% - 4%) / 1+0.04 = 0.9615
n = 21
