Estate Planning: The term ‘Estate Planning’ refers to the process of making a Will as well as executing other important document such as Power of Attorney. In India, Estate planning is amongst most ignored financial planning areas as people hardly think about dying too early and it’s forbidden for the family members to even think of death of the bread winner.
