Suppose you invest Rs. 50000 in a top rated Mutual fund and based on the past performances you assume future rate of returns as 12% on your investment. Then you need to divide 72 by Rate of returns to find the Years needed to double the money.

72 divided by 12 gives the result as 6. So based on Rule of 72, it will take 6 years to get your money doubled as Rs. 1 Lakh.

If you are lucky enough to get 18% annuliased returns, then your money can get doubled in 4 Years. Higher the rate of returns, less is the no. of years to get your money doubled.

Rule of 72 looks like a small Maths equation, but in reality it's an extremely useful thumb rule to plan out for investing.

Give a proper thought about your future goals and money to be invested, and you can make some good planning using this rule.
