I would like to mention here that my father has retired from his job almost a year back (It was a voluntary retirement.) And he gets a regular decent pension.
My mother is a housewife.
And my sister is a student.
is it ok for me as i am showing the liquid cash in three bank accounts in a same branch (father, mother and own younger sister) for total first year expenses instead of one account (and one sponsor as well)? by the way, i am showing fixed deposits for remaining yrs (joint and individual FDs of my father, mother and sister). Kindly comment. Is my financial standing OK?
