Also what is corpus amount required after my active employment/business income ends(may be at age 55/60) and till my last day(80 years).

What if after my retirement?
Say if you retiring after 20 years (2039) at age of 55 years , you need to create a retirement corpus of Rs 23,274,641(2.32 Crores) .This is to withdraw monthly Rs 96,214 (equal to Rs 30,000 monthly expenses today(2019) ) till age of life expectancy assumed 80 years (with 6% increase year on year considering inflation)
