More About This Fund

About Franklin Build India Fund

As the name of the fund itself is indicative of its investment strategies, Franklin Build India Fund invests directly or indirectly in infrastructure building companies and related activities. The fund’s investment is oriented towards structural themes and not cyclical themes comprising of companies across the market capitalization range.

It invests mainly in equities (more than 90% of the corpus) of infrastructure and allied sectors and hence it is a high risk investment. Infrastructure related activities include development, operations, management and maintenance of various infrastructures such as transportation, energy, resources & other infrastructure.

Who Should Invest?

  • Investors seeking capital appreciation from long term investment plan
  • Investors ready to invest in high risk equity fund
  • Investors looking for funds that do thematic investment in infrastructure related firms and activities


There are market and liquidity risks in case of equity investment. This scheme is an open ended equity scheme following infrastructure theme with high risk-return policy. Thus, investors with tolerance for high risks should invest in this. Experts suggest to go for broader and more flexible funds like multi cap funds that provide more freedom than this narrowly defined investment mandate.

Will You Pay Tax?

If you withdraw or redeem the units before one year of investment, Short Term Capital Gains Tax of 15% is levied. Whereas, Long Term Capital Gains Tax above ₹1 lakh will be taxed at 10% after completion of 1 year of investment.

Let’s say, an individual has ₹2 lakh disposable taxable income in a given financial year, and s/he decides to invest the amount in ELSS. ₹1.5 lakh out of this amount would be exempted from any taxation.₹50,000 would be taxed as per the income tax slab of the investor.

It should be noted that the investment in ELSS remains locked-in for 3 years.

The returns from ELSS are taxed like that from any other equity mutual fund scheme. However, since the units can’t be redeemed before 3 years of investment, only Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% above ₹1 lakh will be levied.

Suppose an investor has made a capital gain of ₹1.5 lakh on investment in this scheme, and withdraws the amount after 1 year of investment, Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 10% would be levied on ₹50000. ₹1Lakh is exempted from taxation. The payable tax would be ₹5000.
