Who should Invest

Risks Involved

As a Contra Fund, the undervalued stocks are highly affected by market volatility. If market trends go downwards, it may remain underpriced. In case these stocks fail to perform in a bull market then the portfolio may contain negative returns.

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.

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 ₹50,000. ₹1Lakh is exempted from taxation. The payable tax would be ₹5000.

This is as per the taxation regulations of Equity Funds as laid down by SEBI.
