More About This Fund

About Nippon India Ultra Short Duration Fund

Nippon India Ultra Short Duration Fund, earlier known as Reliance Ultra Short Duration Fund is an open ended Ultra Short Term Fund(USDF) that invests in bonds, debt securities and money market instruments that have Macaulay Duration of 3-6 months. It is a Debt Fund with low risks, high liquidity and a good alternative to Bank Fixed Deposits.

The investment objective of this scheme is to generate optimal returns (consistent with moderate levels of risk and liquidity) by investing in fixed income securities.

Who should Invest?

  • Conservative investors wanting fixed returns and a secure portfolio for their money
  • Investors seeking highly liquid fund to invest for a short time can invest in this USDF
  • Investors who are looking for better options to bank deposits
  • Investors wanting a stable source of regular income


Nippon India USDF is low on market risks. Because of its low duration, risk of changes in rates of interest is almost negligible. However, no fund guarantees capital gains. There is a possibility of credit risk which in rare cases may happen.

Will You Pay Tax?

Nippon India USD Fund is taxed as per the norms of Debt Funds. If an investor has made a capital gain of ₹50,000 on investment in a debt mutual fund and withdraws the amount before 3 years of investment, Short Term Capital Gains Tax would be levied, as per the income tax slab of the investor. ₹50,000 would be added to the taxable income of the investor and taxed accordingly.

If an investor withdraws the investment including capital gains post 3 years of investment, Long Term Capital Gains Tax of 20% is levied, with the benefit of indexation.

Indexation reduces the value of overall Long Term Capital gains to reflect the effect of inflation on your investment.

To calculate the final value of capital gains post indexation, we use the government’s Cost Inflation Index (CII) in the following formula:

Indexed cost of Acquisition = Investment Amount * (CII of the year of withdrawal/ CII of the year of investment)

Suppose the investment amount is ₹70,000 in the year 2016 and the withdrawal amount is ₹1 Lakh. The value of capital gains is ₹30,000 before indexation

Indexed Cost of Acquisition= 70000* (280/254) = 77165.35

Note: CII in the year 2015 = 254

CII in the year 2018 = 280

Final Value of Capital Gains= 100000- 77165.35 = 22834.65

Tax Payable = 20% of 22834.65 = 4566.93

No Tax is charged as long as you hold the units.
