Who Should Invest?

  • You must invest in the fund only if you are looking for long-term investments. You should stay invested in the fund for at least 5 years in order to earn gains that beat the inflation rate and are also higher than fixed income options
  • All the equity funds are subject to market risks. Being a large-cap fund, you are suggested to invest in this fund only if you are willing to accept the possibility of moderate losses in their investments may consider investing in this fund
  • The fund invests only in companies with larger market capitalization. Such funds tend to fall less when the stock prices fall in comparison to those that invest in smaller companies. Hence, the fund is suitable for you if you are a conservative equity investor
  • Since investing in the fund is a high-risk bet, you may also consider investing in small and mid-cap funds such as Axis Small Cap Fund, Franklin India Smaller Companies Fund or Kotak Emerging Equity Scheme

Taxation- How will they be taxed?

The fund applies a short term capital gains tax of 15% if the units are sold within 1 year from the date of allotment. If the units worth more than Rs. 1 lakh are sold after 1 year from the date of allotment, a long term capital gains tax of 10% is applied. It must be noted that the given tax rates are exclusive of indexation.

For an example-

If an investor has made a capital gain of ₹50000 on investment in an equity fund, Short Term Capital Gains Tax of 15% would be levied if s/he withdraws the amount within one year of investment. The payable tax would be ₹7500.

Also, if an investor has made a capital gain of ₹1.5 lakh on investment in an equity fund, 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.
