Tax Saving Mutual Funds

 

Q. How do I make payments towards the mutual fund?

A. Payments towards mutual funds can either be made by cheque or by direct debit. The most convenient option, if you have opted for an SIP, is to go for the direct debit wherein the mutual fund provider will directly debit the SIP amount from your account every month once you give them the permission to perform electronic clearance.

Q. When should I pay for my SIP?

A. When you apply for the the SIP you will be informed of the dates on which payments can be made. You can select one of those. For example, if you have invested in ICICI mutual funds, you will be able to make the payments either on the 1st of the month, on the 10th of the month or towards the end of the month, based on your convenience.

Q. Is there a minimum investment required for ELSS?

A. Yes. The minimum investment amount will depend on the mutual fund provider but in general it can be about Rs. 5,000.

Q. What is NAV?

A. NAV of Net Asset Value is the price of each unit at that date in time. When a request for withdrawal is submitted, the number of units available for withdrawal are multiplied by the NAV and the resulting amount is credited to the investors acount.

Q. How is NAV calculate?

A. The NAV is calculated by subtracting liabilities from the total asset value and dividing it by the number of outstanding shares.

Q. The amount that I got was less than what the NAV promised when I checked the statement. How is that possible?

A. The NAV can change everyday, therefore, when a request for a withdrawal is made, the NAV taken into account is that of the day that the request is processed and not of the date of issuing the statement.

Q. Does a high NAV mean the fund is good?

A. No. A high NAV does not necessarily mean that the fund is a good one. A good way to figure out if funds are good or not is to see the historical returns the funds have provided and check its rating with credit rating companies like CRISIL.

A. There is no upper limit on how much can be invested in these funds.

A. The maximum amount that can be withdrawn is determined by the NAV and the number of units available.
