Analyst's Choice?


Liquid funds invest in bonds having maturity of up to 3 months. They are suitable to park the amount that you have set aside to meet any emergency needs or any surplus money that you don't need for the next few months to an year. You can expect to earn better returns than what you would get from a bank account.

The risk of incurring a loss in these funds is negligible but they do not guarantee returns or safety of capital. Though rare, there have been few instances when liquid funds have incurred losses.

Remember, these are suitable only to invest for a short time frame of up to one year. Do not invest in this, or any other Liquid fund, if your aim is to build wealth in the long run.

Taxability of earnings:

Capital gains

  • If the mutual fund units are sold after 3 years from the date of investment, gains are taxed at the rate of 20% after providing the benefit of inflation indexation.
  • If the mutual units are sold within 3 years from the date of investment, entire amount of gain is added to the investors' income and taxed according to the applicable slab rate.
  • No tax is to be paid as long as you continue to hold the units.


  • Dividends paid by the mutual fund scheme are taxed at the rate of 25% (effectively 29.12%, including surcharge and cess). This is known as Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT). Though the investor does not pay this tax directly, it is deducted from the dividend income before passing on to the investor.
