Analyst's Choice?


Short Duration debt funds are suitable to invest your money for a duration of 1 year to 3 years. You can expect to earn higher returns than what a bank fixed deposit of a similar duration can fetch.

The risk of incurring a loss in these funds over the said time frame is low, but they do not guarantee returns or safety of capital like a bank deposit. There have been instances when short duration funds have incurred losses.

Remember, these are suitable only to invest for a short time frame of up to 3 years. Do not invest in this, or any other Short Duration 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 fund 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.
