Sundaram Rural and Consumption Fund - Regular Plan


1 Lakh

Investment Grown to
₹ 1.08 Lakh

₹ 10000

Monthly SIP Grown to
₹ 4.33 Lakh

Suitability:

This is a fund that invests mainly in the shares of consumer-facing companies.

We believe that investors should avoid funds that have a narrowly defined investment mandate such as this one. Instead, they should invest in multi-cap funds which provide complete freedom to the fund management team to invest in companies from which it expects maximum gains.

But if you do invest, you must do so only through the SIP route. Click here to read a primer on SIP investing.

Warning: Do not invest in this, or any other consumption-themed fund, if you need to redeem your investment in less than five years.

Taxability of earnings:

Capital gains

  • If the mutual fund units are sold after 1 year from the date of investment, gains upto Rs 1 lakh in a financial year are exempt from tax. Gains over Rs 1 lakh are taxed at the rate of 10%.
  • If the mutual fund units are sold within 1 year from the date of investment, entire amount of gain is taxed at the rate of 15%.
  • No tax is to be paid as long as you continue to hold the units.

Dividends

  • Dividends are added to the income of the investors and taxed according to their respective tax slabs. Further, if an investor's dividend income exceeds Rs. 5,000 in a financial year, the fund house also deducts a TDS of 10% before distributing the dividend.
