I had been investing through monthly SIP in JM Money manager fund from April 2014 which is currently valued at ₹2.3 lakh. I want to redeem complete amount now. What are tax implications and how to calculate short and long term capital gains for redemption as Income tax rules changed over the years for debt funds. Currently I am in 30% tax slab.
