Can Mutual Fund investors invest in RGESS and claim tax benefit ?

POSTED BY Nikhil ON January 5, 2014 9:19 am COMMENTS (2)

Hi

I have invested in Mutual Funds in this FY; not in stocks. Can I invest through Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme (RGESS). I dont hold a demat account. The confusion is whether existing MF investors are eligible or not.

Thanks

Nikhil

    Dear Nikhil, not all MFs are eligible for RGESS. Please check your own funds are there or not under RGESS.

    thanks

    I think existing mutual funds or ETF investments do not make an investor
    ineligible for RGESS, unless you have done stock transactions in your DMAt account.

    You have to invest afresh in RGESS eligible fund / or ETF and hold them in a demat account.
