    Shiva Prasad,

    If and when the direct scheme comes in and AMC comes out with plans .People have to decide. If there is a 0.5% difference between direct and distributor(Fundsindia) route then it would be advisable to move to direct route as this 0.5% will make a huge difference in your corpus over a long term like 15+ years.

    But remember you will loose out on the convenience of single login for all the scheme that fundsindia offers.

    I highly suspect there will be 0.5% difference. There might be a difference of 0.2% which is what i am expecting in which case i am willing to pay for the convenience that fundsindia gives me

    but i think , it would change after dt.01.01.2013,when the as per new Sebi’s rules, the direct plan for every mutual fund will be there. VRO says ‘ industry insiders estimate that direct investors could have an advantage of about 0.5 to 1 per cent per year for equity funds. Over five years, this would accumulate to an impact of about 5.2 per cent.’ please refer for wholesome perspective.

    Funds India is as good as directly investing in AMC. Good thing with Funds India is that you can get the funds from different so you have all your investment only at one place so easy to track and manage.
