      That’s incorrect. I am using fundsIndia and haven’t paid a single penny to them. They earn directly from the AMCs as distribution fees.

  2. Dear Ragavan, If you want to invest online & under a single platform, please check

    Demat is not required to invest in mutual fund. You can invest in it , directly from AMC , agent or fundsindia. There will be no brokerge , but there is something called Expenses ratio which is deducted from NAV directly, you cant save it .
