I want to invest some amount over a period of one year and then withdraw it..I was thinking about the liquid funds but i am not sure whether it is tax effective or not..

P.S. I fall in 10% tax slab.

  1. Dear Rajan, the liquid funds redemption ‘ll involve LTCG as well as STCG for more than & less than 1Y holdings. So it ‘ll be a bit complicated taxation calculation to you. Now compare how much more over bank RDs, you can earn?

    In case of RDs, you may earn 7-8% for 13 months period. That’s gtd. but in case of liquid fund, it’s not at all gtd.
