    Manish….rest all is fine, but i dont think liquid funds provide 5-7% category returns. With such returns, they will start faring against fixed deposit due to their better tax treatment.

    Stating 4.5-5.5% percent would be better.

    i think, where ‘institutional’ is in name, it requires large minimum a/m. so there may be a little more return, it is not for retail investor like us.

  3. 1) You dont have to bother for tenure , for you its liquid in all time frames, so you can buy them and sell it whenever you want .

    2) 5-7%

    3) Minimum investments depend on particular MF , but it would be around 5-10k , like HDFC Liquid has 10k

    4) these are some
