    Hi Pankaj,
    Technically, all of them would require a different folio. Folio is just like an account number in a MF. Under one folio, you can invest in multiple schemes within the same MF. However, if you want to different details in different schemes, such as your nominee, different banks, a different Joint holder, you would need to have a new folio.

  2. I think to keep things simple , better open another account for them and let them invest through their account , It is more simpler and better from estate planning point of view !

    thank you

  4. Dear Pankaj, If you are asking for multiple members name in a common login ID in fundsindia, Yes it’s possible & within the same ID, it’s possible to invest under different names. From taxation point of view as well as to keep matter clean, it’s advisable to invest under individual folio no. within a common login ID.
