    hello Anurag,
    I am also a newbie in the investment and what I could understand through my reading and research is Equity investment is for comparitively for long run and not for short-term. 03 yr should be the time-frame when we should look for SWP/STP to Liquid/Debt funds or completely redeem and put in FDs, where we have the liquidity of the amount invested and don’t loose out on the amount we gained for last 5-7-10 yrs through our equity investment. Basically to safe-guard ourselves from equity pitfalls. Look into the returns graph provided in Valueresearch or Moneycontrol for HDFC Equity and QLTEF for 3 yrs, it’s not much, however, if you see, for more than 7,10 yrs retun is more than 2 fold. I think FD will fetch more retuns than equity in 3 yrs pre-tax.
    My rule: Equity only if time-horizon is very long (probably more than 10yrs away). Units should be transferred to Debt/Liquid fund 3 yrs prior to goal to secure investment. I believe other experts can throw much light in these and point out if I am incorrect.
    best regards
