Systematic Investment Plan (SIP)
SYSTEMATIC INVESTMENT PLAN works on Rupee - cost averaging principle; whereby an individual at a regular interval, invest a particular amount of rupee notwithstanding the price of the unit of investment. Your money as a result, buys extra units when the price is down and lesser units at the point when the price is high which can mean an obvious low average cost per time unit. Rupee - cost averaging helps discipline you by investing monthly or quarterly instead of making irregular investments.
Investments kept for about one year or above by investors qualify for gains capital-wise and will be accordingly taxed. The said investments get the benefit of indexation also.
You can completely redeem every, or a portion of your investment with open - end funds. Mutual Fund Units are more liquid as compared to other investments, bonds and deposits.

The equity markets are volatile and the value of your investments may fluctuate with the ups and downs in the markets. Though the stock market in the past has recovered lost value with time, there is no assurance of performance. All you need to do is be patient and give time to your stock to recover.
