What is the benefit of mutual fund STP

I make Rs. 5000 STP weekly, from liquid fund to equity fund. Every time STP is done, I will have short term capital gains on debt fund. If STP runs for a year or 2, the amount of tax out go is substantial, and I am already in 30% tax bracket. And the equity investment is still on negative side. What is the use of STP?
