Should I invest in equity savings fund for parking my investible surpluses

I am retired, Senior citizen, 68 years, living in Mumbai. I am a keen follower of Advisorkhoj and extremely impressed with your information given. I adore your subject knowledge and appreciate and sincerely thank you for all the help you are giving. Tell me one thing how you are doing so much of social service without anything in return. Are you running some advisory service. If yes, kindly send me details. Presently I have one question and seek your advice. I want to make my advance income tax quarterly payment planning. For this I want to make a deposit of approximate amount of advance tax to be paid in a particular quarter (15 June, 15 October, 15 Dec & 15 March) now and wish to withdraw the required amounts on the dates shown (or 3 days in advance so that money is back in a/c and on each of the 4 nos. 15th I can pay advance tax on line). For above I am thinking of making investment in Equity Savings Fund of different AMCs so that reasonable return of 9-10% can be obtained and also no capital gains tax after one year withdrawal. Do you think it is good or suggest some other fun? Also let me know the funds where I can distribute and invest for wider choice (not all eggs in one basket)? I keenly look forward to your advice and also details of your services?

What is the difference in returns between dividend pay and reinvestment option

In one of reply to query you have mentioned that while switching the fund from dividend payout option to growth option, you need to keep two things in mind - 1) Exit load may be applicable as you are switching before 12 months. Please check the exit load percentage and the time period on the statement, 2) If you are making any profit on the switch, then it will be treated as short term capital gains and tax @15% shall be payable when you are filing your income tax returns. What is the implications if I want to change from dividend payout option to dividend reinvest?

Sep 5, 2017 by Shrawan Kumar,   |   Mutual Fund
