How do I know which funds are giving the best dividends

Firstly congratulations on a fantastically designed website! It is far more powerful then any website that I have seen on MFs and I do come to your website for some preliminary analysis. I was going through the website , and was not sure if I there are inconsistencies or is that I am screening inappropriately. While going through best dividend schemes (consistent across multiple years), I came across the following schemes, with supposedly high yields: Principal Emerging Bluechip – Dividend, Mirae Asset India Equity Fund – Dividend, SBI Magnum Multicap Fund – Direct – Dividend, DSP Equity Fund – Direct, BOI AXA Large & Midcap Fund - Regular Plan – Regular - Dividend, BOI AXA Large & Midcap Fund - Eco Plan - Regular – Dividend. However, while going through the dividend history sheets, I was not able to see BOB Axa at all in the dividend history with % yield, additionally it seemed to have relatively less yield compared to the % shown differently in your other web pages. I think the only consistent ones were Principal Emerging Bluechip / Mirae Asset which featured in both cases (across most periods). I was wondering, if you could guide in the analysis for enabling me to create a consistent and sure shot shortlist of MFs having best returns across most periods for the following criteria (across all types of equity MFs). a) High dividend yield % MFs ( I am targeting > 12-15% annual dividend yield returns, if feasible) - Max 5 schemes, b) Lumpsum - Max 5 schemes, c) SIP MFs - Max 5 schemes. Will look forward to your guidance on how to go about the same?
