    hi all

    I all i m just wondering if investment in recurring deposit is more beneficial or in MF ( debt ).

    I m intrested in investing 2000 pm for 3 years . should i invest it in RD or MF ( debt ) .

    RD will fetch me 7.5% annually . but MF in debt will fetch me slightly ( or more ) higher .

    But their is tax on the income that we receive from MF ( debt ), but i m not sure if it is also true for RD .

    Can any body help which once to choose

    thnk suresh

    There is no guarentee of debt MF fetching you higher returns than RD. Currently debt MF's aremore efficient than RD's in general. More clarity will come for DTC in coming months.

    Yor fund selection and allocation is mostly OK. I would like to give some suggessions though. Kotak Flexi Debt- Institutaional Plan is for institutional investors. Institutaional plans generally have very high minimum investment limits & different expense ratio than retail plans. You can invest in retail plan of same scheme. Another note is Templetion India Growth Fund is not a thematic fund. It can be called as mid cap oriented fund or a multi cap.

    Also funds DSP BlackRock Equity Fund & Reliance Growth Fund are mid cap funds with some large cap exposure.

    Try to invest via SIP route and stay invested atleast for 5 years. Happy investing.

    You are liable to pay tax in RD as well. I think ICICI deducts tax at source (not very sure) but you need to pay tax. The interest that you get gets added to your income from other sources
