Risks in MIP Mutual Fund Scheme

Before Investing in any of the above mentioned best monthly income plans, you must know the risks of a monthly income scheme.

No fixed assurance

It is a common belief that monthly income plan provides fixed income monthly. But, there is no guarantee of assured returns in such Mutual Funds. As this scheme also invests in equities, the returns depend on the fund performance and the market status.

Dividends are declared through profits and not capital

Dividends for Monthly Income Scheme can be paid only from the additional income and not from the capital investment. For instance, if the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the fund increases from INR 10 to INR 13, the scheme can declare only out of INR 3 it has earned in capital appreciation. Therefore, if the scheme's NAV rises slowly or falls due to market moves, it may not declare dividends at all.
