    1. Personally, I think your choices are excellent and spot on. The funds are fantastic. Please do continue your investments. Have you shortlisted any Mid-Small cap funds? Some suggestions are Franklin India Smaller Companies Fund, HDFC Midcap opportunities fund.. I have personally invested in them for your reference.


      1. thanks.. for the reply… i had shortlisted SBI Small & Midcap Fund & Franklin India Smaller Companies Fund. but now its not possible to invest SBI.. so now finalised on Franklin… but is it the correct time to start invest.. or any other suggestion.


  2. Anytime is a good time to invest. Please don’t time the market. However, if you consider the market levels, it has corrected quite a bit from the highest levels. So, it is definitely a good time to start investing. You can watch the market on Monday and then start investing.. Good luck !!!


    1. I am happy that it was helpful to you. I am happy to note that you have mapped your goals to your MF investments. This is really good news.
      If you require any further information or help, feel free to ping me.


  3. Ganesh sir.. need one more suggestion from you regarding my MF investments. right now i got all my funds direct- growth. as i told you earlier now i want to invest in Franklin.. smaller companies fund.. but should i go for growth option or dividend in this fund… which do you feel better..please give me your suggestions if possible with reasons.. thanks in advance


    1. My suggestion is always simple – Go for GROWTH fund. Dividend option has multiple complexities. Dividend is suitable only if you are dependent on that. From our conversation, it is apparent that you are very far from that.

      Next, Dividend taxation is different. Another important aspect is that you should be very careful about selling your units under dividend. Though you may be genuinely sell after a dividend as received, if you claim loss, it could be construed as Dividend Stripping (

      Lastly, please check the budget provisions. If your dividend exceeds 10 Lakhs (which I hope will happen one day), then you will be taxed for it.

      Instead GROWTH keeps it simple. If you hold for more than 1 year, it’s LTCG and tax free. Keep it simple.
