Investments made in mutual fund schemes carry high risk and there is no assurance or guarantee that the objective of the schemes will be achieved. The above illustration / calculation should not be considered as any guarantee of returns to the investors / who are opting for SWP. In view of the individual circumstances and risk profile, each investor is advised to consult their investment/tax advisor(s) before making a decision to invest. In the above calculations, it has been assumed that investor falls under highest tax bracket (i.e. 30%) and total income of the investor does not exceed Rs. 1 crore. Gains on the redemption of units of mutual fund are treated as capital gains for income tax purpose. For equity-oriented schemes, gains on the investment for <=1 year are treated as Short-Term Capital Gains (STCG) and taxed at 15% and 30% in case of debt oriented schemes. Gains on investment greater than 1 year are treated as Long-Term Capital Gains (LTCG) for equity oriented s chemes and are exempt as per current tax regulations and greater 3 years in case of Debt Oriented schemes is taxed at 20% plus additional taxes post indexation. Calculations of tax include the amount of tax plus surcharge. At the time of the redemption of units, redemption amount comprises two parts. One is the invested amount and the other is gains on the invested amount. STCG/LTCG tax is applicable only on the gains made on the redemption units. In case of Systematic Withdrawal Plan (SWP), at the time of redemption of each instalment, investor needs to pay STCG/LTCG tax only on the gains part and not on the invested amount. Over a period of time with market appreciation, in each SWP instalment, invested amount (principal) component decreases and growth/gains part increases. Thus it helps the investor over a period of time to consume less principal amount and thereby allowing the balance principal amount to grow further. Mutual Fund investments are subject to market risks, read all scheme relate d documents carefully.

Please note that in the Union Budget 2018, it has been proposed to introduce Long Term Capital Gains (LTCG) on equity oriented mutual fund schemes. LTCG from sale of equity shares and equity mutual fund schemes are proposed to be taxed at 10%, if an individual�s total capital gains cross Rs1 lakh. Currently, there is no LTCG tax if one holds the equity mutual fund units for more than a year. The Union Budget 2018 has proposed that all gains up to January 31, 2018 will be grandfathered. Only the Gains that would arise after January 31, 2018 would be considered. Education Cess is also proposed to change to 4%. Also, Exemption interest income on fixed deposits with banks has been proposed to be increased from Rs10,000/- to Rs50,000/- for Senior Citizens and TDS shall not be required to be deducted on such income, under section 194A. These changes have not been taken into consideration in the above illustration. The proposed changes could lead to increase in tax liabili ty of investor for withdrawal made through SWP. Investors are requested to consult their tax / financial advisor before taking decision of investment / opting for Bandhan SWP facility.
