When do I use a Systematic Withdrawal Plan?

An investor can use a Systematic Withdrawal Plan when he wants to have a regular cash flow from his investments. The need for a Systematic Withdrawal Plan differs for every person. SWP can be useful for child education, paying EMI’s, retirement etc.

Who can choose to invest in a Systematic Withdrawal Plan?

Any person who has invested in any of SBI Mutual Fund open-ended schemes can choose to start a Systematic Withdrawal Plan for a regular cash flow subject to lock-in period, if any.

How does a Systematic Withdrawal Plan work?

A Systematic Withdrawal Plan(SWP) works in an opposite way to Systematic Investment Plan(SIP).A Systematic Investment Plan(SIP) allows an investor to invest a fixed amount at pre-determined intervals and a Systematic Withdrawal Plan(SWP) is a facility which allows an investor to withdraw a fixed amount at pre-determined intervals. The investor can choose the amount, the frequency and the duration of the SWP according to his needs. Withdrawals through SWP are subject to Exit Load as applicable.

How does long term and short term capital gain affect my tax implications ?

The tax implications on Mutual Funds are determined based on the type of Mutual Fund and holding period (from date of acquisition up to the date of the redemption/transfer).

For equity-oriented schemes (having at least 65% equity exposure): If the holding period is less than 1 year, then you realise Short Term Capital Gains which are taxable at a flat rate of 15%**. If the holding period is more than 1 year, then you realise Long Term Capital Gains which are taxable at a flat rate of 10%** if the Long Term Capital Gains exceed Rs.1,00,000 in a year. Long Term Capital Gains up to Rs.1,00,000 in a year are tax-free.

For non-equity oriented schemes (if units acquired on or after April 1, 2023):


  1. Schemes having up to 35% equity exposure: The capital gains on redemption of such units would be treated as Short Term Capital Gains irrespective of holding period and would be taxed as per the slab rates** applicable to the investor


  2. Schemes having between 35% to 65% equity exposure: If the holding period is less than 3 years, then you realise Short Term Capital Gains which are taxable at the applicable slab rates**. If the holding period is more than 3 years, then you realise Long Term Capital Gains which are taxable at a flat rate of 20%** after allowing indexation benefit.

In view of the individual nature of tax implications, each investor is advised to consult with his/ her tax consultant with respect to the specific tax implications arising out of their transactions.

Disclaimer: Past performance may or may not be sustained in future. Exit load has not been taken into calculation. The above calculator is just for illustration purpose and one should consult his/her financial advisor before making any investment. SWP option for monthly and quarterly are shown but weekly, half yearly and annually options are also available. If dates selected falls on holiday, then calculation is done based on the next working day. 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.
