Reliance Index Fund - Nifty Plan NFO

Reliance Mutual Fund launches its Nifty ETF namely Reliance Index Fund - Nifty Plan. We already have Nifty Bees  & other ETFs from leading fund houses and Reliance Mutual Fund is the latest fund to join the bandwagon. As with any other Index Fund, the objective of this fund is to replicate the composition of the Nifty, with a view to generate returns that are commensurate with the performance of the Nifty.

Minimum Investment is Rs.5000 and both Growth & Dividend options are available. The entry load is nil and the scheme will be open till 23 Sep 2010. SIP facility is available with a minimum investment of Rs.500.

Why should one invest in Index Fund?

Index Funds are the simplest of the mutual fund products to understand. S&P CNX Nifty is a true representative of Indian Economy, since the constituents are blue chip companies which are the most liquid and widely owned companies. This scheme provides an opportunity to participate in India's growth story by investing in a well diversified portfolio of 50 stocks.

But investors need to understand that, like any other mutual fund, the performance of the scheme depends on the performance of the Nifty. Hence it would be better to invest through a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) in the Growth Option.This is an open-ended fund and not exactly an ETF. Index Investing is slowly catching up with investors' attraction and it won't be a surprise if see more such funds.


  1. Another index fund, which provides good options for passive investors.

  2. Among various mutual fund categories, opportunities funds offer investors the most flexible investment proposition. Their fluid investment style enables them to invest in stocks from across market segments (large, mid, small cap) and sectors in an unrestricted manner.

Service tax is a tax levied by the government on service providers on certain service transactions, but is actually borne by the customers. It is categorized under Indirect Tax and came into existence under the Finance Act, 1994. Union Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley, in his budget announcements proposed to impose a cess, called the Krishi Kalyan Cess, @ 0.5% on all taxable services. The present rate of service tax will be hiked to 15 per cent from June 1, 2016, from 14.5 per cent. Take a look at what gets expensive:

Restaurant Bills :If you are dining in a restaurant that already has service tax applicable, you are going to pay more on your eating out. Though 0.5 per cent on a single bill may not mean much, frequent diners may end-up paying a lot during the year.

Travelling: You will have to pay more for air travel, as there is a service tax on tour operators and travel agents.

Moneycontrol Terminal - Streaming Live Quotes

Moneycontrol has introduced a new feature Moneycontrol Terminal - an enhanced version of real time price updates. Though there were live quotes provided by the website previously, the present form  gives a better update of live quotes of indices and stocks.

This terminal provides live streaming quotes for both NSE and BSE free. It also provides quotes for most of the indices and also the constituents/stocks of the indices in BSE and NSE.  The terminal also provides live news and other market news, which might be useful for traders. The hardware recommended is minimum of 1 GB RAM.

It would be better if stock of any choice could be added ( market watch of a set of stocks ), which would be easier to track one's trading positions. Anyway, this is a better alternative for people who don't have access to any trading software, to view live action of the markets.
