This time may vary from about six months to over three years. Equity Mutual Funds, Debt Funds and other Mutual Fund Investments can be done on an SIP basis.

The first benefit of SIP Mutual Funds is for the beginners in investment, in short the layman, who has no basic idea of day to day market operations. It may also happen that a firm or company may have money to invest but not the time and resources for day to day transaction. In these cases, The SIP Mutual Funds are an easy way to invest an amount which is allotted to different schemes and get the net return from the same after the due time period is over.

The tax laws in India states that if you invest in an SIP for a period of ten months or the minimum available period, whichever is lower, the taxation on that amount of investment for Capital Gain Taxation Head is exempted. Many firms and companies, invest in SIP to exempt themselves from paying hefty taxes.
