SIP is a method of investing in a mutual fund. The taxability of mutual funds depends on their type and the period of investment. So, a SIP is not always tax-free. If you invest in an equity-linked saving scheme ELSS mutual fund, the returns will be tax-free. If you invest in equity mutual funds and invest for 12 months, you will receive short-term capital gain and pay tax @ 15% + cess + surcharge. However, if you stay invested for more than 12 months, then you will earn long-term capital gains and pay tax @ 10% + cess + surcharge if the gain is more than Rs 1 lakh.

SIP is a better investment option in comparison to FD especially if you consider the flexibility of investment, advantage of diversification, tax benefits, and higher returns. That is why it is better to invest in a systematic investment plan than in fixed deposit.

While investing in a mutual fund, SIPs are a much better option than lumpsum as the SIP solves the three big problems that people face while starting their investing journey - lack of adequate investible surplus, lack of discipline, and the fear of volatility in the stock market.
