What are Index Funds & ETFs in India?

Index Funds in India

An index fund in India is a passive investment scheme that tracks a particular index such as NSE Nifty, BSE Sensex, Nifty 50, Nifty 100 etc. The fund's securities are invested in the same stocks as the index it tracks and may potentially offer similar returns. There are several types of index funds in India:

  • Equity Index Funds:

    These index funds track equity market indices. They may be a diverse investment option for investors seeking investments in stocks.

  • Sector Index Funds:

    This type of index mutual fund tracks the stocks of companies involved in a particular sector such as technology or healthcare. Investors may invest in a diverse range of stocks within a particular sector and potentially benefit from the performance of the sector.

  • Commodity Index Funds:

    These index funds in India track indices related to commodities such as gold or oil. Investments in commodity index funds may be an opportunity to diversify an investor’s portfolio through different asset classes.

  • Bond Index Funds:

    These index mutual funds reflect the performance of specific bond market indices. They may be relatively low-risk index investments.

  • International Index Funds:

    These index funds track foreign market indices and expose investors to a wide range of markets. Investors may potentially avail the benefits of a geographically diversified portfolio.

  • Target Maturity Index Funds:

    These index funds aim to potentially generate income over the target maturity period by tracking a particular index.

Index funds in India are subject to Short-Term Capital Gains Tax and Long-Term Capital Gains Tax. Units held for less than 12 months are subject to STCG tax at 15%. Units held for longer than 12 months are subject to LTCG tax at 10%. Gains up to 1 lakh are exempt from any taxation.

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs)

ETFs are passive investment schemes that track a particular index. ETFs are traded on the stock exchange. There are several types of Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs) in India:

 
  • Equity ETFs:

    These exchange-traded funds are designed to track a specific index. For example, Nifty 50 ETFs track the Nifty 50 Index. This investment can be traded on the stock exchange.

  •  
  • Commodity ETFs:

    Commodity ETFs invest in commodities such as gold and silver. The movement in prices of these commodities may change throughout the day.

Equity exchange-traded funds are subject to STCG and LTCG tax based on the holding period of the stocks. Units held for less than one year are subject to STCG tax at 15%. Units above ₹1 lakh, held for longer than 1 year are subject to LTCG at 10%.

Commodity ETFs are subject to STCG on the sale of stocks in less than 3 years. Capital gains are added to the investor's income tax and taxed according to their income tax slab. LTCG tax is levied on units held for longer than 3 years at 10% with indexation benefits.

Who Should Invest in Index Mutual Funds & ETFs in India?

Index Funds

Index funds may be subject to different levels of market risk. Certain index funds such as target maturity index funds may comparatively be a lower-risk fund. These funds may be suitable for investors with a low-risk appetite. Moreover, investors with a specified investment horizon may potentially benefit by investing in target maturity index mutual funds.

Certain index fund investments such as equity index funds, small-cap index funds and sector index funds may be high-risk investments. These funds are vulnerable to market volatility and fluctuations. Investors seeking a passive investment strategy with a high-risk appetite may potentially benefit by investing in these funds.

Investors must always consider their risk appetite and investment horizon before investing in any scheme. It is important to read all scheme-related information carefully.

Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs)

ETFs may be a relatively low-cost investment option to obtain exposure to the stock market. Investors seeking exposure to the stock market may potentially benefit from investing in ETFs. Equity ETFs follow a passive investment strategy by tracking a particular index. This investment option may be suitable for investors seeking to passively invest in equities.

Investors seeking to diversify their investments in the stock market may potentially benefit by investing in ETFs. Exchange traded funds invest in diversified stocks; this characteristic may potentially reduce risk as compared to individual stocks.

Investors seeking flexibility and liquidity in their investments may benefit by investing in ETFs. As exchange-traded funds are traded on the stock market investors need a DEMAT account to invest in them.

Lastly, investors seeking an investment scheme with a relatively lower expense ratio may benefit from ETF investments. As these funds are a passive investment option, they may have a lower expense ratio.
