What is the Nifty 100 Index Fund?

Nifty refers to the National Stock Exchange Fifty, it is the index for the National Stock Exchange in India. Nifty 100 index funds track the Nifty 100 index and invest in equities of companies present in the Nifty 100. The Nifty 100 is representative of the top 100 companies in the Indian stock market. They are identified on the basis of their market capitalisation and may include bluechip companies.

The Nifty 100 represents major sectors of the Indian economy. It allows investors to potentially diversify their portfolio across different sectors. However, despite the sectoral diversification, Nifty 100 index funds invest primarily in large cap companies and investors may not diversify their portfolios in terms of market capitalisation.

Nifty index funds are mandated to invest in companies belonging to the index. They aim to track the index and cannot adjust their holdings to suit market conditions. However, Nifty 100 index funds in India may offer several benefits. They are relatively less vulnerable to the risk of errors or bias, as they replicate the Nifty 100 index. However, as they invest in already established companies, with fewer growth opportunities, the potential returns may be relatively less.

Taxes on index funds are levied on capital gains and dividends. Dividends are included in the income of the investors and taxed on the basis of the investors income tax slab. Capital gains tax is determined by the time the units are held. Units held for less than a year are taxed at 15%, units held for over a year are taxed at 10% if the gains exceed ₹1,00,000.
