Debt Funds with NO Exit Load
Exit load is a fee charged when you redeem all your investments from a mutual fund. All mutual fund houses charge an exit load on mutual fund if you redeem before a decided period. An exit load is charged only for a specified duration only after which there is no certain exit load.
Exit load is charged by fund houses to ‘discourage’ investors from hopping in-out of schemes. Different mutual fund schemes have different time-periods in which they levy exit loads.
But many mutual fund schemes do not charge any exit load, especially the ‘debt mutual funds’.
