Gains on mutual fund if held for less than a year are called short term gains tax is 15% for equity and as per your tax slab for debt funds. If the mutual funds have been held for longer than 1 year, then on equity funds there is no long term capital gains tax, and on debt funds it is 10% or 20% with indexation.

Yes. If the capital gains earned by you during a financial year are invested in specified mutual funds then such capital gains are exempt from capital gains tax under Section 54EA and Section 54EB of the Income Tax Act. Reliance Mutual Funds have very talented staff to explain without asking by the investor the details of the schemes and their benefits to the investors.Answered by mohit jagannath, 10 Oct '12 11:40 am
