While it’s not advisable to stop SIPs, if you want to stop SIPs, here’s the process.

1. How to stop SIPs?

Stopping SIPs is very easy. All you have to do is download the SIP cancellation form and fill it up. Submit the filled form to the mutual fund distributor or the Registrar of that mutual fund.

Steps To Cancel SIPs:

1. You have to download the SIP Cancellation Form from the website and take a Printout.

2. You have to fill details like your name (investor’s name) and folio number.

  • Your name (applicant’s name)
  • PAN Number
  • Mutual Fund Scheme Name

2. How to pause SIPs?

There are times in life when you are short of money. Financial Emergencies attack without warning. You might have no option but to pause SIPs when there’s a cash crunch. You can pause SIPs for a month or even 3 months. The actual duration is at the discretion of the fund house.

Steps to pause SIPs:

  1. Submit the pause form to the AMC and mention the period when you want to pause SIPs.
  2. The Mutual Fund House will pause monthly or quarterly SIPs. SIPs will be resumed from the agreed date.
  3. If you have given a bank mandate to the Mutual Fund House where money is automatically debited from your bank account through ECS, you will have to make sure that the mandate to pause is given to the bank by the AMC.
  4. It would be great if you can submit the pause form to the mutual fund house, at least a month before the SIP date. The fund house can make the changes easily, and the instruction is activated.
