Dividend yield funds in India

Once upon a time, time was easy. Mutual funds were nothing but mutual funds and there were not many options to pick from. You were having money and a mutual fund company was having a scheme. You put your money in a scheme of a particular mutual fund without too much of thought of plans on scheme and earned returns on it.

This all things were once upon a time. But now you have a basket full of mutual funds and each fund has scores of schemes. Today in market you can find enormous kinds of mutual funds that will offer you with number of options to invest in.

Similar to a growth-oriented mutual fund, a mutual fund that offers you dividends (an amount that a mutual fund distributes amongst its investors from the profits it makes) at regular investments and a mutual fund that pays you dividends only to reinvest the same amount and give you more units of the same.
