In the last month or so several fund houses have launched their RGESS mutual funds, and while existing funds are also eligible for this rebate, that hasn’t stopped funds from launching schemes specifically for this purpose.
I think that’s mainly because it helps for marketing purposes, and a secondary reason could be that you didn’t have funds that were actively managed and were eligible under RGESS, but now funds have launched such schemes as well.
The table below lists every fund that I know of which has been launched specifically to take advantage of the RGESS scheme, and it has a few words describing what the fund is all about as well.
|S.No.||Fund Name||Investment Objective||NFO Date|
|1||SBI RGESS Fund||Actively managed fund that only invests in shares of CNX 100||09 Feb 2013 – 09 Mar 2013|
|2||IDBI RGESS Fund||Actively managed fund that invests in shares of CNX 100 and shares of public sector enterprises which are categorized as Maharatna, Navratna or Miniratna.||09 Feb 2013 – 09 Mar 2013|
|3||UTI RGESS Fund||The principal investment objective of the scheme is to invest in stocks of
companies comprising S&P CNX Nifty and endeavor to achieve return
equivalent to Nifty by â€œpassiveâ€ investment. The scheme will be managed
by replicating the index in the same weightage as in S&P CNX Nifty â€“ Index
with the intention of minimising the performance difference between the
scheme and the S&P CNX Nifty â€“ Index in capital terms

Hi Ramana… If your gross total income is less than Rs. 10 lakhs and if you are a new equity investor, then you are eligible for this exemption u/s. 80CCG.
SIP is available in RGESS. PLEASE give information about SIP
No SIP can be registered in RGESS’ current mandate but as the budget proposals have come out there is possibility that Fund houses in near future might offer this facility.
I’m not sure what you mean Amitesh – can’t you start a SIP in one of the existing mutual funds eligible for RGESS or the new ones that they are issuing for this purpose?
Oh yes, if your trading account allows to set up one auto allocation or something like that. In fact I missed in taking in account those ETF’s already available, but that way many investors’ will be blocked out for benefits as those who had Demat A/cs before Nov’12 are not eligible to take benefit of this scheme and I hope that these new investors are not made a victim of broker greed.
