About Direct Plans of Mutual Funds
Compared to regular plans, direct plan is an efficient way to invest in mutual funds. Both variants of the scheme are similar in terms of investment objective, fund manager and portfolio composition. The only difference lies in the expense ratio. Direct plans have a lower expense ratio than regular plans. Due to this reason, the fund value of a direct plan (shown as NAV) is higher than the NAV of regular plans.

Direct plans of mutual funds are available for all AMCs i.e. SBI Mutual Fund, HDFC Mutual Fund, Reliance Mutual Fund, L&T Mutual Fund, Axis Mutual Fund etc.
Suitability of Direct Plans
Individuals who understand their investment needs and risk appetite would find direct plans very useful. Here, you can shortlist the top-rated funds and carry out the entire investing process independently. There will be no interference or hidden commissions from an external intermediaries like a mutual fund distributor or agent.
