DTC treatment of debt mutual funds

Hi, I wish to know what will be the tax treatment of debt mutual funds under DTC, for both dividend and growth options.

Thanks very much.

After direct tax code implementation, Dividend Distribution Tax (DDT) will be removed from debt and non-equity based mutual funds but now dividends on non-equity funds will be taxable in investor's hand as per his/her slab rates. There will also be a TDS 0f 10% (20% in case of NRI and companies) if dividend is more than 10,000 Rs for non-equity funds.

Growth based debt fund will have new indexation rule, all gains after indexation will be added to taxable income and taxed as per slab rates. 10% income tax will be payable without indexation benefit.

So growth based debt investment will be better choice after Direct tax code.
