Direct Investing in Mutual Funds

Regular and Direct Mutual Fund plans are options to buy the same mutual fund scheme, run by the same fund managers who invest in the same stocks and bonds. The major difference between direct plan and a regular plan is that in the case of a regular plan your mutual fund(also known as AMC) pays a commission to your broker whereas, in case of a direct plan, no such commission is paid.
