What is the SIP Calculator?

A systematic investment plan (SIP) calculator is an interactive tool that calculates the returns on your SIP investments on the basis of expected returns and the duration of your SIP. The SIP  calculator tells you the future value of all of your SIP investments after the SIP period. 

TThe SIP Calculator tool helps you get a rough estimate of the final maturity amount for your SIPs based on a projected annual return rate. You can use our INDmoney SIP calculator to see how much your investment can grow if you invest today.

There are many SIP calculators available on INDmoney on the basis of the SIP investment frequency. Some examples are the Daily SIP Calculator, Weekly SIP Calculator, Monthly SIP Calculator, and Quarterly SIP Calculator

Daily SIP calculator:

INDmoney’s daily SIP calculator enables users to calculate the mutual fund returns on the investments made using the Daily SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) feature within the INDmoney app. For example: A user invests Rs 100 per day through a daily SIP in a mutual fund with an expected annual return of 12%. The daily SIP calculator would yield how much this amount would amount to in a given time period such as 1 years, 3 years and 5 years etc.

Weekly, monthly SIP calculator:

Just like a daily SIP, a user could also be investing in mutual funds through weekly SIPs. The weekly SIP calculator on INDmoney will help users estimate how much a weekly SIP in mutual funds would amount to in the future assuming a certain rate of return and time period. Similarly, the monthly SIP calculator can help the user to estimate the future value of his investments, given a certain time period and rate of interest.

How to Use the SIP (Systematic Investment Plan) Return Calculator?

  • Step 3: Input Rs 1,000 as the Daily SIP amount

  • Step 4: Choose the expected return as 12% per annum

  • Step 5: Choose the time period as 10 years

  • Step 6: Now, you should be able to see: 

  1. Total amount invested over this period: Rs 36.5 lakh (365 days * 10 years * daily amount of Rs 1000)

  2. Future value of your SIP: Rs 70.55 lakh

  3. Gains: Rs 34.05 lakh

Benefits of using SIP Return calculator

Power of compounding

SIP allows you to compound your investments. Compounding generates when your returns on the investments generate more returns. It is a simple and significant concept in investing. SIP helps you to invest a regular amount every month in a mutual fund scheme that generates more returns.


Low initial investment

With INDmoney’s SIP calculator, you can invest any amount you like as per your financial situation. You can invest as low as INR 500 per month and as high as you want. You can start with a low investment to see how your investments earn returns in the beginning and can gradually increase the amount.


Convenience

Another essential point is that SIP is both easy and convenient through INDmoney’s application. You are not required to keep track of market trends, don't have to research, and analyze the market situations for investments, unlike other investment options. You just have to pick a good fund and start your investments through SIP. You will receive notifications and updates about the investment in the app itself.

SIP calculator is a metric that allows investors and individuals to estimate the mutual fund returns on the investments made using the SIP (Systematic Investment Plan).

Using the SIP calculator is very easy and convenient to calculate the returns on mutual funds investments. You are required to enter several metrics to find the exact return, such as the investment amount, duration of the investment, frequency of the investment, and the expected returns.

Weekly SIPs will help the user to average out her cost in a better way, and navigate volatile markets in a smoother manner. It is suitable for users who wish to create long-term wealth in the market by staying invested for longer periods of time and with a higher frequency of investments. The user faces lower volatility, and generates potentially higher return in the market as compared to users with monthly SIPs. Hence, weekly SIPs could be an excellent alternative to monthly SIPs. 

Let us look at an example to understand this better. Mr X invests in mutual funds through weekly SIPs of Rs 5,000. Mr Y invests Rs 20,000 through monthly SIPs. Assume that the time horizon is one year. Here’s the difference between the two investments. 

FV in case of Mr X: Rs 2.75 lakh

FV in case of Mr Y: Rs 2.53 lakh

Notice that difference in amount for Mr X. This is because the total amount invested through weekly SIPs is Rs 2.60 lakh (52 weeks * 5,000), while that invested through monthly SIP is Rs 2.4 lakh (20,000*12). An additional investment of Rs 20,000 in the case of Mr X has yielded a higher return.

Taxation of SIPs depends on whether you have invested in Equity or Debt Investments and the tenure for which the investment has been made. The table below explains the taxation of mutual fund SIPs made in various funds.

Fund TypeHolding Period for Long TermShort TermLong Term
Equity1 year15%10% if LTCG during the year exceed Rs. 1 lakh. LTCG less than Rs. 1 lakh are exempt from taxation.
Hybrid FundsMore than 65% Equity: as equity, else like debtinvested in equity, taxation same as equity funds. taxed like debt funds.
Debt3 yearsSlab rate

Let us take some examples to understand the taxation on equity funds.

Rajesh does an SIP into a equity fund on 1st January 2022. The details are as follows:

SIP amount Rs 5,000.

Return: 12% per annum

Start Date: Jan 1, 2022

Selling off date: The entire amount is redeemed on 2nd Jan, 2023.

For the purpose of taxation, each SIP is considered as a fresh investment. Hence, only on the first SIP made on Jan 1, 2022, Rajesh will have to pay Long-term capital gains (exempt up to Rs 1 lakh). For every subsequent investment, STCG is applicable)

The goal of the SIP calculator is to determine the monthly SIP investments in the mutual funds.

  1. Small money can be invested:  Investors can start a SIP even Rs 500 in mutual funds, which is not possible in case you want to invest in shares. Shares of some of the listed companies trade at higher prices, which can't be owned by small investing directly with small amounts.
  2. Disciplined investing:  SIP instil discipline into investors by committing to invest a predefined amount at regular intervals which is essential for building wealth in the long-term.
  3. No need to worry about market volatility:  Investors receive more units when the NAV of a mutual funds fall and less units when NAV of mutual funds rise. Therefore, over a long period of time the cost of units to investors will be significantly lower despite ups and downs. This phenomenon is called Rupee cost averaging.
  4. Flexibility:  Investors have the flexibility to decide the SIP amount, period and interval of SIP as per their convenience.
  5. Offers diversification at small investment:  Investors can't diversify their portfolio with small investment surplus. But with mutual funds, they can get a diversified portfolio, even with investment of Rs 500.
  6. Professional management of investments:  Mutual funds are managed by knowledgeable and disciplined fund managers. Investors generally don't have in-depth knowledge of investing.
  7. Power of compounding:  Investors can stay invested in mutual funds for a longer period of time. Compounding is a phenomenon wherein over a period of time returns get added to corpus and this in return generates more return. This phenomenon leads to an exponential growth of corpus.

INDmoney’s daily SIP calculator enables users to plan their investments and meet their future financial goals.

The daily SIP calculator provides immense benefits. It helps users to estimate the future value of Daily SIP investments in mutual funds given a rate of return and time horizon.

The daily SIP calculator is a very simple to use tool. One can use it by following the steps mentioned below: 

Step1: In the calculator, choose the SIP tab

Step 2: Choose the frequency as Daily

Step 3: Input the Daily SIP amount

Step 4: Choose the expected return

Step 5: Choose the time period

Step 6: Now, you should be able to see: 

  1. Total amount invested over this period
  2. Future value of your SIP
  3. Total gains

The formula used in the Daily SIP calculator to calculate the expected returns is as follows:

FV = P [ (1+i) ^ n-1] * (1+i) / i

FV = Future value or the amount you will receive at the time of maturity of the investment.

P = Principal amount you invested through SIP 

i = Compounded rate of return

r = Expected rate of return

n = Investment duration

The inputs have to be adjusted to reflect the frequency as daily. While r is the return estimate yearly, i = r/365 gives the daily return estimate. Similarly, n is adjusted as 365* the number of years to reflect the number of periods.

The formula used in the Weekly SIP calculator to calculate the expected returns is as follows:

FV = P [ (1+i) ^ n-1] * (1+i) / i

FV = Future value or the amount you will receive at the time of maturity of the investment.

P = Principal amount you invested through SIP 

i = Compounded rate of return

r = Expected rate of return

n = Investment duration

The inputs have to be adjusted to reflect the frequency as weekly While r is the return estimate yearly, i = r/52 gives the weekly return estimate. Similarly, n is adjusted as 52* the number of years to reflect the number of periods.

The daily SIP calculator estimates the future value of investment in case a user is investing in mutual fund SIPs on a daily basis. The weekly SIP calculator enables the user to calculate the future value of investment in case the investment is made into MF SIPs on a weekly basis.

Daily SIPs are suitable for users who have surplus money and would like to stagger their investments in a better way. It will help the investor to invest small amounts into the market to avoid heavy drawdowns in case of market downturns. Hence, they will ensure that the user faces lower volatility, and generates potentially higher return in the market as compared to users with weekly or monthly SIPs. Hence, Daily SIPs could be an excellent alternative to monthly SIPs. 

Let us look at an example to understand this better. Mr X invests in mutual funds through daily SIPs of Rs 1,000. Mr Y invests Rs 30,000 through monthly SIPs. Assume that the time horizon is one year. Here’s the difference between the two investments. 

FV in case of Mr X: Rs 3.87 lakh

FV in case of Mr Y: Rs 3.80 lakh

Notice that difference in amount for Mr Y. This is because the total amount invested through daily SIPs is Rs 3.65 lakh, while that invested through monthly SIP is Rs 3.60 lakh (30,000*12). An additional investment of Rs 5,000 in the case of Mr X has yielded a higher return.

Weekly SIPs will help the user to average out her cost in a better way, and navigate volatile markets in a smoother manner. It is suitable for users who wish to create long-term wealth in the market by staying invested for longer periods of time and with a higher frequency of investments. The user faces lower volatility, and generates potentially higher return in the market as compared to users with monthly SIPs. Hence, weekly SIPs could be an excellent alternative to monthly SIPs. 

Let us look at an example to understand this better. Mr X invests in mutual funds through weekly SIPs of Rs 5,000. Mr Y invests Rs 20,000 through monthly SIPs. Assume that the time horizon is one year. Here’s the difference between the two investments. 

FV in case of Mr X: Rs 2.75 lakh

FV in case of Mr Y: Rs 2.53 lakh

Notice that difference in amount for Mr X. This is because the total amount invested through weekly SIPs is Rs 2.60 lakh (52 weeks * 5,000), while that invested through monthly SIP is Rs 2.4 lakh (20,000*12). An additional investment of Rs 20,000 in the case of Mr X has yielded a higher return.
