The choice between liquid funds and debt funds can be a tricky one. Both are fixed-income securities and long-term capital gain from them is taxed at a flat 20% after indexation. You can consider consulting a mutual fund advisor to understand these funds in detail.
However, it is advisable that you also have the basic knowledge of these funds to make an informed choice. Here are some major differences between both funds.
Debt funds are an investment option available in a mutual fund scheme. They invest money in assets such as government bonds, money market instruments, and corporate bonds.
Liquid funds are a class of debt funds. They invest money in assets such as treasury bills, commercial paper, and government securities.
