What is Open Ended Mutual Funds?
Open–ended schemes usually do not have a fixed maturity period and are available for subscription and redemption on an ongoing basis. The units can be bought and sold any time during the life of the scheme at NAV related prices. When you are selling the units, there is certain amount will be deducted as the exit load.
What is Close Ended Mutual Funds?
Close ended funds are Equity Linked Savings Scheme(ELSS) where you can not sell the units with in the three years period. These funds are issued only at the time of New Fund Offer(NFO). You acn not buy the units in the open market. That means your investment has the lock in period of three years.
