When will this etf will get listed on nse??


Stay away from PSU ETFs guys. The govt plans to take your money to put in the sick companies basically due to poor management. You won’t get that growth in these ETFs. Check the status of Bharat22 ETF since its launch a year back. Better to invest in Nifty50 ETF if you invest in ETF.


Fully agree…always invest in junior nifty / nifty etf

CPSE ETF has been a laggard look at the performance for over last 3year 4.25% without dividend, as it’s only available with “GROWTH” option - Any dividend payed-out is (added) shown in NAV.

JUNIORBEES is available as ETF. There are index funds (MF) as well…


Junior bees has dividend distribution tax. Not cool. Index funds are far more better.


Index fund and etf are similar na


no taxes on ETF…negligible STT & transaction cost as


How do I confirm if I have received an allotment? The Kite interface stills hows my funds intact, and does not show any deductions.

If the order is being processed, is there a way to cancel it?


We upload the orders on Nov 30th and the fund will be deducted from your trading account. You’ll receive an email from us with the confirmation.


Will we get allotment today?

Will we get interest on money paid from 30th nov till the day of crediting units to demat?
