Which one is preferred for peformance comparison direct or regular

Want to invest through direct plan only.

Is it advisable to compare the return performance of any fund using regular plan scheme because in regular plan annual return data is available for 10+ years while in direct plan it is available for mostly 3-5 yr so that one can have better idea regarding performance of that fund in longer period?..just for comparison within same category…


Hi Pankaj,

If you really want to analyze the impact of investing in any equity fund over a long period of time then it would make sense to compare the the data for regular funds since there is no NAV available for direct plans for more than 5 years.
