Scheduled Transaction (SPP/SRP/SSP) FAQs

  • What is Scheduled Transaction?

    Schedule Transaction is a facility where a Distributor / RIA / Investor can schedule a transaction to be executed on a defined future date to better manage future cash flow situations. This facility allows you to create a Scheduled Purchase Plan (SPP); Scheduled Redemption Plan (SRP); and Scheduled Switch Plan (SSP) For e.g.

    • If some funds are expected to be available for investment on a future date, a purchase transaction can be scheduled to be executed on an appropriate date to utilise those funds using this facility OR create a Schedule Purchase Plan (SPP) for repetitive purchase transactions instead of SIP.
    • If there is a planned cash out flow (payments like EMI, rent, premium etc.) on a future date, a redemption transaction can be scheduled to be executed on an appropriate date OR create a Schedule Redemption Plan (SRP) for repetitive withdrawals instead of SWP.
    • If you intend to switch your investment from one scheme to another scheme on a future date a switch transaction can be scheduled to be executed on an appropriate date OR create a Schedule Switch Plan (SSP) for repetitive Switches instead of STP

    Execution mode is based on ONE TIME investor approval during Scheduled trigger registration. Transaction will get executed on the trigger date once conditions are met.

    If the Trigger transaction was initiated by Distributor / RIA, email intimation will also be sent to them on the trigger date. This will help them to approach investor to act on execution link before it expires.

    The trigger will happen once ONLY on the first instance of the event happening. The trigger registration will expire upon being accepted or rejected or at the end of the chosen period whichever is earlier.

  • What happens if I do not act when I get the trigger email?

    In case of Alert mode if you do not act on the execution link on the trigger date, the transaction will not be executed, and the registration stands cancelled.
