Not long ago, there was a time when SIP were not charged any entry loads. A couple of years ago some fund houses started charging loads.
Now different funds charge different rates for SIP as a load. Some charge NIL load while others charge almost the full entry load of 2.5% as that of normal purchase.
Although this amount or percentage may look small, it may add up to a significant amount . The returns you get out of the fund will come down to this extent.
