CPSE ETF offers tax benefits as the scheme is in compliance with the provisions of Rajiv Gandhi Equity Savings Scheme, 2013 (RGESS).

 

The CPSE Index constituents are as follows: Oil & Natural Gas Corporation Ltd (ONGC), GAIL (India) Ltd, Coal India Ltd, Rural Electrification Corporation Ltd (REC), Oil India Ltd, Indian Oil Corporation Ltd (IOC), Power Finance Corporation Ltd (PFC), Container Corporation of India Ltd (ConCor), Bharat Electronics Ltd (BEL) and Engineers India Ltd.

Govt has appointed Gold man sachs AMC for this fund which is a big big
mistake. I find that the main intention behind the contents of instructions
appended to application form for CPSE fund seems to be to disssuade people from
applying. It is made so comlicated and so customer-unfriendly that it is
difficult even for me to understand even though I have been applying for mutual
funds for the last 15 years. It seems Goldman Sachs is not familiar with the
requirements of indian i nvestors..There is no hint of where to find application form or where to submit the same. There is no simple instruction on what all documents are required. It is really complicated and I would be surprised if they get enough subscription from retail individual investors
