Why should I invest through a Systematic Investment Plan (SIP)?
Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) is the most convenient way of automating your Investments to help you meet your Goals. SIP helps you to further reduce your risk related to market volatility by investing at different market levels. SIPs can begin as low as Rs. 1000/- per month.
What is Top-Up Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) and how does it work?
Top-Up SIP helps you to meet your goal by gradually increasing monthly SIP amount each year if you are unable to start your required SIP today. At the end of each year, we will remind you to confirm your decision to increase the SIP. Here is an example :
1st Year 2nd Year 3rd Year 4th Year 5th Year 6th Year
Monthly SIP required (for your goal) 5,000 5,000 5,000 5,000 5,000 5,000
Monthly SIP started (actual) 2,000 2,000 3,000 4,000 5,000 6,000
Top-Up SIP Required - 1,000 1,000 1,000 1,000 1,000
Total Monthly SIP Required 2,000 3,000 4,000 5,000 6,000 7,000
What if I don't want to commit to an increase in Top-Up SIP next year right now?
The projected calculation of SIP is just to give you an overview of how you can achieve your goal. You may opt to implement it after one year if you wish. We will remind you when Top-Up SIP is due, at which point you may choose to increase the SIP amount.
What kind of goals do people generally have?
Generally, people set goals specific to their needs and aspirations. The most common ones include Children's Education & Marriage, Retirement, Family Health Corpus, buying a House and planning a Vacation. Donating to or setting up a charity also ranks highly on a lot of people's goals.

The schemes are recommended to you taking into account the time frame and risk potential of your investments. Basic data about the scheme is available against the scheme and additional information is available for download via a link. No one recommended scheme is better than any other; all schemes are equally suitable to add to your portfolio.
Does my Bank levy any charges to register my mandate?
Your Bank may charge a nominal, one time fee to register the mandate.
Why do I need to give a cancelled cheque as part of my registration process?
The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) regulations require us to verify that the bank account used for investment actually belongs to you i.e. the person making the investment. They also prohibit Third Party transactions. Hence, a cancelled cheque in original with your name printed on it needs to be submitted during the registration process. If your name is not printed on the cheque, please attach a bank statement not older than 3 months (self-attested).
What is the maximum number of joint holders or nominees I can add to my account?
Each account can have only one joint holder and one nominee. These can be decided at the time of registration and cannot be changed at a later date.
What is NACH Mandate?
The NACH Mandate is like a Bank Mandate that you provide your Bank with. It authorizes them to transfer the Systematic Investment Plan (SIP) amount planned by you directly to the Mutual Fund House.
What is KYC?
"Know Your Customer" or KYC is a term commonly used for the Customer Identification Process. Prescribed by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), KYC norms for Financial Institutions and Financial Intermediaries including Mutual Funds are put in place to 'know' one's clients. This would be in the form of verification of identity and address, financial status, occupation and other such demographic information. With effect from 1st January 2012, all categories of investors, irrespective of amount of investments in Mutual Funds are required to comply with KYC for carrying out any transactions in Mutual Funds. Thus, any investor (all applicants in a folio) investing into mutual funds would be required to be KYC compliant by any KYC Rating Agency (CVL, NSE, NSDL, CAMS or KARVY) without which the transactions may be liable to be rejected by the respective Mutual Fund houses. KYC norms are mandatory for ALL applicants/investors (including existing investors and joint holders) while investing with any SEBI registered Mutual Fund, irrespective of the amount of investment. This one-time verification is valid for transactions across all mutual funds.
What is FATCA?
FATCA (short for Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act) is a regulation created by the US Government to curb tax evasion by US citizens. Under this regulation, assets held by US citizens in other countries now have to be reported to the US government.
What is Bank Mandate?
Bank mandate is a secure option that enables your SIP investments with ease and minimal effort on your part. All Mutual Fund companies use this option to help you transact the SIP Investments.
What if I have insufficient bank balance on the debit date?
Failure to pay an installment will not result in any charges or penalties from HappnessFactory.in or your Asset Management Company (AMC). However, your bank may charge for failed mandate payments.
I am not a US citizen, why do I have to provide FATCA information?
As a result of India signing a reciprocal agreement with the US government to share information acquired through the FATCA of each other's citizens, all financial institutions (such as Mutual Funds) have to identify the citizenship and tax status of investors and provide necessary information to the government.
How long will the process of document registration take?
If no discrepancies are found, the validation of KYC documents takes 2 business days and that of the NACH mandate takes between 10-15 business days.
How do I declare FATCA information?
Declaration is done by filling the FATCA form as a part of the Investor Details Page while registering on the HappynessFactory.in website.
How do I add a joint holder or nominee to my account?
