  1. Thanks for sharing the list of eligible stocks & MFs.

    I would like to know
    1.which segment is the best option to invest? (ETF/ Stocks / Mutual Fund)
    2. Is it advisable to invest in parts in all the three?

    1. It depends on your risk profile. Stocks are riskier than MFs & ETFs. Also you need expertise to select the right stocks. Assuming that this is your first tryst with stock market I would recommend to go with ETF and/or Mutual funds.

    1. Ranjit As far as the process of investing goes, I have already mentioned it in one of my post. Click to read. In case you have any specific query do let me know.
