<p>Income fund investors in India are going through trying times. Over the last
two years, tens of thousands of people have invested in this type of mutual
fund. They have been attracted to these funds because they seem to combine high
safety with reasonably high returns.</p>
<p>For investors scared by big losses from the stockmarkets and equity funds,
this was an irresistible combination. Not surprisingly, the amount of money
invested in income funds over the last two years has gone up from Rs 24,000
crore to Rs 64,000 crore.</p>
<p>Now however, income investors are a worried lot. Since January, investments
in many of these funds have lost up to 3 or even 4 per cent of their value.
At Value Research, we have received hundreds of emails from worried investors
who are doubtful of the safety and future of income funds.</p>
<p>What has gone wrong with India's income funds? Is this decline something
exceptional, or is it a normal part of the financial markets' volatility?
Will income funds ever again give the kind of returns that they have been giving?
What should investors do to avoid such problems in the future?</p>
<p>In the March 15 issue of our magazine, <strong>Mutual Funds Insight</strong>,
we answer these questions in our cover story, '<strong>Surviving Income Fund
Chaos</strong>'. The story explains everything that an investor needs to know
about the performance and the future of Indian income funds.</p>
<p>Besides the cover story, we have all our regular features like Category Review
(on Hybrid Funds), Fund Family (DSP Merrill Lynch), fund manager interview (Sundaram's
Anand Radhakrishnan), as well as columns by Paranjoy Guha Thakurta, Ashish Ghiya,
and Jay Dubashi.</p>
<p>And as always, our Value Research Scorecard is the most authoritative source
of information on more than 400 funds in India.</p>
