Frequenctly Asked Questions:
If I have chosen SIP, will it automatically invest more into my smallcase?

What are the charges for starting SIP?
There are no additional smallcase charges for starting SIP
Can I start SIP for my saved smallcases?
You can start SIP only on smallcases that you have purchased. In order to start SIP for a saved smallcase, you would need to primarily purchase the smallcase and then start SIP for that smallcase
What is the amount I can invest through SIP?
The amount you can invest through SIP for a smallcase would be the same as the minimum investment amount for the smallcase at that point of time (since this is a real time figure). This amount cannot be altered
