smallcases are nothing but baskets of stocks bought & managed together

The same taxation guidelines that apply for stocks apply for smallcases as you're eventually holding them in single stocks format

If you sell your smallcase stock investments after 12 months of buying, your investments would qualify for long-term capital gains tax which is 0

If you sell your smallcase stocks before 12 months of holding, you will have to pay a short-term capital gains tax at the rate of 15% on the profits made (not applicable on losses)

Dividends on stocks are tax-free in the investor's' hands
