    Dividend Policy of the HDFC Hybrid Equity Fund - Dividend Option

    The right of declaring the dividends for the dividend option of the scheme is held by the trustee. The availability will be based on the basis of the availability of the surplus which is eligible for distribution under the scheme. On the declaration of dividends, it will be paid to the unitholders whose names are registered in the Register of Unitholders on the date of record. The Depositories (NSDL/CDSL) will be providing a list of demat account holders along with the number of units that are held by them in case the units are held in dematerialised mode. This list will be generated in electronic form on the date of record. It will be issued for the Transfer Agent and Registrars of the Mutual Fund who will be eligible to receive the dividends. The interim dividend might also be declared by the trustee at its sole discretion. However, it is to be kept in mind that the distributable surplus will be calculated as per the SEBI (MF) Regulations and the declaration of distribution of dividend and the frequency for that will be based on the regulations. In this regard, the decision taken by the trustee or the asset management company (AMC) will be the final decision.

    The rate of dividend or the frequency of distribution of the same is not assured to the unitholders. In case the dividends are paid out, the Net Asset Value (NAV) of the units will be reduced by the amount of dividend and applicable dividend tax or statutory levy. The rights for altering the date of record is also held by the trustee or the asset management company (AMC).
