How does SWP work?

Let say if you have a corpus of Rs 10 lakh invested in a mutual fund and wish to withdraw Rs 6,000 every month, here is how it works

Date Opening Balance (Units) NAV Total Amount Units Redeemed Closing Balance
01 Apr Rs. 10,00,00 100 Rs. 10,00,000.00 60.00 (6000/100) Rs. 9,940.00
01 May Rs. 9,940.00 105 Rs. 10,43,700.00 57.14 (6000/105) Rs. 9,882.86
01 June Rs. 9,882.86 103 Rs. 10,17,934.58 58.25 (6000/103) Rs. 9,824.61

The above data is for illustrations purpose only to explain the concept.

When the market rises, although you have withdrawn Rs 18,000 in 3 months, you still benefit on the balance part of your investment.

The icing on the cake is when the money is invested in an equity-oriented fund, it has the potential to beat inflation and create long-term wealth. Therefore, a SWP is more beneficial than just simply withdrawing money from savings corpus.
