    Debt funds have two returns combined into one :
    1. The return of interest payouts on investments done by the fund
    2. Capital gain on investments due to movement of interest rate in the economy.

    The return on point 1 is generally between 8-12%. However, point 2 tends to fluctuate the overall return of a debt fund from being negative to over 20%. In the current economic situation, I would expect debt funds to give a return of around 9-12% over next 1 year.

    There is generally no lock in period for debt funds. However, there would be an exit load of around 1% if you sell before 1 year.

    You won’t get any dividend if the fund doesn’t declare any. However, generally the fund ends up declaring dividend based upon your dividend frequency.
