Note: Domestic index funds tracking broad indices like the Nifty 50 or Sensex will generally not be found in a table of worst performing mutual funds. Since index funds give “average” return, their position will always be above the worst performers in their respective category. For the same reason, they will not be found in the best performing fund lists as well.

The fund categories in this article are as per AMFI classification. The performance figures are from AMFI website. All funds in this article are of the Direct Growth Category: Do not make this mistake when investing in mutual funds.
