I want to know if this is a good time to invest in mutual funds? If yes, which large cap mutual fund I can invest Rs 1,500-2,000 per month? I have an investment period of 15 to 20 years. I am expecting to create around Rs 30 lakh.

The stock market has fallen by 30% in the last one month. So, in a sense, it is a good time to invest in mutual funds gradually through an SIP. And large cap mutual funds ideal to bet at this point as these schemes invest in very large companies that are more resilient to volatility in the market. Here are our recommended large cap mutual funds: Best large cap mutual funds

You have unrealistic expectations from your investments. Assuming an annual return of 12%, you would be able to create a corpus of Rs 19.9 lakh at the end of 20 years by investing Rs 2,000 every month.

If you are new to mutual funds, you should consult a mutual fund advisor before starting your investments. The market might fall further or get volatile, you need to stay invested for a long period to create wealth over the long term. An advisor near you would guide you through such turbulent times.
