If you have a lump sum amount and want to transfer that amount over a period of time to Equity Funds, Systematic Transfer Plan (STP) is the most suitable option for you. Under a mutual fund Systematic Transfer Plan (STP), a lump sum amount you invested in one scheme can be transferred at regular intervals systematically in a piecemeal manner into another mutual fund scheme (as desired by you) of the same mutual fund house. Most fund houses have a daily, monthly, weekly, and quarterly option to transfer money. But not all offer the weekly option – only a handful of them do. Moreover, different fund houses have different requirements for the minimum amount invested through STP.
