So again which Mutual Funds are most advisable to invest in 2013?

Ok,You're a beginner. You couldn't figure out much from the table at the top.
I will mention 3 current mutual funds here, that are giving relevantly good returns in the market.

IDFC Premier Equity Growth Plan A Growth

This was launched in September 2005. Till now ( from the past 6 year ), the the fund have given a return of 22.84%. For the past 5 years the fund have given 27.39 % yearly return. Keep in mind that, for people who have invested directly in shares have got only 11.41 % yearly profit.

HDFC Top 200 Growth

The fund was launched in 1996 September. It has been giving 24.8 % yearly profit for the past 15 years. For the past 5 years the investors in this mutual fund got 19.43 % yearly profit.

HDFC Equity Fund Growth

The HDFC Equity Fund Growth mutual fund was started functioning in 1995 September. Along the 16 long years the investors have got 22.43 % returns. For the past 5 years the investors in this fund got a return of 19.37 %.

Investing in Mutual funds is a great way to get higher profit for smaller risk. However, your money in invested in specific companies only after careful analysis and interpolation of its growth potential. We as an individual, can never achieve such accuracy upto the finest detail better than the group of experts managing the mutual fund portfolio. This doesn't mean I am explicitly supporting any mutual fund company, it's just that the fundamental concept of mutual funds indicate a group of people managing a portfolio for a group of people eventually is eventually better than a single person managing his own portfolio and the charge paid for these group of people gets negligibly/relatively small when the number of investor participation increase.

      Hi Ajith, if you want to select a large cap fund, go for DSP Black Rock top-100 fund because it is a top rated and top performing fund over the last 5 years . If you still have questions, please let me know clearly what sort of diversification you want to achieve? so that we can discuss.

      How about adding ETF's in the list, I love Benchmark Gold ETF. A great list nonetheless, my fav is HDFC growth, considering other subjective factors like Fund Managers etc.
