    Any mutual fund scheme that allows the investor to invest directly with the Asset Management Company (AMC) is called the Direct Plan of that scheme. There is no broker or a distributor involved in a direct plan. As per rules and regulations issued by the SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India), as a mandate, all mutual fund schemes have to offer the direct plan option to its investors/applicants.
