Booster STP stands for systematic transfer scheme. The person holding the unit can transfer a variable amount from one scheme to another scheme. This transfer can be done at defined intervals.

If in March 2022, the UEUBAF level is 34 per cent and the investor has selected the base amount for the booster STP scheme as Rs. 10000. Then, the investor can transfer Rs. 4000 to the target scheme from the source scheme on the STP date in April 2022. The Booster STP instalments will be paid monthly and the minimum instalments can be 6 instalments.
