If you hold the units for more than three years, the gains are subject to Long-Term Capital Gains Tax which is taxed at 20% and you would get the benefit of indexation (available to debt funds). Indexation accounts for the effect of inflation in the acquisition purchase cost i.e. the purchase price is increased to adjust for inflation (using an index provided by the Government) before calculating the capital gain.
