So what are the fees? How do they cover their expenses?

Does account opening requires any paper work?

No fees! It is a portal by AMFI! Why should they ask for fees for their own product? Different mutual fund houses have joined together to give a common platform for investors. That's it. Zero paper work.
1. Open a e-CAN online
2. Upload KYC Documents
Once the CAN is approved ask for online access.
Start investing!

First of all, thanks a lot for all of you. Your patience is appreciated.

Effectively, it's better to buy Direct MFs from MF Utility than from Zerodha. Right?

MF Utility keeps evolving. The recently released CaST (Create and Schedule Transactions) and CaRT (Create and Retain Transactions) are very useful. These features have been rolled out in the mobile app (Available for Android & iOS) as well.

MFU is a group of Mutual Fund Houses formed to facilitate investors to buy Direct Plans of all the constituent MF Houses under a single umbrella.
Although these are direct plans, yet there are certain expenses incurred for the management of the funds. This is reflected in the Expense Ratio of the respective funds. One would see that the expense ratio of Direct Plans is much lesser than that of the corresponding Distributours routed Plans or the General Growth/Dividend Plans. Part of these expenses recovered from the investors is pooled in to manage MFU.

Yes please. Buying from MF Utility is better because you get the support of CAMS, Karvy, etc. if needed.

Is it advisable to invest in liquid funds or ultra short interval debt funds instead of losing interest in a savings account ? Any suggestions on rate of return in these schemes

Yes. Especially when savings account interest has come down to 3.5% now.

Liquid funds typically are giving a return of 6-6.5%.
USB funds are giving 7-8% returns. USB funds may have an exit load.
