Tracking error

The tracking error chart shows how the fund ‘tracks’ against the index. The higher the TE, the more active the fund’s return has been, with the 3-6% range considered to be barely active, >6% range considered to be reasonably active and anything higher attributed to concentrated/focused funds. Funds with TE of less than 3% can be considered to be closet indexers.

Tracking Error of this fund is more than 2.5%. it is always between 2.5% to 4.5%. so, it is not an ideal fund.
