How can one invest in a mutual fund? (Fresh Purchase)
After deciding on the type of scheme, the investor will have to fill in the Application form, attach a payment instrument and submit it at any of the funds' official points of acceptance centers before the cut off time. .
 
The investor has to invest in rupees and units will be allotted to him in fractions depending upon the NAV.
 
For example, if the sale price of Birla Advantage Fund was Rs. 23.49 on December 14, 2001, if the investor decides to invest Rs. 25,000 (a round sum) on December 14, 2001, given the price, he will be allotted 1064.2826 units (25,000/23.49). This calculation assumes that there is no sales load applicable to the investor. It is also important to know that the applicable NAV is known only at the end of the day and not at the time the investor hands in the application.
 
For investments equal to and exceeding Rs 50,000, providing the Permanent Account Number (PAN) for all the unit holders is mandatory. Additionally, a copy of the PAN card should also be submitted along with the application form for verification. Investors have also to comply with the Know Your Client (KYC) procedure for such investment amounts.
What is the procedure to BUY ADDITIONAL units? (Additional Purchase)
Buying more units either of the same scheme or of a different scheme under the SAME FOLIO is an additional purchase, which can be done through Additional Purchase slips provided along with the account statement. After filling the same, the investor will have to attach a cheque with it and submit it at any of the official points of acceptance centers before the cut-off time.
What is the procedure to SWITCH units?
A switch request will have to be filled in and submitted at any of the official points of acceptance centers before the cut off time. SWITCH can be done with either partial or all units under a particular scheme to another scheme as specified by him under the same folio.
What is the procedure to REDEEM / REPURCHASE units?
If the fund is open ended, the investor has to send the repurchase requisition slip, duly completed and signed, to any of the official points of acceptance centres. It is possible to lodge repurchase requests on the Internet also. The redemption can be done for all units, partial units, or for an amount.
 
Redemption proceeds can be either be directly credited to the investors account OR cheques are issued with the investors bank details printed on them mandatorily. This is to prevent fraudulent encashment of repurchase cheques.
Can I take loan against my units in Mutual Fund? What is a Lien?
Yes. Investors can take loan against units. Banks treat Units as collateral security.
 
Units of a scheme may be offered as security by way of a pledge / charge in favor of scheduled banks, financial institutions, non banking financial companies (NBFCs) or any other body. The AMC will note and record such Pledged Units. Disbursement of such loans will be entirely at the discretion of the bank / financial institution / NBFC and the Mutual Fund assumes no responsibility thereof..
REQUIREMENTS for LIEN Marking:
Letter from investor and Pledgee clearly stating - Folio / Sub-account number, Scheme / Plan, Number of Units to be pledged, any other terms.
 
Additional Information :
 
  1. Lien marking requests need to necessarily specify number of units to be pledged. The reason for specifying this is the possibility of erosion in value of investment consequent to market action.
  2. Lien marking may be for partial number of units held - request for lien marking NEED NOT necessarily be for all units.
  3. In case of lien-marking of PARTIAL units, investor is free to transact (redeem / shift) on "free units"
  4. Investor will not be permitted to transact on units that are lien marked unless and until instructions to un-mark lien is given by the Pledgee.
  5. While units are lien marked, in case investments are under Dividend option, in case of corporate action, dividend will be paid to investor unless specifically instructed by pledgee in instructions to pledge units.
Once the units are LIEN marked the units become the property of the bank until such time that the lien is invoked. The investor cannot redeem these units unless the bank confirms to do so. Once the loan is repaid by the investor, the units will become free from lien.
 
For unmarking of lien, written request from the bank is mandatory. The possible scenarios under which the unmarking of lien request can be received
 
  1. Pledgee has requested for unmarking of lien with / without redemption of units (full / partial) in favour of pledge
  2. Pledgee has requested for unmarking of lien with the concurrence to redeem the units (full / partial) in favour of investor (as per investor's redemption request).
