Mutual funds -- a pool of money collected from many investors to invest in stocks, bonds, money market instruments, and other assets-- in India ended June 2019 with record money under management. The inflow into these funds were ₹107 billion, the highest in the last seven months.
People invest in mutual funds in India for financial security, to grow their wealth as well as to save on taxes. The Indian government allows a rebate on income tax on money invested in mutual funds up to a maximum of ₹150,000 a year to every individual under section 80C of the Income Tax Act.
The amount of money coming into mutual funds had slowed down in the last few months as investors became wary of betting more money in the market for a variety of reasons-- from slowing economy to the risk of elections to growing global tensions, both geopolitical and economic.
People who have been investing in systematic investment plans -- small monthly investments-- continued their practice. However, new signings have been lower four out of the last six months showing that there is still palpable fear among investors.
