Hot money tips: The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) had introduced graded exit loads on debt funds from October 20, 2019. The load falls from 0.007 per cent on the first day to 0.0045 per cent on the sixth day from the date of investment. There is no exit load from the seventh day onwards.
Speaking on the SEBI guidelines on exit load in debt funds Omkeshwar Singh, Head - Rank MF, Samco Securities said, "The idea behind the introduction of exit loads on investments in debt funds is to shift the short-term money to overnight funds. The move is aimed at deterring corporates from using liquid funds to park their money for very short periods. Big purchases and redemptions from corporates can amplify the risk in these funds for retail investors, especially in times of poor liquidity or credit concerns in the debt market. It is therefore positive for a retail investor as it lowers the chance of volatility caused by big flows in liquid fund returns."
