Clearing & Settlement - MFs

The settlement for Mutual Funds Service System is carried out by NSCCL through the depository and bank interface.The clearing and settlement mechanism provides for settlement of funds and mutual fund units in case of subscription and redemption orders. The transfer of funds and units in respect of redemptions and subscriptions, respectively, is effected to the broker/Clearing Members' settlement / pool account. Investors receive redemption amount (if units are redeemed) and units (if units are purchased) through broker/clearing members' pool account.

All requests for subscription and redemption are settled on individual basis and only to the extent of the funds/units paid in by participants/clients on the settlement day. Receipt and transfer of funds and units for subscription are done on a T+1 day basis. . Receipt and transfer of mutual fund units for redemption is done on T day and is conducted for units in dematerialised form only. The transfer of funds for redemption is carried out on a T+1 , T+2, T+3, T+4, T+5, T+6 and T+7 basis depending upon the category of funds.

The settlement cycles are in accordance with the settlement schedules issued by NSCCL from time to time.
