Mutual Fund (MF) ASBA mandatory from 1st October 2010 and not from 1st July

Sub: Additional mode of payment through Applications Supported by Blocked Amount (hereinafter referred to as “ASBA”) in Mutual Funds

ASBA is already available for subscription to public  issue & rights issue of equity and now it is extended to the investors subscribing to New Fund Offers (NFOs) of mutual fund schemes. It shall co-exist with the current process, wherein cheques/ demand drafts are used as a mode of payment. The banks which are in SEBI’s list shall extend the same facility in case of NFOs of mutual fund schemes to all eligible investors in Mutual Fund units. Mutual Funds shall ensure that adequate arrangements are made by Registrar and Transfer Agents (RTA) for the implementation of ASBA. Mutual Funds/AMCs shall make all relevant disclosures in this regard in the SAI. Also read [SEBI-ASBA] Lets Learn the Concept.

Please refer to circular SEBI / IMD / Cir / No 18 / 198647 / 2010 dated March 15, 2010 regarding additional mode of payments through ASBA in Mutual Funds. The circular indicated that the Mutual Funds/AMCs have to compulsorily provide ASBA facility to the investors for all NFOs launched on or after July 01, 2010.

In partial modification of the above circular, it has been decided that Mutual Funds / AMCs shall provide ASBA facility to investors for all NFOs launched on or after October 1, 2010.
