It has also set a minimum subscription amount of Rs 20 crore for debt oriented and balanced schemes at the time of new fund offer (NFO). For other schemes it shall be at least Rs 10 crore, Sebi said. Mutual funds have to report compliance of the new AUM limit to Sebi in the half yearly trustee reports.
