In case of breach of Rs 20 crore limit, the AMC will have to scale up the AUM of such scheme within a period of six months.

Sebi also has set minimum new fund offer limits for debt and equity schemes and in process raised the minimum Rs 10 crore limit in NFO to Rs 20 crore now for debt oriented and balanced Schemes.

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.
