Domestic mutual fund schemes must include a clear and well-defined classification of large-cap, mid-cap, and small-cap equities, according to the market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).
According to the Association of Mutual Funds in India (Amfi), the cutoff market cap for becoming a largecap business is Rs 37,746.26 crore, up from Rs 28,900.31 crore in January. Similarly, the limit for being classified as a midcap business was Rs 11,820.07 crore as opposed to Rs 8,389.68 crore. Amfi announces share reclassification twice a year. Early in January, the next reclassification will take place. To balance their portfolio according to the category requirements, mutual fund managers must check the Amfi classification.
According to the latest reclassification of listed businesses in India, the continuing increase in equities in the first half of 2021 drove the threshold for largecap and midcap categories much higher.
