Why do I have to update a nomination for my mutual fund holdings? How do I do this?
As per SEBI regulations, is mandatory for investors to complete the nomination requirements for their demat and non-demat (physical) mutual fund holdings by 31st March 2023. If you fail to do so, the account will be frozen and you will not be able to trade/transact.
The regulation requires you to either add a nominee or opt-out of a nomination (if you do not wish to add one) by 31st March 2023.
- Mutual funds held in your demat account: The nominee registered with your demat account will be applicable for such holdings. Learn how to add a nominee to your demat account.
- Mutual funds held physically (non-demat): Can be update through KFIN or CAMS.
