FINDINGS
AND
CONCLUSIONS





Findings and conclusions:




* The NFO is found to be a complex activity calling for creating an
organization polling the knowledge and expertise of people in
different areas.
* The NFO process is simple and well structured as long as it is to
investor to investor, but thereafter the process is lengthy time
consuming and found to be overlapping at some stages.
* The SEBI regulations governing NFO are comprehensive and
protect investor's interest at each level.
* Different funds have been designing different forms of applications
for NFO.
* An analysis of sample of applications revealed the following
O Majority applicants prefer to hold the units individually.
O Majority of the applicants are in service.
O NRI s share is about 4% of the total.
O More than 2/3
rd
of the applicants are HUF s.

O The most common investment amount is 5000-25000.

SUGGESTIONS
AND
RECOMMENDAIONS






Suggestions and recommendations:



* Different funds have been using different forms of applications. A
standardized form of application maybe designed by the competent
authority and should be made mandatory for all funds to use the
standard application form.
* The NFO process is very complex and there is a need to simplify the
process by eliminating certain unnecessary steps in the process ie
instead of carrying out audit for three times and appropriate internal
check system maybe devised to keep the errors within the tolerance
limits.
* The NRI subscribers to the fund maybe encouraged to make the
payments from NRO, NRE and FCNR accounts.
* The application from institutional investors and foreign institutional
investors are to be encouraged through a package of incentives.
* The participation of senior citizens in the NFO s may be encouraged
as they are likely to hold more surpluses compared to others.
* The holding of units in joint names shall be encouraged.
* There is a need to investigate the reasons for HUF s occupying more
than 2/3
rd
share in the non-individual applications as its not a body
corporate.
* A savings from all channels of India / World are to be tapped by the
NFO rather than one or two states applying for a loin share of the
option.
