According to N. S. Venkatesh, Chief Executive, AMFI: “SIP AUMs as also Retail Equity folios, are at an all-time high at Rs 4.21 lakh crore and 8.07 crore respectively, reflective of continued disciplined approach adopted by the retail Mutual Fund investors.”

“This has aided in overall Net AAUMs rising 14.17 per cent to all time high at Rs 32.29 lakh crore.”

“However, the monthly SIP Contribution for February 2021 has come down by Rs 495 crore owing to weekend dawning on end of February and the shortfall would get accumulated and reflected in March 2021 monthly data.”
