Mutual Fund Scheme Name Changes

Each mutual fund house used to come up with new fund offerings which usually imitate the investment strategy of their successful schemes. This trend has created a lot of lookalike schemes from the same fund house. Some schemes used have adjectives in their name which are used to lure in the investors. SEBI in its October 2017 circular released guidelines on Categorisation and Rationalisation of mutual fund schemes. According to this many fund houses are forced to merge their similar looking schemes. The names of certain schemes are changed to remove the adjectives.

The following is the list of the schemes for which names are changed so far due to the merger of schemes and otherwise. (updated as on 20-04-2018)
