  1. SEBI has come up with a new classification scheme for mutual funds. I learnt that they do not have a category for short term gilt funds. So, all gilt funds are now going to contain a mix of maturities. I got a notice from my MF that my short term gilt fund is changing into a composite gilt fund. What this means is that a) my portfolio's interest rate duration risk is changing due to the regulator's actions, b) I have no option to actually change back my risk profile to what I want it to be as there is no option to choose a short term gilt fund anymore and c) even if I were to switch back to an appropriate mix I would incur short term gains tax.

    All due to a retarded classification scheme which does not allow for a short term gilt fund, a basic option upon which everything is built on. Short term gilts are the basic risk-free rate.

    What is even more off is that a) the MF industry (Fund houses and the distributor guilds) seems fine with it or has been unable to convince SEBI otherwise on such a simple, basic issue. b) the media hasn't written about this. What the hell is the matter with SEBI and the media and the industry? I don't get it!!
