Introduction of LTCG, DDT didn’t decrease mutual fund inflow: AMFI

Kolkata, Feb 13 - The mutual funds industry does not see any reduction in the inflows of funds after the proposal of long term capital gains tax (LTCG) and dividend distribution tax (DDT), an official said here on February 13.

The industry also expects there would be no level playing field between mutual funds and unit linked insurance plan (ULIP) after the introduction of LTCG and DDT, Association of Mutual Funds of India (AMFI) Chief Executive N. S. Venkatesh said.

"At this particular point of time, we do not see any reduction in inflows in mutual fund industry. We believe it would have been better if long term capital gains tax was not there. However, it has not affected the flows at all," Venkatesh added.

He added that all financial products should have the same tax treatment and that the mutual fund industry was trying to keep everything (mutual funds, ULIPs) on the level playing field.

Venkatesh also said that SIP inflow would continue to flow even after the proposal of the LTCG.

In his budget announcements, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley proposed tax on long-term capital gains exceeding Rs one lakh at a rate of 10% without allowing the benefit of indexation. All gains up to January 31, 2018 would be grandfathered.

He also proposed to introduce a tax on distributed income on equity oriented mutual funds at a rate of 10%. In a representation to the government, the industry urged the centre to reconsider the long-term capital gains tax and dividend distribution tax.

"There is no level playing field between ULIP and mutual funds after the introduction of the two taxes," he said.

According to him, the mutual funds industry's assets under management are at Rs 22.48 lakh crore and the same is expected to be Rs 50 lakh crore in the next four years.
