India to introduce product labelling for Mutual Funds
India's capital market regulator SEBI will soon introduce product labelling for mutual funds.
This is to make the investors aware of any risks associated with it.
"Product labelling is an important investor education agenda for Sebi. The scheme profile will be given very shortly and finally it will be with colour codes," S V Muralidhar Rao, executive director of Sebi (Securities and Exchange Board of India) said today.
Rao said another important agenda on Sebi scheme of things was to spell out a long-term policy on mutual funds.
"Sebi will shortly bring out a long-term policy on mutual funds. That will be basically a taxation issue. The board of Sebi had approved idea of a long-term policy last year.
