Advertising rules to be made principle based. Also, the definition of advertisement for mutual funds is broadened to include all forms of communication that may influence investor’s decision.

SEBI is considering relaxing some of the advertisement rules,” a sales head of a top AMC had opined a few weeks back.

Minimum PMS investment raised to Rs. 25 lakh from Rs. 5 lakh
