Debt funds that specialise in investing in fixed-income securities saw an outflow of 65k crore rupees in September as a result of rising interest rates and corporate redemptions to pay advance tax.
Data from the Amfi showed that there had been net inflows of ₹49k crores in August and roughly ₹5k crores in July prior to this.
Prior to that, due to excessive inflation and an increasing rate cycle, investors withdrew more than ₹70,000 crore from debt mutual funds in April and June.
Investors are likely moving away from debt markets in favour of equity markets due to the environment of rising interest rates that have been in place since May 2022.
