In February, mutual funds added shares of Indigo, PayTM, and a few more

Due to consistent monthly inflows, mutual funds have purchased stocks, notwithstanding the fluctuations in February.

The Adani Group crisis, which affected market mood and led to a sell-off, caused the Sensex to decline 1% in February. Nonetheless, with a total infusion of Rs. 15,686 cr in February, mutual fund inflows into equity-oriented funds reached a nine-month high.

Fund companies invested in large-cap stocks, including GAIL, Indigo, Tata Motors, and Dabur India. As per ICICI Direct Research, they simultaneously sold Adani equities comprising Adani Ports and SEZ, Adani Enterprises, Adani Total Gas, and Ambuja Cements.
