The move to shift to a web-based mechanism would help to centralise transactions in mutual funds as well as streamline operational activities.

“NEAT MFSS (mutual fund service system) shall be discontinued with effect from December 30, 2016 (end of business hours),” NSE said in a recent circular.

“Only web-based MFSS platform shall be available for transactions in MFSS segment with effect from January 2, 2017,” it added. Accordingly, NSE has asked its members who do not have access to the MFSS web-based platform to apply for the same.

“Members are requested to kindly take note of the above and expeditiously move their operations from NEAT MFSS to Web Based MFSS latest by December 30, 2016,” the stock exchange said.
