Why was the mutual fund order rejected even after completing the payment?
Mutual fund orders can be rejected even after completing the payments by the RTA or by BSE StAR MF for the following reasons:
Cumulative PAN Level Amount Crossing EB Eligible Limit.
The schemes in which Zerodha SIP or lumpsum investments have been suspended are as follows:
Scheme Name Circular Investment Limit SBI Small Cap Fund BSE Notice No - 20210205-13 ₹25,000/- per month Mirae Asset Emerging Bluechip Fund BSE Notice No - 20201106-5 ₹2,500/- per month
This occurs because AMCs may suspend lumpsum investments due to valuation and size constraints.
To invest in such schemes, use AMC SIP. See What is the AMC SIP option on Coin web? Features such as instant pause and resume, instant modification, and step-up SIPs are disabled for AMC SIPs.
Aadhaar-EKYC Investment Amount Exceeds Rs. 50K EKYC client. If the KYC flag as per the CVL KRA website (
) is marked as E-KYC, the maximum investment allowed is ₹50,000 per AMC. See
Why did my mutual fund order on Coin exceeding Rs 50000 get rejected?
USA and CANADA Investors are not allowed to Invest.
NRO clients from Canada and the USA cannot invest in a few mutual fund schemes. Additionally, if the KYC address mentioned on the KRA in Zerodha's records is in the USA or Canada, the orders can be rejected.
When an account is opened with Zerodha, a Third Party Verification (TPV) is carried out for the bank accounts. Similarly, when an account is enabled on BSE STaR MF, the exchange does a TPV of the bank account and marks the bank account valid or invalid.
If a fund transfer is made using a bank account that is marked invalid, the purchase order gets rejected from the exchange with the rejection reason as TPV Invalid. To learn more, see Why is the mutual fund order rejected with the error TPV Invalid?
