How the repayment of Rs 9,122 cr from the Franklin mutual fund will be distributed among the investors in the closed plan



NEW DELHI: Good news for some of the investors in the six programs closed by Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund in April 2020. The fund company will disburse cash held in five of the six programs to investors in accordance with the Supreme Court verdict on the matter.

Investors in the Franklin India Low Duration Fund will recover around 63% of the value of their investment, while investors in the Franklin India Ultra Short Bond Fund will recover almost 50% when the Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund begins distributing cash next week.

But investors in the Franklin India short-term plan can expect just under 9%, while investors in any of the six closed programs will get nothing in the first tranche. The Franklin India Income Opportunities Fund does not yet have positive liquidity, although its borrowing levels have fallen to 5%.
