New Delhi: Former Finance Minister P Chidambaram on Monday, April 27 lauded the RBI’s prompt action in announcing a Rs 50,000 crore special liquidity facility for mutual funds.

The Reserve Bank of India on Monday announced a Rs 50,000 crore special liquidity facility for mutual funds, days after Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund decided to close six debt schemes.

“I welcome the RBI’s announcement of a Rs 50,000 crore special liquidity facility for Mutual Funds. I am glad that RBI has taken note of the concerns expressed two days ago and requesting prompt action,” the Congress leader said on Twitter.

Chidambaram had on Saturday expressed “grave concern” for investors over Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund’s decision to wind up six debt schemes and urged the government to act promptly to resolve the issue.

Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund voluntarily decided to wind up its six debt schemes citing redemption pressure and lack of liquidity in bond markets due to the coronavirus pandemic.
