What is Transmission?
Transmission is the process to transfer mutual fund units in case of the demise of the unit holder.

The transfer of units can be done to the claimant who can be the second holder or the nominee registered in the folio or the legal heir.
How is transmission of units done?
If the first holder of the mutual fund units passes away, the units are transmitted to the second holder. In case there is only one holder, the units are transmitted to the registered nominee or to the legal heir in case no nominee is registered in the folio.
A request letter along with the supporting mandatory document is required to be submitted by the claimant to the CAMS/Mutual Fund, informing about the demise of the unit holder and to process the transfer of units.
How long does it take to complete transmission?
The process can take up to 7 business days after submission of the complete set of required documents.
