The drop is attributed to fund houses accepting forms for physical transactions.

The transactions processed on BSE StAR MF, the online platform for Mutual Funds distributor, was down 11 per cent in June at ₹22,667 crore against ₹25,540 crore logged in May as mutual funds started accepting forms for physical transactions besides opening their offices with state governments unlocking economic activities after the Covid lockdown.
