We have more than 11,000 Mutual Fund Schemes that are currently available in the market (Equity & Debt Schemes as on Sep, 2016). Majority of us, do invest in multiple schemes in the name of Diversification.
If you are investing in Mutual Funds through any online distribution platforms, it can be a very easy task to get your Mutual fund transaction report (or) a capital gain statement.
What if you are investing in mutual funds directly through the websites of Mutual Fund house(s), especially in Direct Mutual Fund plans? What If you are in need of a Mutual fund consolidated account statement of all your old transactions as well?

So, how to get these useful statements online and for free? Who maintains the records of your MF transactions?
Who are Registrar & Transfer Agents?
You as a mutual fund investor, do a number of transactions, these can be buying, selling or switching mutual fund units. You may also request for a bank address change or an address change. Each such request is a transaction by itself. Mutual fund houses have to maintain records of all these transactions.
It can be a challenging task for a mutual fund house to perform these routine and non-core activities on a daily basis. Hence, most of the mutual fund houses outsource these activities to R&T Agents. An R&T agent assists all three stakeholders i.e., AMC, investor and intermediary (distributors). Below are the main R&T agents in India ;
