What is NAV in Mutual Funds? - MyDhanush Blogs by Ashika

NAV, or Net Asset Value, indicates a mutual fund scheme’s performance through its NAV per unit, calculated by dividing the market value of securities by the total units. For instance, with a scheme having a market value of Rs 200 lakh and 10 lakh units of Rs 10 each, the NAV per unit is Rs 20 (Rs 200 lakh divided by 10 lakh).

Since the market value fluctuates daily, a scheme’s NAV also varies accordingly. Mutual fund NAVs are disclosed at the end of each trading day, aligning with SEBI Mutual Fund Regulations. Units, except in Liquid & Overnight funds, are allotted at the prospective NAV based on the closing market value.

Even if a mutual fund accepts applications post-cut-off time, the investor receives the NAV of the next business day. Cut-off time rules apply to redemptions as well.
