As inflow in equity mutual funds, including equity-linked savings scheme fell to a 25 month low to just 5,122 crore inflow February.

This is fourth straight monthly fall in the total equity inflow. Last time total inflow increased was in October 2018 when it touched 12,622 crore. Total equity inflow dipped over 16.8% in February as compared to previous month.
