Please note that the Net Assets Value(NAV) and date, mentioned above, are the last recorded NAV as available with RR for the date mentioned and this may not be applicable to the order that you are going to place. The NAV applicable to your order would depend on the type of the fund and the time you enter the order. For e.g. If you have placed a purchase/Switch/Redemption orders on a business day before 14:00 hrs(cutoff time) in a Non-liquid fund on RR then the order will be processed at the NAV as at the close of the business day. For orders placed on that business day after 12:30 hrs or if placed on a Non-Business day, the NAV of the next business day will normally be applicable.
As per SEBI guidelines the cutoff time for accepting orders in Non-liquid funds is 15:00 hrs and in Liquid funds it is 13:30 hrs. However taking into account internal transaction processing time, RR has kept the internal cutoff time, for accepting all orders in Non-liquid funds as 14:00 hrs and Purchase in Liquid funds( to get historic Net Asset Value "NAV") as 12:30 hrs. All orders placed within the RR Finance cut-off time will get the applicable NAV. Any orders placed post the RR Finance cut-off time but before the SEBI mandated cut-off time, shall be processed on best efforts basis for the applicable NAV.

I/We acknowledge that the units of the scheme shall be allotted, redeemed or switched, as the case may be, by the respective mutual funds / AMCs at the applicable Net Asset Value (“NAV”) of the concerned mutual fund scheme as specified by RR and consistent with the terms of the Scheme. However, RR shall not be liable for any loss that may arise to me/us as a result of incorrect NAV applied on units allotted to me/us by the mutual fund.
I/We acknowledge that any transactions done on a holiday would be processed on the next business day and the NAV would be applicable as per the respective scheme related documents.
I/We acknowledge that transactions once placed cannot be cancelled.
I/we acknowledge that any application for redemption, purchase or exchange or any other instruction must be correct, complete, clear and unambiguous in all respects and should conform to the prescribed procedure/documentation and regulatory requirements, failing which, RR /AMC reserve the right to reject the same and in such a case RR/AMC/Trustee shall not be responsible for any consequence arising therefrom.
