New Delhi: Asia’s oldest bourse BSE has said that transaction charges, varying from Rs 6 to Rs 30, will be levied on all orders routed through its mutual fund platform from Thursday. BSE runs the mutual fund trading platform—BSE Star MF. The platform provides a range of services for easy transactions and seamless order flow for Asset Management companies (AMCs).

“In order to cover the costs of operations, all participating Mutual Funds/ AMCs are hereby informed that with effect from 1 December 2016, transaction charges shall be levied on all orders being routed through the BSE Star MF platform,” BSE said in statement.
