As of May 2022, about 17% of the assets of the mutual fund industry came from B30 locations. The majority of 83% of assets come from the T30 cities. Also, B30 locations tend towards equity assets and 75% of the assets from B30 locations are in equity schemes (as of May 2022). The figures are lower for T30 locations, where equity-oriented schemes accounted for about 44% of the overall assets.

But what is the significance of this city-level segregation of MF AUM by AMFI? It is because SEBI wants the mutual fund industry to work towards increasing the penetration of mutual funds across India and not just in the large cities. So the B30 Cities (cities beyond the top 30 cities) are put in a separate bucket and have their own B30 Commission Rules of Mutual Funds. In April 2018, to encourage large inflows from the B30 cities, the regulator had allowed an additional 0.30% (or 30 basis points) expense ratio incentive to commission-earning MF distributors. For SEBI Registered Investment Advisors (Fee-Only SEBI RIAs), who do not earn any commissions from AMC, there is no difference between investors from B30 and T30 in general.

So if you were looking for answers to What is B30 and T30 in mutual funds in India (2022), then now you know that the T30 refers to the top 30 locations (or cities) in India and B30 refers to the locations beyond the top 30 cities.
