Feeling cheated by UTI MF

The type of funds you are buying and the time of purchase would determine the NAV you would get

I have ordered to buy UTI Equity Fund (Direct Plan- Dividend Reinvest Scheme) for ₹2,000 on Saturday night (12.12.2015) through the net. The price of each unit at that point of time was ₹78.8205. The purchase must have been completed during or before 12 PM on Monday (14.12.2015). But when I finally got the units I have been charged a price of ₹79.1642. This is Monday night's price (14.12.2015). I feel cheated by UTI Mutual fund. Whom should I complain?

There is no need to complain as the fund house has not cheated you. It has just followed the legal procedure.

The official cut-off time is 3 pm for equity funds. If you are purchasing before 3 pm, the NAV of the same day would be applicable. For applications received after 3 pm, the NAV of the next business day would apply. This explains why you got Monday's NAV.
