In connection with this, certain UTI Mutual Fund schemes received an aggregate amount of Rs 20.50 crore from Altico Capital and such schemes accounted for their respective portion of such amount, it added.

UTI Credit Risk Fund had an exposure of about Rs 200 crore in debt security of Altico Capital. UTI MF's sponsors are State Bank of India, Punjab National Bank, Bank of Baroda and Life Insurance Corporation of India.

Last month, UTI MF filed draft papers with markets regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India to float an initial public offering and according to investment bankers, the issue size is expected to be around Rs 3,000 crore.
