According to SEBI data, the total value of P-note investments in Indian markets equity, debt, and derivatives stood at Rs 78,110 crore till March-end. At the end of February, the same was at Rs 73,428 crore.  Vinod Nair, the head of research at Geojit Financial Services, said, “The increase in P-notes investment is in line with the higher net inflows of FPIs in the cash segment, which increased from Rs 13,500 crore in February to Rs 32,000 crore in March.” Of the total P-note investments made till March-end, Rs 56,288 crore was in equities, Rs 20,999 crore in debt and Rs 119 crore in derivatives markets.
