Franklin Templeton Mutual Fund has started the e-voting process for liquidation of its six debt schemes. This is to seek unitholder consent and decide between two proposed courses of action by a simple majority of votes cast, for each scheme. Unitholders have to first confirm their intent to participate in the e-voting process here.  The e-voting will remain open from 9:00 AM on 9 June to 6:00 PM on 11 June, and also during the time of VC unitholders meeting – 9:00 AM to 10:30 AM on 12 June. 

At the time of voting, unitholders will have the option to choose between the trustee (Franklin Templeton Trustee Services Private Limited) or Deloitte. Please note that unitholders should cast their vote separately for each scheme in which they hold units. Also, if unitholders abstain from voting or do not choose from one of two options, it may delay the liquidation process entirely. So if you are a unitholder in one or more of the six schemes, please visit this link, review the materials carefully and register to cast your vote on the above dates.

Thinking too much leads to paralysis by analysis. It’s important to think things through, but many use thinking as a means of avoiding action.
