Inflows into Indian stock funds halted a four-month rising streak even as the $2 trillion equity market logged its best September in six years after the government’s surprise $20 billion break to companies. Stock plans received ₹6,610 crore ($931 million) last month, according to the Association of Mutual Funds in India. That’s 28% less than what the funds got in August.
