Inflows into funds that invest in Mumbai-listed shares totaled about $638 million in the five days to July 14, while those buying Chinese equities received $223 million.


The benchmark Sensex rose to a record high on Monday, extending its gains from late March to 16% in both rupee and dollar terms.
