TABLE-Returns for Indian equity funds surge in September

MUMBAI, Oct 4 (Reuters) - Mutual funds in India posted their best gains in eight months in September after a slew of government fiscal and economic reforms sparked a powerful stock market rally, according to data from fund tracker Lipper, a Thomson Reuters company.

Diversified equity funds gained 8.5 percent in September. By sectors, funds focused on banks and financial institutions were the best performers with a 15.8 percent gain, while funds focused on global gold and precious companies rose 8.1 percent.

By contrast, funds that invest in bonds or commodities posted comparatively smaller gains of around 1-2 percent.
