AMFI stock categorization is mainly referred to by active equity mutual fund managers. As the stocks move up from lower categorization to higher (say small-cap to mid-cap and midcap to large-cap), it increases their visibility. Fund managers typically further analyze such stocks and add them as per their rationale while complying with the scheme mandate.
“The change in categorization doesn’t necessarily lead to incremental inflow or outflow. The active mutual fund managers keep an eye on the list while taking fresh/modifying positions in stocks in different categories of schemes,” said Abhilash Pagaria of Nuvama.

Among those stocks that may get downgraded to smallcap from midcap are
