    Pitfalls of having such a huge exposure to any single group. I wonder why the fund managers didn't sell the shares months ago.

    Its not exposure to equity that is the problem here, but to the debt itself in various debt schemes

    Regardless of how much equity AMC procures, no single equity scheme will have high exposure to a single stock. Even in Focused equity funds, the exposure is to 50 or so stocks. For other schemes, the exposure is spread out much more.

    AMC's also hold stock of the company as collateral for the debt, but since the stock has also taken a beating, they decided against selling it to recover the money.

    Maximum 30 stocks in focused funds, not 50.

    Yep, limit is 30 for Focused Funds in India.
