A measure of active return and excess return over a risk-free rate is also made in this study. Fama performance measure is used in detail to evaluate the skill of fund managers. This study covers the period from February 2013 to December 2021 (107 months). The study revealed that most of the funds failed to outperform the benchmark during the period.
