Many online portals and mutual fund accounts have a different cut-off time which is generally 2 PM for their investors. This is to help them process applications at the back end, and then route it to the fund house.
It's good to know cut-off timings, but there is no need to think too much about deadlines. It may matter if the investment or redemption amount is high otherwise, a day here or there won't make much difference in the long run.
