In case of Mutual Fund NAVs (Net Asset Value) should be used. There are 2 types of Mutual Fund ,one is Open funded (In this type of MF, investor can sell his Investment anytime through stock exchanges) and second one is close ended (In this type of MF, the co. which issued the MF plan give you a specific time at which you can sell your mutual fund to them).
You can find NAV of Openended MF on moneycontrol.com
in case of Close ended, go to the site of the co. which issued the Mutual Fund Plan, on their site you can get NAVs of each day.
Accordingly you are intelligent enough to apply AS 13.

For the purpose of valuation we need to understand one thing that what is long term investments and what is short term investment.
Although it seems that you know the meaning, hence on this presumption I would like to say that, If after reinvestment also you are expecting to hold your investments for period more than 12 months then in my opinion you can account the same on the principle of long term investments. Irrespective of the fact that you have invested it now. Because for holdings of a shorter term, since you will be liquidating it immediately or more sooner its better to account for the loss and similarly incase of long term need not give effect for changes unless they're certain and constant.
Hope I have answered, but feel free to contact for any queries in this regards.
