The Financial Stability and Development Council (FSDC), a Standing Committee headed by Hon’ble Union Finance Minister has inter alia recognized the importance of financial education and investor awareness and has adopted a policy document “National Strategy for Financial Education”.
In this background and keeping in mind its mandate for creating awareness among investors, NSDL under guidance of Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), national regulator of securities market, has started a pan India Financial Literacy and Investor Awareness Program for different segments of the society. It is felt that though a number of citizens are academically literate, there is need for making them financially literate and aware for equipping them to take their financial decisions in an informed manner and to do financial planning in a more structured manner so that not only their present is good but also their future is secured. It is our belief that an educated and informed investor is a protected investor.
During our presentations we would cover all these topics which has been described in above para. SEBI would also educate investor by way of some basic information on importance of timely savings and investments, different avenues of investments, recognized financial products, financial planning including retirement planning, dos and don’ts while investing, awareness against illegal and unregistered money mobilization schemes etc. is imparted to participants in a structured manner. National Stock Exchange of India Ltd (NSE) will also participate in the seminar to educate the investors.
