Dear management aspirants
Jaipuria Institute of Management Studies conducted a workshop titled Sanchayan- Investor Education Program for working professionals on January 19, 2012 for its PGDM students.
The workshop was conducted by Mr. Avik Kedia & Ms. Chidambara, Directors of Sanchayan- a registered non-profit charity organization, recognized by SEBI and bestowed with the award of being Indias Youngest Charity Organization. Sanchayan Society is Indias 1st NGO dedicated to financial inclusion and literacy for the Youth and Adults. It has tie-ups with BSE, NSE, NSDL, PFRDA etc. The organization aims at providing medical insurance, life insurance, opening bank accounts, Pan Cards & Pension Cards for rural and urban poor without any Identity proof. Apart from this they provide consultancy services to individuals and companies to make smart investment decisions.
It is very disheartening to see that out of a population of 120 crore people in India only 4 crore people invest in the share market. The Securities and Exchange Board of Indias endeavour is to encourage more and more people to invest in the stock market as it will gradually result in the growth of our economy.
The motive of the workshop was to create the urge in the students to start investing and saving for future at an early age so that they can have the desired standard of living and retire gracefully.
They also gave many investment related tips to the audience for making smart investment which will positively give them returns.
