Srinagar, Sep 30: In a collaborative effort, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and the National Stock Exchange (NSE) joined forces with the National Institute of Technology Srinagar to host a seminar on financial literacy on Saturday. The event unfolded as a dynamic initiative aimed at cultivating financial education and elevating awareness about capital markets among the students and faculty of NIT Srinagar.
The inaugural address set the stage with a warm welcome speech by Prof. Adnan Qayoum, the Head of the Department of Humanities, Social Sciences, and Management (HSS&M) at NIT Srinagar. Prof. Qayoum expressed heartfelt gratitude to the distinguished guests and participants, underlining the paramount importance of financial literacy in navigating today's ever-evolving economic landscape.
A pivotal moment of the seminar was the presence of the Chief Guest, Shri SVMD Rao, Executive Director of SEBI. Rao imparted invaluable insights into the significance of financial literacy and delineated SEBI's pivotal role in regulating India's securities and exchange markets. He passionately encouraged the audience, comprised of budding scholars and faculty, to actively engage with financial education and become astute investors.
The seminar seamlessly transitioned into two technically enriched sessions led by distinguished guest speakers. The first session was gracefully orchestrated by Shri Pranjal Jayaswal, General Manager at SEBI. With erudition and finesse, Jayaswal provided a holistic overview of SEBI's regulatory framework, elucidating its unyielding commitment to safeguarding investors and ensuring the integrity of market practices.
The second technical session, a masterclass in investment, was skillfully conducted by Joginder Singh, Vice President of NSE. With consummate expertise, Singh navigated through the intricacies of capital market investments, illuminating the audience with profound insights into market dynamics, investment strategies, and prudent risk management. His session was met with resounding acclaim from the engaged and enthusiastic audience.
Adding an interactive twist, a spirited quiz challenged participants' knowledge of financial markets and investment principles. This segment not only tested but also enhanced the participants' financial literacy in a fun and engaging manner.
The seminar further fostered a dynamic exchange of ideas during the lively Q&A session that followed the technical presentations. Students and faculty seized the opportunity to seek guidance and clarification from the expert speakers, enriching their understanding of the financial world.
