business strategy. We feel that an informed investor is better poised to
derive maximum benefit from the investment options available in the Indian
financial market. We will continue to ramp up our scale and pace of these
Investor Education Programs each year and hope to help more investor create
wealth by taking better investment decisions ", said Mr Vikrant Gugnani,

Haryana and Uttar Pradesh in the first phase followed by South, West and East
regions in a phased manner. The programs would be organized with the help of
partners in various across State Capitals, Metros, Tier-1, Tier 2 and Tier 3
cities across the country with a special focus on Eastern States.

"Our focus would be on Tier-2, Tier 3 cities where we feel
investors have not been able to participate in the entire exercise of wealth
creation because of lack of information or inadequate hand-holding preventing
them from taking the first step. For the existing investors, we would provide
them with adequate information on the advantages and dangers of internet
trading so that they can be careful while trading on the net. Over the next
few months we

propose to educate over 1.5 lakh such investors and are
hopeful a large part of these investors would take an informed view while
making investments ", said Mr Gugnani.

The company has formulated detailed modules and literature
that will help equip the investors with latest information on investment
options, evaluation tools, internet trading with special emphasis on the
advantages and disadvantages of the new internet and mobile technology
platforms that offer unique investment opportunities.
