To mark the significance of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav, NSDL has launched a new initiative towards investor awareness ‘Market Ka Eklavya – Express’ across 75 cities, especially aimed at the college students who would very soon be entering the phase where they would start earning and look for avenues of investment.  Earlier this month, Market ka Eklavya (5-hour programme) was launched by the Finance minister Nirmala Sitharaman at the silver jubilee event of NSDL.  

On the launch of the initiative NSDL MD and CEO Padmaja Chunduru said, “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav is a special initiative launched by our Prime Minister to celebrate and commemorate 75 years of India’s Independence. Our programme has been particularly aimed at creating awareness about the financial markets among the young minds who will be the future of our country. Our digital education initiative focuses on building a path towards financial freedom for our youth, symbolising the spirit of Atmanirbhar Bharat.”

The programme will be conducted for one hour and mainly educate the students on demystifying the jargons, 3I’s – types of income; inflation and its impact, types of investment; 3S – start early- power of compounding, spread wide, stay long etc.
