He urged the audience to invest wisely and actively pursue their financial knowledge.

The seminar began with an introduction, followed by two technical sessions led by distinguished guests. Mr. Shri Pranjal Jayaswal, General Manager at SEBI, conducted the first session. Mr. Jayaswal gave a thorough overview of SEBI’s regulatory structure and its initiatives to safeguard investors and guarantee fair market practices.

Vice President of NSE, Mr. Joginder Singh, led the second technical session. Mr. Singh dug into the complexities of capital market investing and offered insightful information on market dynamics, investment tactics, and risk management. The engaged crowd greatly enjoyed his presentation.

The session included an interesting quiz that assessed the attendees’ understanding of financial markets and investing fundamentals. It offered the guests an enjoyable and instructive approach to evaluating their financial literacy.

Following the technical presentations, there was a lively interactive Q&A session where students and faculty could ask questions and get answers from the experts.
