  2. 2. 2 | P a g e Preface The MBA programme is well structured and integrated course of business studies. The main objective of practical training at MBA level is to develop skill in student by supplement to the theoretical study of business management in general. Industrial training helps to gain real life knowledge about the industrial environment and business practices. The MBA programme provides student with a fundamental knowledge of business and organizational functions and activities, as well as an exposure to strategic thinking of management. In every professional course, training is an important factor. In colleges we get the theoretical knowledge of various subjects but we are practically exposed of such subjects when we get the training in the organization. It is only the training through which I come to know that what an industry is and how it works. I can learn about various departmental operations being performed in the industry, which would, in return, help me in the future when I will enter the practical field. Training is an integral part of MBA and each and every student has to undergo the training of 45 days in a company and then prepare a project report on the same after the completion of training. During this whole training I got a lot of experience and came to know about the management practices in real that how it differs from those of theoretical knowledge and the practically in the real life. In today’s globalize world, where cutthroat competition is prevailing in the market, theoretical knowledge is not sufficient. Beside this one need to have practical knowledge, which would help an individual in his/her carrier activities and it is true that “Experience is best teacher”.

  6. 6. 6 | P a g e SECURITIES MARKET IN INDIA Capital market is the backbone of any country’s economy. It facilitates conversion of savings to investments. Capital market can be classified as primary and secondarymarket. The fresh issue of securities takes place in primary market and trading among investors takes place in secondary market. Primary market is also known as new issue market. Equity first enter capital market though investment in primary market. In India, common investors participating in the equity primary market is massive. The number of companies offering equity though primary markets increased continuously in the postindependence period till the year 1995. After 1995, there is a continuous slump experienced by the primary market offering equity. The main reason for slump is lack of investors’ confidence in the primary market. So it is important to understand the causes and measures of revival of investors’ confidence leading to capital mobilizing and investment in right avenues creating, economic growth in the country. Globally, there are increased evidences to suggest that investor confidence has assumed an important role in the economic development of a country. The economist (1998) indicated that a lot of issues need to address to make capital markets safer. Transparency, strengthening financial system and managing crises are the issues, which cannot be quickly fixed. But they add up to a stronger system. “The Securities market is the market for equity, debt and derivatives.” The securities market has essentially 3 categories that is the issuer of securities, the investors in the securities and intermediaries.

These intermediaries pack and unpack securities to help both the users and investors to achieve their respective goals. There are a large variety and number of intermediaries providing various services in the Indian Securities market. This process ofMobilizing of resources is carries out under the supervision and overview of regulators. The regulators develop fair market practices and regulate the conductof issuer’s securities and intermediaries. They are also in charge of protecting the interest of the investors. The regulator ensures a high service standard from the intermediaries and supply of equity securities and non manipulated demand for them in the market.

  47. 47. 47 | P a g e FINDINGS After getting in depth research study of Karvy, I came to know that Karvy is not much popular as other brands operating in Jaipur city. Bajaj Allianz, HDFC, ICICI are having much higher tapped market in respectto mutual funds. Karvy as an investment option in Mutual Fund does not possessmuch proficiency and potential customers in Jaipur city. Though the financial advisors advise their clients to go for Mutual Fund as a investment option. About 42% of advisors advise their clients to invest in Mutual Funds, followed by investing in Insurance sector. The advisors after having a deep thought says that it is the Returns that make them convince their clients to go for investment in mutual funds. 36% of advisors said that it is the Returns which make a person to invest in Mutual Fund. Followed by Risk which is quite lesser in other investment options. A huge lot of advisors showed a positive responsein dealing of for Mutual Fund. About 60% of them said that they are interested in dealing for Mutual Funds, because that results in higher brokerage. As far as Karvy is concerned about 91% of the advisors said that they are not aware of the services provided by Karvy, including Mutual Fund. When asked, 53% of advisors said that they are not interested to work with Karvy Securities, to the contrary with they don’thave any such expansion plans and they have little knowledge about Karvy. Jaipur city advisors don’thave an appropriate knowledge about Karvy as a Investment hub.
  48. 48. 48 | P a g e SWOT ANALYSIS OF KARVY Strengths: Employees are highly empowered. Strong Communication Network. Good co-operation between employees. Number 1 Registrar and Transfer agent in India. Number 1 dealer of InvestmentProducts in India. Weaknesses: High Employee Turnover. Opportunity: Growth rate of mutual fund industry is 40 to 50% during last year and it expected that this rate will be maintained in future also. Marketing at ruraland semi-urban areas. Threats: Increasing number of local players. Pastimage of Mutual Fund.
  49. 49. 49 | P a g e LIMITATIONS Due to limitation of time and cost constrains a sample sizeof only 50 respondents were chosen. Data Analysis and interpretation done may not be that strong due to small sample and ‘ConvenienceSampling Method’. The sample extent for research is only Jaipur City. Some of the respondents may be biased in giving responses. My inexperience in research area might have affected results. CONCLUSION Mutual Fund Advisors giveemphasis on mutual funds than other investment options. Mutual Funds have given a new direction to the flow of personalsaving and enable small and medium investors in remote ruraland semi urban areas to reap the benefits of the stock market investment. Indian Mutual Funds are thus playing a very important developmental role in allocation of scares resources in the emerging economy. Karvy is not able to providesufficient services to the investors due to unawareness among advisors regarding services. The awareness level of investor is low in advisors areinterested in dealing in mutual fund. Very less advisors know aboutservices provided by Karvy.
  50. 50. 50 | P a g e RECOMMENDATIONS There is high potential market for Mutual Fund Advisors in Jaipur city, but this market needs to be explored as investors arestill hesitated to invest their money in Mutual Funds. In Jaipur investors haveinadequate knowledgeabout Mutual Funds, So proper Marketing of various schemes is required, company should arranges moreand more seminars on Mutual Funds. Awareness of MF services provided by Karvy is also very low so company needs proper marketing of their all services by advertising, distribution of pamphlet, arranging seminars etc. Most of advisors arenot interested in dealing of Mutual Funds becausethey don’t want to expand their services due to lack of time, so company should provide them knowledgeabout single window services by which investor can get all financial services fromone place. Company should also provideknowledgeabout the growth rate and the expected growth rate of Mutual Fund industry in India. Most of people awareof life insurance, NSCand PPF for tax saving so, company should market various tax saving schemes of Mutual Funds and their benefits. The interface among the investors and the Mutual Fund Companies is the agents, so the agents should haveproper knowledge aboutMutual Funds as well as market so that they can help investors in their investment decisions. The quality of agents performanceand investors truston them can be improved only if they are permanent in nature.
