New ideas and innovations have always been the hallmark of progress made by
mankind. At every stage of development, there have been two core factors that drive
man to ideas and innovation. These are increasing returns and reducing risk, in all
facets of life. The financial markets are no different. The endeavor has always been to
maximize returns and minimize risk. A lot of innovation goes into developing
financial products centered on these two factors. It has spawned a whole new area
called financial engineering.
Derivatives are among the forefront of the innovations in the financial markets and
aim to increase returns and reduce risk. They provide an outlet for investors to protect
themselves from the vagaries of the financial markets. These instruments have been
very popular with investors all over the world.
The good news is that E-MARKETING is inexpensive, fast, and easy to carry out and
it can be more effective than any other marketing channel available today if you‟re
smart. Being smart is to be strategic. Online trading is now become very popular due
to this e marketing only.

INTRODUCTION OF STOCK MARKET
Indian Stock Markets are one of the oldest in Asia. Its history dates back to nearly 200
years ago. The earliest records of security dealings in India are meager and obscure.
The East India Company was the dominant institution in those days and business in its
loan securities used to be transacted towards the close of the eighteenth century.
By 1830's business on corporate stocks and shares in Bank and Cotton presses took
place in Bombay. Though the trading list was broader in 1839, there were only half a
dozen brokers recognized by banks and merchants during 1840 and 1850.
The 1850's witnessed a rapid development of commercial enterprise and brokerage
business attracted many men into the field and by 1860 the number of brokers
increased into 60.
In 1860- 61 the American Civil War broke out and cotton supply from United States
of Europe was stopped; thus, the 'Share Mania' in India begun. The number of brokers
increased to about 200 to 250. However, at the end of the American Civil War, in
1865, a disastrous slump began (for example, Bank of Bombay Share which had
touched Rs 2850 could only be sold at Rs. 87).
In 1887, they formally established in Bombay, the "Native Share and Stock Brokers'
Association" (which is alternatively known as "The Stock Exchange"). In 1895, the
Stock Exchange acquired a premise in the same street and it was inaugurated in 1899.
Thus, the Stock Exchange at Bombay was consolidated.
Thus in the same way, gradually with the passage of time number of exchanges were
increased and at currently it reached to the figure of 24 stock exchange
For a new investor, the stock market can feel a lot like legalized gambling. "Ladies
and gentlemen, place your bets! Randomly choose a stock based on gut instinct and
water cooler chatter! If the price of your stock goes up -- and who knows why? -- you
win! If it drops, you lose!" Isn't that why so many people got rich during the dot-com
boom -- and why so many people lost their shirts (not to mention their retirement
savings) in the recent recession?

INDIAN FINANCIAL SYSTEM
IMPORTANCE OF STOCK MARKET:
Function and purpose
Stock market is an important part of the economy of a country. The stock market
plays a play a pivotal role in the growth of the industry and commerce of the country
that eventually affects the economy of the country to a great extent. That is reason that
the government, industry and even the central banks of the country keep a close watch
on the happenings of the stock market. The stock market is important from both the
industry‟s point of view as well as the investor‟s point of view.
Whenever a company wants to raise funds for further expansion or settling up a new
business venture, they have to either take a loan from a financial organization or they
have to issue shares through the stock market. In fact the stock market is the primary
source for any company to raise funds for business expansions. If a company wants to
raise some capital for the business it can issue shares of the company that is basically
part ownership of the company. To issue shares for the investors to invest in the
stocks a company needs to get listed to a stocks exchange and through the primary
market of the stock exchange they can issue the shares and get the funds for business
requirements. There are certain rules and regulations for getting listed at a stock
exchange and they need to fulfill some criteria to issue stocks and go public.
The stock market is primarily the place where these companies get listed to issue the
shares and raise the fund. In case of an already listed public company, they issue more
shares to the market for collecting more funds for business expansion. For the
companies which are going public for the first time, they need to start with the Initial
Public Offering or the IPO. In both the cases these companies have to go through the
This is the primary function of the stock exchange and thus they play the most
important role of supporting the growth of the industry and commerce in the country.
That is the reason that a rising stock market is the sign of a developing industrial
sector and a growing economy of the country.
Of course this is just the primary function of the stock market and just an half of the
role that the stock market plays. The secondary function of the stock market is that the
market plays the role of a common platform for the buyers and sellers of these stocks
that are listed at the stock market. It is the secondary market of the stock exchange
where retail investors and institutional investors buy and sell the stocks. In fact it is
these stock market traders who raise the fund for the businesses by investing in the
For investing in the stocks or to trade in the stock the investors have to go through the
brokers of the stock market. Brokers actually execute the buy and sell orders of the
investors and settle the deals to keep the stock trading alive. The brokers basically act
as a middle man between the buyers and sellers. Once the buyer places a buy order in
the stock market the brokers finds a seller of the stock and thus the deal is closed. All
these take place at the stock market and it is the demand and supply of the stock of a
company that determines the price of the stock of that particular company.
So the stock market is not only providing the much required funds for boosting the
business, but also providing a common place for stock trading. It is the stock market
that makes the stocks a liquid asset unlike the real estate investment. It is the stock
market that makes it possible to sell the stocks at any point of time and get back the
investment along with the profit. This makes the stocks much more liquid in nature
and thereby attracting investors to invest in the stock market.

Overview of Demat Account :
Demat account allows you to buy, sell and transact shares without the endless
paperwork and delays. It is also safe, secure and convenient.
In India, a demat account, the abbreviation for dematerialized account, is a type of
banking account which dematerializes paper-based physical stock shares. The
dematerialized account is used to avoid holding physical shares: the shares are bought
and sold through a stock broker.
This account is popular in India. The Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI)
mandates a demat account for share trading above 500 shares. As of April 2006, it
became mandatory that any person holding a demat account should possess a
Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the deadline for submission of PAN details
to the depository lapsed on January 2007.
IS DEMAT A/C IS MUST?
Now a day, practically all trades have to be settled in dematerialized form. Although
the market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), has allowed
trades of up to 500 shares to be settled in physical form, nobody wants physical shares
any more. So a demat account is a must for trading and investing.
WHY TO CHOOSE DEMAT?
The demat account reduces brokerage charges, makes pledging/hypothecation of
shares easier, enables quick ownership of securities on settlement resulting in
increased liquidity, avoids confusion in the ownership title of securities, and provides
easy receipt of public issue allotments.
It also helps you avoid bad deliveries caused by signature mismatch, postal delays and
loss of certificates in transit. Further, it eliminates risks associated with forgery,
counterfeiting and loss due to fire, theft or mutilation. Demat account holders can also
avoid stamp duty (as against 0.5 per cent payable on physical shares), avoid filling up
of transfer deeds, and obtain quick receipt of such benefits as stock splits and bonuses.
WHAT IS DEMATERIALIZATION?
Dematerialization is the process by which physical certificates of an investor are
converted to an equivalent number of securities in electronic form and credited
into the investor‟s account with his/her DP.
WHY DEMAT A/C IS LIKE BANK A/C?
Just as you have to open an a/c with a bank if you want to save your money, make
cheque payments etc, you need to open a demat a/c if you want to buy or sell stocks.
So it just like a bank a/c where actual money replaced by shares.
Example : let‟s say your portfolio has 100 of SATYAM, 200 of IBM and 120 of TCS
shares. All these will show in you‟re a/c. so you don‟t have to possess any physical
certificate that you own these shares. They all are held electronically in you‟re a/c.

GENERATION OF LEADS FOR SHAREKHAN:
Since I was new in the field so I had to start from scratch and generate new leads to
sustain in the market.
Personal refrences and cold calling is one of the trusted ways of getting to the
customers without meeting them. Although in cold calling the rate of conversion
remained very less, for cold calling the quality and accent remains a very important
criterion. This activity gives me mixed result. I often got success and generated many
leads through it but it also landed me in awkward position where the customer is not
ready to hear. Corporate calls always remained more difficult to crack with respect to
The corporate were the most difficult and most temping to get the business from. It
took me one one day to crack Hi-tech Gears. At SHAREKHAN LTD. after getting the
product knowledge in the two week at the branch I was also allotted distributor to
work with. In the initial phase I was accompanied by more experienced staff. After I
became known to the market and procedure I started attending calls alone only.
After the fourth week my performance also improved and I was able to get close to
the targets, Although it looked difficult to achieve in the beginning. To get awareness
of the every product I attended diversified calls. This helped me to implement cross
selling to get better result ,follow ups also play major role when we talk about cold
STRATEGY ADOPTED FOR SELLING DEMATS ACCOUNTS:
NOT INTERESTED TAKE REFRENCES
STRATEGY ADOPTED FOR TELECALLING :
COLLECTING MORE AND
MORE DATA THROUGH
AND BY USING JUST DAIL
I was supposed to use the database provided by the company to make cold calls or by
directly meeting people to get new leads.
While making cold calls, we need to have:
1. Good Communication Skills (Voice quality is clear and articulate)
2. Persistent and able to bounce back from rejection
3. Good organizational skills.
4. Ability to project a telephone personality (Enthusiasm, friendliness)
5. Flexibility: can adapt to different types of clients and new situations.
Using a good database is very essential
“Eighty percent of our business comes from 20 percent of our customers" is a
frequent statement at any sales convention. There's hardly a sales executive who is not
aware of the 80/20 rule”.
While talking to customers, I analyze their needs. Whether they want to go for
investment purpose or insurance or both. Suggest them the plan that best suits them. If
they agree to it then either we send across the agents to close the deal or close it
MY PERSONAL EXPERINCE IN SHAREKHAN
Before my Summer Internship Programme, I had very little knowledge about the
stock market and its fundamentals. And now after undergoing training for the 6th
week at Sharekhan there is a tremendous increase in my knowledge about the stock
market. I have also gained a lot of knowledge about the Sharekhan Company and its
various products, schemes and policies and also about its competitors. The products
which I have sold up till now are Demat accounts . And I am confident about my
knowledge about demat accounts . Although nobody can claim complete expertise but
there is a sea change at least from my point of view. I have learnt what are the various
indices and their significance in market. I have also learnt the impact of Sensex and
Nifty on overall stock market. I have learnt about various fundamentals and technical
aspects, which affect the stock prices in short, run and long run. At Sharekhan we
have also been taught to use the online terminal. Sharekhan is one of the top retail
brokerage houses in India with a strong online trading platform. The company
provides equity based products (research, equities, derivatives, depository, margin
funding, etc.). It has one of the largest networks in the country with 1000 share shops
in 375 cities and India‟s premier online trading portal www.sharekhan.com.Out of
these we have to mostly sell demat accounts.In the first week we had training sessions
for 5 days in which our company guide Mr. Gaurav chowdhary gave us the complete
information about the company, its products and policies. He gave us tips on how to
open and close the calls. He also gave me tips on how to do telecalling. He also share
information on how to fill the KYC form and what are the documents required to
open the demat account.
Then finally after this we were sent to the market to bring demat accounts and Mutual
funds. Initially we faced many obstacles and reasons were many like bad stock market
conditions and we were unable to locate potential market etc. but slowly I collected a
good number of leads and references from whom so ever I met. I am still following
the clients who are giving follow up dates.
Our main task is to sell the online demat account. During this venture I came across
many people who came from different walks of life. I have learned how to deal with
them and convince them to open the demat account with Sharekhan. Selling a demat
account requires special focus on targeting the customers. Each and every person does
not invest in the share market. The person who will be investing in the share market
should have at least the basic knowledge about the same or should have the curiosity
to gain the same. So what I had to do is to identify the prospective client and then try
to convince them. Wasting time on the customer who does not know anything about
stock market is completely worthless.
While on the call if customer asks me any query about which I am not very much sure
then I call our Gaurav chowdhary sir who then clears my doubts and queries without
any irritation. This not only solves clients query but also makes our concepts clear and
I initially met roundabout 15 to 20 people every day. Out of these I found 5 to 6
persons who took actual interest in the Demat account and Mutual funds. As I met
more and more people, I learned how to identify the prospective clients. I came to
know more about how to talk to them, how much time should be given to each client.
. Even, by solving the customer queries, my own understandings were enhanced.
While selling our product in the market, I also came to know more about our
competitor's product like, ICICIDirect, India bulls, Anand rathi, ,Angel Broking etc.
and their strategy of marketing and the consumer's preference towards the
I did cold calling in these 6 week and created my own database through it. In the
fourth week some of the follow-ups from the third week started converting.
Sharekhan also started giving advertisement in leading English dailies and on
channels like CNBC where the customers care toll free number is displayed.
Sharekhan also started giving ads on the various sites like Yahoo, Google etc.
Sharekhan also started a scheme of free demat account opening and also the one in
which the brokerage reduces to half of the original brokerage of 0.03% for Intraday
and 0.30% for Delivery.
I met people in different locations i.e. at like in Gandhi nagar, satwari ,sanik colony
,janipur, new plot jammu ,garnai udhampur etc. This includes people from the Big
Showrooms and malls like Big Bazzar, Chartered Accountants, Travel agents,
business people, housewives, real estate people, Customer Relationship Managers,
Assistant Sales Manager, and engineers of Afcon company.
Once the customer fills up the KYC form, I call him/her after 5 working days to check
if he has received the welcome kit which contains the login ID and password from
Bombay office of Sharekhan. After he receives the kit I have to go to his place to
install the software in his computer and also I have to tell him how to trade online i.e.
I have to explain him the complete terminal. I am required to show the customer how
to make a transaction and how to get access to the terminal. Also, if the client faces
any problem, then those too had to be solved by me. So, it is all a very good learning
experience for me.
We have to take about 25 signatures of the customer on the KYC form. This is again a
big challenge because they say that now they don`t have enough time to sign in 25
places. And if the sign mismatches even a little then there is again some long
procedure to make that form acceptable. I had faced this kind of situation. My second
client Mr Rakesh Sharma signature on the KYC form was different from that on his
PAN card. So the form got rejected. And he even said that if this form will not
proceed further then he don`t want to open the Demat account and asked me to return
the cheque. Due to this I was very depressed for 2-3 days But then maybe I called him
at a right time as he instantly asked me come and collect the bank proof statement and
I was very happy that day.
At Sharekhan, the atmosphere is perfectly cordial. There are senior trainees and back
office people always to solve the difficulties we faced in approaching a customer,
filling up the form, demonstrating the terminal, or solving the customer‟s queries.
Even our Gaurav sir helped us in solving our problems. We are supposed to be
formally dressed and required to report once daily at any time.
In the beginning we were asked to report twice a day but then after 4 weeks he asked
to report only once a day. This was done because our office is at bahu plaza, South
block and if we any appointment in Udhampur then it is very difficult for us to go
and report in the office second time. As time passes away everything goes alright.
Problems faced while selling products:
1. Customer dissatisfied with the services.
2. People fear that Sharekhan Being a Private company .
3. Past experience, word of mouth.
4. Misguidance by agents.
5. People do not want insurance products.
6. Lack of knowledge and less awareness about demat account.
7. People risk appetite is very low, so they are afraid of mutual fund as well.

1) Due to bad market conditions people are becoming more and more pessimistic
about investing in the share market. After the deprication of rupee upto the
level of Rs 60, SENSEX fell tremendously from 21000 . In this crash many
people lost their money amounting from 2 Lakhs to 4-5 crore or even more. So
when we approach them they tell us how much they used to trade in shares
and how much money they have lost in the share market. They even tell us
that we are doing our training at very wrong time.
2) While telecalling sometimes the clients do not give positive response, may be
because they are really busy or may be not interested in the demat accounts.
3) While cold calling when we met the owners of big shops. They said that if
they had spare money they will invest it in their shops and not in the share
market. They don`t want to take risk.
4) There are some negative rumors in the market about Sharekhan ltd. some
people have very bad experience with Sharekhan in terms of services and
charges. This may not be the fault of the company but of some of the
marketing executives who don`t disclose all the details about charges and
products and once the demat account has been opened they don`t pay any
attention to their old clients and thus fail to give proper services to the clients.
5) Sharekhan takes no charges for opening Demat accounts but there is a initial
deposit of Rs.10,000/-. It is just a margin money which has to be kept with
Sharekhan till the account opens. As soon as the account opens this money can
be kept as it is in the demat account or it can be completely used for buying
shares or it can be partially used and the rest of the amount can be withdrawn.
But clients fail to understand this. They think that these are the charges they
start suspecting it. So it‟s very difficult to convince them to deposit that much
amount and open a demat account.
Points To Remember
1) You may choose your DP based on your evaluation of their reputation, service
standards, charges, other conveniences, etc.
2) Account opening procedure should typically take 2-5 days.
3) In case of a minor, the depository account should be opened in the name of the
minor and the guardian‟s name should be mentioned. The guardian will sign
as signatory on behalf of the minor. For selling the securities of the minor, a
court order should be obtained.
4) In case of any difficulties, contact your DP.
5) Only securities admitted by NSDL can be dematerialized. The list is available
with your DP.
6) Only securities registered in the name of the account holder can be
7) Dematerialization is normally completed within 15 days after the share
certificates have reached the issuer/their R&T Agent. Thus it may take you a
month from the date you hand over shares, to receive demat credit.
8) Dematerialization would be done only when the issuer / their R&T Agent is
satisfied of genuineness of securities & ownership status
9) All the joint holders should sign the DRF.
10) Demat requests with name(s) not matching exactly with the name(s) appearing
on the certificates merely on account of initials not being spelt out fully or put
after or prior to the surname, would be processed, provided the signature(s) of
the client(s) on the DRF tallies with the specimen signature(s) available with
the issuer/ their R & T agent.
11) If the signature in the DRF does not match with the signature available with
the issuer/ their R & T agent, the issuer/ their R & T agent may at the time of
demat confirmation, ask for additional documentation (like bank attestation/
notarization, etc.) to prove that the certificate belongs to the person who
forwarded the DRF.
12) In case there is any problem in processing the DRF, contact your DP and if he
cannot resolve the problem you may contact NSDL
