Research Methodology-

INTRODUCTION

This report is based on primary as well secondary data, however primary data
collection was given more importance since it is overhearing factor in attitude
studies. One of the most important users of research methodology is that it helps in
identifying the problem, collecting, analyzing the required information data and
providing an alternative solution to the problem .It also helps in collecting the vital
information that is required by the top management to assist them for the better

RESEARCH DESIGN

TYPE OF RESEARCH

It is a descriptive type of research, as the descriptive of the conditions exist


presently. It includes survey and fact-finding enquiries of different kinds.

RESEARCH METHOD

Research methods are understood as all those methods and techniques that are used
for conduction of research. Research methods or techniques refer to methods the
researchers use in performing research operation. In other words, all those methods
which are used by the researchers during the course of studying his research
problems are termed as research methods. Since the object of research, particularly
the applied research, is to arrive at a solution for a given problem, the available
data and the unknown aspects of the problem have to be related to each other to
make a solution possible. Keeping this in view I took the following two methods:
 Analysis of documents
 Interview

COLLECTION OF DATA

 Primary data - This method was adopted because it helps to procuring data
and detail information from the respondents. Here I collected data by filling
questionnaires, directly talking to the respondents.

 Secondary data - I have also used the secondary data which include various
written documents and other related information about the mutual fund
industry in India.

informal talks and through filling up the questionnaire prepared. The data has been
analyzed by using mathematical/Statistical tool.

people had invested in Mutual Fund. Other 80 people did not have invested in
Mutual Fund.

 Possibility of error in data collection because many of investors may have
not given actual answers of my questionnaire.
 Sample size is limited to 200 numbers of investors & brokers, out of which
120 had invested in mutual fund. The sample size may not adequately
represent the whole market.
 Some respondents were reluctant to divulge personal information which can
affect the validity of all responses
 The research is confined to a certain part of Dalal Street or BSE.

large number of new players have entered the market and trying to gain
market share in this rapidly improving market.

Exchange, Mumbai where I completed my Project work. I surveyed on my
Project Topic “A study on why mutual fund is the better investment plan” by
