Initially, select DTDC outlets will house Reliance Money kiosks thereby increasing the number of footfalls across all these outlets. DTDC will be the first courier company in India to leverage Reliances brand name in the financial services sector and diversify its revenue stream by entering the Indian retail financial services distribution sector. With DTDCs distribution network, Reliance Money will be able to reach out to the smallest of investors in the remotest parts of India thereby achieving its objective of providing safe and secure financial services at a retail investors doorstep, said Mr. Sudip Bandyopadhyay, CEO & Director, Reliance Money Limited. Currently, Reliance Money along with its 44 own branches has over 1,000 franchisees spread across 100 locations all over India.

For Sify, it would mean an additional revenue stream. The initiative would allow us to tap unconventional channels of distribution. With an addition of over 6,000 franchisees

through the tie-up, we will add significantly to our existing distribution strength, Mr. Bandyopadhyayadded

Brief introduction to 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. What is demat account? Demat refers to a dematerialised account. Just as you have to open an account with a bank if you want to save your money, make cheque payments etc, you need to open a demat account if you want to buy or sell stocks. So it is just like a bank account where actual money is replaced by shares. You have to approach the DPs (remember, they are like bank branches), to open your demat account. Lets say your portfolio has 100 of Satyam, 200 of IBM and 120 of TCS shares. All these will show in your demat account. So you dont have to possess any physical certificates showing that you own these shares. They are all held electronically in your account. As you buy and sell the shares, they are adjusted in your account. Just like a bank passbook or statement, the DP will provide you with periodic statements of holdings and transactions. Is a demat account a must? Nowadays, practically all trades have to be settled in dematerialised form. Although the market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), has allowed trades of upto 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 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.

Indian market scenario

Indian capital market has seen unprecedented boom in its activity in the last 15 years in terms of number of stock exchanges, listed companies, trade volumes, market intermediaries, investor population, etc. However, this surge in activity has brought with it numerous problems that threaten the very survival of the capital markets in the long run, most of which are due to the large volume of paper work involved and paper based trading, clearing and settlement. Until the late eighties, the common man kept away from capital market and thus the quantum of funds mobilized through the market was meager. A major problem, however, continued to plague the market. The Indian markets were drowned in shares in the form of paper and hence it was problematic to handle them. Fake and stolen shares, fake signatures and signature mismatch, duplication and mutilation of shares, transfer problems, etc. The investors were scared and were under compensated for the risk borne by them. The century old system of trading and settlement requires handling of huge volumes of paper work. This has made the investors, both retail and institutional, wary of entering the capital market. However, lack of modernization become a hindrance to growth and resulted in creation of cumbersome procedures and paper work. However, the real growth and change occurred from mid-eighties in the wake of liberalization initiatives of the Government. The reforms in the financial sector were envisaged in the banking sector, capital market, securities market regulation, mutual funds, foreign investments and Government control. These institutions and stock exchanges experienced that the certificates are the main cause of investors` disputes and arbitration cases. Since the paper work was not matching the rapid growth so there was a need for a better system to ensure removal of these impediments.

Object of Demat System

India has adopted this system in which book entry is done electronically. It is the system where no paper is involved. Physical form is extinguished and shares or securities are held in electronic mode. Before the introduction of the depository system by the Depository Act, 1996, the process of sale, purchase and transfer of shares was a huge problem and the safety perspective was zero.

Prepaid Demat Account from reliance money

There are many broking houses doing business in India and they charge a brokerage on every transaction made online or offline. (Buying and Selling are treated as separate transaction). Reliance Moneys advantage over others is that its charging the lower brokerage in the market. Reliance Money, the brokerage and distribution arm of Reliance ADA Group, aims to tap investors in the smaller towns and cities through a flat fee structure. The current leaders in the retail broking segment like ICICI Direct, India Infoline and Indiabulls offer a pay per use model where the customer pays a percentage of the amount transacted by him. Reliance Moneys brokerage rates are quite competitive. The new wonder is Reliance Money's pre-paid card for stock market brokerage. Reliance Money, the financial services division of Anil Dhirubhai Ambani Group-promoted Reliance Capital, is bringing to the market pre-paid cards in denominations of Rs500, Rs1000, Rs2,500 and Rs5000 with validity period of annual, two months, six months and twelve months respectively. These cards would offer brokerage at one-third of the rate being charged by institutional and individual brokerage houses. Sample this. For a pre-paid card worth Rs1000, an investor can trade up to Rs90 lakh in futures and option segment or can undertake intra-day trade of similar amount. Besides, an investor can undertake a delivery-based activity of Rs10 lakh. The Rs2500 worth pre-paid card, total trading limit would reach Rs 3 crore, of which Rs 2.70 crore is for the F&O segment and balance Rs30 lakh for delivery-based activities. For Rs5000 pre-paid card, total trading limit is fixed at Rs7 crore, that include F&O limit of Rs6.3 crore and balance Rs 70 lakh for delivery-based broking.

Required Documents

The extent of documentation required to open a demat account may vary according to your relationship with the institution. If you plan to open a demat account with a bank, a savings, current and, or other account for which the holder have been issued a check book, such holder has an edge over the non-account holder. In fact, banks usually offer additional incentives to customers who open a demat account with them. Along with the application form, your photographs (with co-applicants) and proof of identity/residence/date of birth have to be submitted. The DPs also ask for a DP-client agreement to be executed on non-judicial stamp paper. Here is a broad list: A canceled check, preferably MICR Proof of Identification Proof of Address Proof of Pan card (mandatory) Recent photographs, one and, or more For proof of identification and, or address self-attested facsimile copies of PAN card, Voters ID, Passport, Ration card, Drivers license, Photo credit card, Employee ID card, Bank attestation, latest IT returns and, or latest Electricity/Landline phone bill are sufficient. While they only ask for photocopies of the documents, they will need the originals for verification.

Points To Remember
1. Only securities admitted by NSDL can be dematerialized. The list is available with your DP. 2. Only securities registered in the name of the account holder can be dematerialized. 3. 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. 4. Dematerialization would be done only when the issuer / their R&T Agent is satisfied of genuineness of securities & ownership status. 5. All the joint holders should sign the DRF. 6. The pattern of holding in the DRF should match the pattern of holding on the share certificate & the pattern in which account is opened. 7. 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. 8. 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/ notarisation, etc.) to prove that the certificate belongs to the person who forwarded the DRF. 9. In case there is any problem in processing the DRF, contact your DP and if he cannot resolve the problem you may contact NSDL.

The era between 1963 and 1987 marked the existence of only one mutual fund company in India with Rs. 67bn assets under management (AUM), by the end of its monopoly era, the Unit Trust of India (UTI). By the end of the 80s decade, few other mutual fund companies in India took their position in mutual fund market.The new entries of mutual fund companies in India were SBI Mutual Fund, Canbank Mutual Fund, Punjab National Bank Mutual Fund, Indian Bank Mutual Fund, Bank of India Mutual Fund.The succeeding decade showed a new horizon in Indian mutual fund industry. By the end of 1993, the total AUM of the industry was Rs. 470.04 bn. The private sector funds started penetrating the fund families. In the same year the first Mutual Fund regulations came into existence with re-registering all mutual funds except UTI. The regulations were further given a revised shape in 1996.Kothari Pioneer was the first private sector mutual fund company in India which has now merged with Franklin Templeton.

Advantages of Mutual Funds

Diversification: The best mutual funds design their portfolios so individual investments will react differently to the same economic conditions. For example, economic conditions like a rise in interest rates may cause certain securities in a diversified portfolio to decrease in value. Other securities in the portfolio will respond to the same economic conditions by increasing in value. When a portfolio is balanced in this way, the value of the overall portfolio should gradually increase over time, even if some securities lose value. Professional Management: Most mutual funds pay topflight professionals to

manage their investments. These managers decide what securities the fund will buy and sell. Regulatory oversight: Mutual funds are subject to many government regulations that protect investors from fraud. Liquidity: It's easy to get your money out of a mutual fund. Write a check, make a call, and you've got the cash. Convenience: You can usually buy mutual fund shares by mail, phone, or over the Internet. Low cost: Mutual fund expenses are often no more than 1.5 percent of your investment. Expenses for Index Funds are less than that, because index funds are not actively managed. Instead, they automatically buy stock in companies that are listed on a specific index Transparency Flexibility Choice of schemes Tax benefits Well regulated

Drawbacks of Mutual Funds

Mutual funds have their drawbacks and may not be for everyone: No Guarantees: No investment is risk free. If the entire stock market declines in value, the value of mutual fund shares will go down as well, no matter how balanced the portfolio. Investors encounter fewer risks when they invest in mutual funds than when they buy and sell stocks on their own. However, anyone who invests through a mutual fund runs the risk of losing money. Fees and commissions: All funds charge administrative fees to cover their day-to-day expenses. Some funds also charge sales commissions or "loads" to compensate

brokers, financial consultants, or financial planners. Even if you don't use a broker or other financial adviser, you will pay a sales commission if you buy shares in a Load Fund. Taxes: During a typical year, most actively managed mutual funds sell anywhere from 20 to 70 percent of the securities in their portfolios. If your fund makes a profit on its sales, you will pay taxes on the income you receive, even if you reinvest the money you made. Management risk: When you invest in a mutual fund, you depend on the fund's manager to make the right decisions regarding the fund's portfolio. If the manager does not perform as well as you had hoped, you might not make as much money on your investment as you expected. Of course, if you invest in Index Funds, you forego management risk, because these funds do not employ managers

In tune with the global stock markets that began to recover from the second half of 2003; Indian stock markets too witnessed rapid growth. Indias two leading indices, the most popular BSE Sensex, and the one most used by the markets the National Stock Exchanges S&P CNX Nifty rose to record levels. Both primary and secondary market activity experienced sharp surge. Much progress was made in further strengthening and streamlining risk management, market regulation and supervision. A few aspects of the major developments in the Indias stock markets are described below. And the insurance sector is also play an important role in the growth of the financial market. Market Structure Indian securities market is fairly large as compared to several other emerging markets. There are 22 stock exchanges in the country, though the entire liquidity is shared between the countriess two national level exchanges namely, the National Stock Exchange of India and the Bombay Stock Exchange Ltd. The regional stock exchanges are in pursuit of business models that make them viable and vibrant. Meanwhile, these exchanges have become members of the national level exchanges through formation of subsidiaries whose business is showing continuous growth and progress.The number of brokers in various stock exchanges rose from 6,711 in 1994-95 to 9,335 in FY06. The number of brokers in all the exchanges together peaked to 10,213 in the year FY01 but gradually declined thereafter when the regional stock exchanges began to lose business in the light of wide ranging market structure reforms introduced since then. In FY01, when the markets were in upswing, several regional stock exchanges were generating business owing to the availability of deferral products, such Badla and different settlement calendars prevailing at that time in these exchanges. For instance in FY01, the Delhi Stock Exchange registered cash market turnover of Rs 838.71 bn; Uttar Pradesh Stock Exchange, Rs 247.47 bn, Ludhiana Stock Exchange Rs 97.32 bn, Pune Stock Exchange Rs 61.71 bn as against Rs 13,395.11 bn of the turnover at the National Stock Exchange and Rs 10,000.32 bn turnover at the Bombay Stock Exchange. With the abolition of the deferral products and introduction of uniform T+2 settlement cycle, the liquidity in these exchanges flowed to the national level system consisting of NSE and BSE.

The most vital problem spotted is of ignorance. Investors should be made aware of the benefits. Nobody will invest until and unless he is fully convinced. Investors should be made to realize that ignorance is no longer bliss and what they are losing by not investing.

Mutual funds offer a lot of benefit which no other single option could offer. But most of

the people are not even aware of what actually a mutual fund is? They only see it as just another investment option. So the advisors should try to change their mindsets. The advisors should target for more and more young investors. Young investors as well as persons at the height of their career would like to go for The advisors may try to highlight some of the value added benefits of Mutual funds such advisors due to lack of expertise and time. as tax benefit, rupee cost averaging, and systematic transfer plan, rebalancing etc. these benefits are not offered by other options single-handedly. So these are enough to drive the investors towards mutual funds. Investors could also try to increase the spectrum of services offered. Now the most important reason for not availing the services of advisors was spotted was being expensive. The advisors should try to charge a nominal fee at the beginning. But if not possible then they could go for offering more services and benefits at the existing rate. They should also maintain their decency and follow the code of ethics so that the investors could trust upon them. Thus the advisors should try to attract more and more persons and turn them into investors and finally their clients.

With the globalize economy and immense competition among countries for faster

development of their respective economies, the significance of Insurance, Mutual Funds and Foreign investment has taken manifold. With a buoyant vibrant and experienced stock market, India today is looking ahead tosurpass China in terms of foreign Investment and growth prospects. Stock exchange being the barometer of the economy plays a vital role in showcasing growth of an economy and luring investment. While studying the role of Insurance, Mutual fund and FIIs in Stock Market, I discussed with a few persons who are into stock broking business. And the information they have provided shows that though the investment and participation of domestic investors are rising, still, they have not been able to prove themselves to be as influential as Insurance, mutual funds and FIIs. Importance and the role of Insurance, Mutual funds and FIIs play in the Indian stock market can be seen from the fact that the recent surge in Sensex and NIFTY is attributed to the active participation of FIIs in the Stock Market. Despite being aware of the Asian economic crisis where FIIs role was of a major concern, the importance of foreign capital in the development of economy can not be undermined in anyway.
