……………………….. Ms. Khushbu Vora Project Guide
Myself Ashish L. Sorathiya, student of Vivekanand College for B.B.A. who is presently undertaking education in the spare of “Bachelor of Business Administration” which covers total business activities. As students of management, I must be encouraged by the growth and rapid developments taken place in Various Sectors, in India. Still
recently, management is growing baby. Keeping in mind the ever development field of management and great demand for Finance in our country, our university (VNSGU) has arranged specialization program in many field of management. Thus, it is our moral and obligatory duty to take this part of our studies with great enthusiasm and seriousness and give it the due importance. My report gives information about the “Behavior of Investors for Investing in Various sectors regarding Equity market”. The report contains graphical representation & interpretation with each graphs and charts. For the preparation of this report, I have used simple random sampling method for survey purpose. This training proved to be an experience, which is required to become a true student of management and administration.
Days were gone when people only invest their money in Post offices or in Banks and another safely fixed return investment. Today people have several choices for the investment alternatives. Now a day, one of the most emerging choices is to invest in equities shares. To get good return on investment, people are ready to take risks. Law always says that investors get HIGHER RETURN if they take HIGH RISK. For high risk there is one avenue to invest and that is Equity Market. This Project Focused On “INVESTORS BEHAVIOUR FOR INVESTING IN EQUITY MARKET IN VARIOUS SECTORS” IN SURAT CITY. Objectives behind this project are to know investors behavior for investing in various sectors regarding equity market, to know their preference of investment in equity market, and to know whether potential growth of equity market is there or not. I have used Descriptive Research Design because answers the questions who, what, where, when and how. This study is complex and determines high degree scientific skill to study the problem. Questionnaires are used for survey purpose and before going to actual survey pilot testing were also done. Sample size is of 175 respondents who are the actual and potential investors from whole of the equity market of Surat city and also from Sharekhan Securities Pvt. Ltd. Here, each sample has the chance to be selected on an equal basis because I have used simple random sampling method for surveying purpose. From research I found that 68% of investors are investing in Equity Market. While 36% of investors are not investing in Equity Market as per my sample size 175.
Means most of the customers are aware about Equity Market. There are certain customers who are also aware about equity market but, they not want to invest in equity market, Reasons for not investing in equity market is high risk and there are no any fixed returns criteria and Investors age also affect in risk factor. Means old person‟s risk bearing capacity is law so, investor‟s also select investment avenue as per his/her risk bearing capacity Equity share holder is real owner of the company in spite of their priority in getting dividend is comes last. Major Investors are investing in equity market only due to
earn high return and hedge the risk by investing their 5%-10% of income in Equity Market. 28% of investors invest in Equity market for the period of 1 to 3 Months and the same proportion of investors are invest for long period more than year. On the basis of research I found that, major investors have selected Oil & gas sector as a 1st Rank, IT sector as a 2nd Rank, Banking sector as a 3nd Rank, Automobile sector as a 4th Rank and Infrastructure sector as a 5nd Rank. Most of investors have considered Market trend, Price Earning Ratio, Dividend and Profitability as a most important factor while selecting the Sector and company under the sector. I have used SPSS software (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) for analysis purpose and in that I have used graphical
representation & interpretation with each graphs and charts and Microsoft Office is used for data typing formatting and analyzing the data.

OF BROKING FIRMS
INDUSTRY PROFILE OF BROKING FIRMS
The Indian retail brokerage industry consists of companies that primarily act as agents for the buying and selling of securities (e.g. stocks, shares, and similar financial instruments) on a commission or transaction fee or Brokerage basis. An agent that charges a fee or commission for executing buys and sell orders submitted by an investor. The firm that acts as an agent for a customer, charge the customer the commission for its service. Roles similar to that of a stockbroker include investment advisor, financial advisor and probably many others. A stockbroker may or may not be also an investment advisor. A stockbroker is a regulated professional broker who buys and sells shares and other securities through market makers or Agency Only Firms on behalf of investors. Typically, a broker who receives an order from a customer will communicate with a company employee located at a particular exchange, who will execute the order at the exchange and report details of the transaction to the broker. Customers typically keep their securities in an account with the broker. Brokers charge customers commissions for conducting transactions and fees for maintaining their accounts. Some of the main characteristics of the brokerage industry include growth in e-broking, decline in brokerage fees and growing derivative market and many more. There are several national as well as local players in stock trading services which are providing various services to their customers like online trading, portfolio management system, stock broking etc. They are helping the investors to take decision about where to invest because there is lots of Investment Avenue available with investors.

There is an increasing demand for online trading due to consumer‟s growing preference for Internet as compared to approaching the brokers. New forms of trading including T+2 settlement system, dematerialization etc. are strengthening the retail brokerage market and attracting foreign companies to enter the Indian industry Various alternative forms of investment including fixed deposits with banks and post offices etc act as substitutes to retail broking products and services.
Stock markets refer to a market place where investors can buy and sell stocks. The price at which each buying and selling transaction takes is determined by the market forces (i.e. demand and supply for a particular stock). A stock market is a public market for the trading of company stock and derivatives at an agreed price; these are securities listed on a stock exchange as well as those only traded privately. The size of the world stock market was estimated at about $36.6 trillion USD at the beginning of October 2008. The stock market is one of the most important sources for companies to raise money. This allows businesses to be publicly traded, or raise additional capital for expansion by selling shares of ownership of the company in a public market. In fact, the stock market is often considered the primary indicator of a country's economic strength and development. Rising share prices, for instance, tend to be associated with increased business investment and vice versa. In this way, investing in stock market, the stock exchanges also play importance role. Exchanges also act as the clearinghouse for each transaction, meaning that they collect and deliver the shares, and guarantee payment to the seller of a security. This eliminates the risk to an individual buyer or seller that the counterparty could default on the transaction. So, here we also understand about Stock Exchanges as follows.
A stock exchange is an entity which provides "trading" facilities for stock brokers and traders, to trade stocks and other securities. Stock Exchanges are an organised marketplace, either corporation or mutual organisation, where members of the organisation gather to trade company stocks or other securities. Stock exchanges also provide facilities for the issue and redemption of securities as well as other financial instruments and capital events including the payment of income and dividends. The securities traded on a stock exchange include: shares issued by companies, unit trusts, derivatives, pooled investment products and bonds. To be able to trade a security on a certain stock exchange, it has to be listed there. Usually there is a central location at least for recordkeeping, but trade is less and less linked to such a physical place, as modern markets are electronic networks, which gives them advantages of speed and cost of transactions. Trade on an exchange is by members only. The initial offering of stocks and bonds to investors is by definition done in the primary market and subsequent trading is done in the secondary market. A stock exchange is often the most important component of a stock market. Supply and demand in stock markets is driven by various factors which, as in all free markets, affect the price of stocks. There is usually no compulsion to issue stock via the stock exchange itself, nor must stock be subsequently traded on the exchange. Such trading is said to be off exchange or over-the-counter. This is the usual way that derivatives and bonds are traded. Increasingly, stock exchanges are part of a global market for securities.

History of BSE
The Bombay Stock Exchange is known as the oldest exchange in Asia. It traces its history to the 1850s, when stockbrokers would gather under banyan trees in front of Mumbai's Town Hall. The location of these meetings changed many times, as the number of brokers constantly increased. The group eventually moved to Dalal Street in 1874 and in 1875 became an official organization known as 'The Native Share & Stock Brokers Association'. In 1956, the BSE became the first stock exchange to be recognized by the Indian Government under the Securities Contracts Regulation Act. The Bombay Stock Exchange developed the BSE Sensex in 1986, giving the BSE a means to measure overall performance of the exchange. In 2000 the BSE used this index to open its derivatives market, trading Sensex futures contracts. The development of Sensex options along with equity derivatives followed in 2001 and 2002, expanding the BSE's trading platform. Historically an open-cry floor trading exchange, the Bombay Stock Exchange switched to an electronic trading system in 1995. It took the exchange only fifty days to make this transition.

Ensuring equal access to investors all over the country through an appropriate communication network,
Providing a fair, efficient and transparent securities market to investors using electronic trading systems,
Enabling shorter settlement cycles and book entry settlements systems, and

Theoretical aspect about topic
What is Investment?
“The money you earn is partly spent and the rest saved for meeting future expenses. Instead of keeping the savings idle you may like to use savings in order to get return on it in the future.” This is called Investment.
Why should one invest?
One needs to invest to:
Earn return on your idle resources Generate a specified sum of money for a specific goal in life Make a provision for an uncertain future
One of the important reasons why one needs to invest wisely is to meet the cost of Inflation. Inflation is the rate at which the cost of living increases. The cost of living is simply what it costs to buy the goods and services you need to live.
An investor is any party that makes an investment. An individual who commits money to investment products with the expectation
of financial return.
The term has taken on a specific meaning in finance to describe the particular
types of people and companies that regularly purchase equity or debt securities for financial gain in exchange for funding an expanding company.
Generally, Investors Behaviour regarding the any investment is primary concern with to minimize risk while maximizing return, as opposed to a speculator, who is willing to accept a higher level of risk in the hopes of collecting higher-than-average profits. While, some people are also believes in “High Risk, High Return” Many investors purchase a particular stock with the intention of making a big
profit over a short period of time. However, this action is not investing, but a pure gambling. The stock market is characterized by the trade-off between
risk and return. The higher the risk the investor is willing and able to take, the higher the potential rewards from the investment. Therefore, if a particular investment offers you high returns, it is an indication that it will come with a high risk burden. Some people are also believes in that there is no safe investment that will provide you with high returns over a short period of time. Therefore, you should direct your resources toward long-term investments that are more likely to reward you for the patience with high returns. Investors Behaviour regarding the financial investment is closely related with the “Behavioral Finance” and “Behavioral Economics” are closely related fields making up a separate branch of economic and financial analysis using social, cognitive and emotional factors in understanding the economic decisions of investors for investment, and their effects on market prices, returns and the allocation of resources.
Information of Equity Market & various sectors What is Equity Market?
“A market where investors buy and sell securities providing ownership of a company's shares.” The market in which shares are issued and traded, either through exchanges or over-the-counter markets. Also known as the stock market, it is one of the most vital areas of a market economy because it gives companies access to capital and investors a slice of ownership in a company with the potential to realize gains based on its future performance. Equity market, or stock market, is a system through which company shares are traded. The equity market offers investors an opportunity to participate in a company's success through an increase in its stock price. With enhanced
opportunity, however, the equity market usually carries greater risk than debt markets.
Indian Equity Market
The Indian Equity Market is more popularly known as the Indian Stock Market. The Indian equity market has become the third biggest
after China and Hong Kong in the Asian region. According to the latest report by ADB, it has a market capitalization of nearly $600 billion. As of March 2009, the market capitalization was around $598.3 billion (Rs 30.13 lakh crore) which is one-tenth of the combined valuation of the Asia region. The market was slow since early 2007 and continued till the first quarter of 2009.
The Indian equity market depends on three factors Funding into equity from all over the world Corporate houses performance Monsoons
The equity market is also affected through trade integration policy. The country has advanced both in foreign institutional investment (FII) and trade integration since 1995. This is a very attractive field for making profit for medium and long term investors, short-term swing and position traders and very intra day traders. The Indian market has 22 stock exchanges. The larger companies are enlisted with BSE and NSE. The smaller and medium companies are listed with OTCEI (Over The counter Exchange of India). The functions of the Equity Market in India are supervised by SEBI (Securities Exchange Board of India). The Indian Equity Market was not well organized or developed before independence. After independence, new issues were supervised. The timing, floatation costs, pricing, interest rates were strictly controlled by the Controller of Capital Issue (CII). In the 1950s, there was uncontrollable speculation and the market was known as „Satta Bazaar'. Speculators aimed at companies like-Tata Steel, Kohinoor Mills, Century Textiles, Bombay Dyeing and National Rayon. The Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956 was enacted by the Government of India. Financial institutions and state financial corporation were developed through an established network. Two new stock exchanges, NSE (National Stock Exchange of India) established in 1994 and OTCEI (Over the Counter Exchange of India) established in 1992 gave BSE a nationwide competition. In 1995-96, an amendment was made to the Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956 for introducing options trading. In April 1995, the National Securities Clearing Corporation (NSCC) and in November 1996, the National Securities Depository Limited (NSDL) were set up for demutualised trading, clearing and settlement.

INTRODUCTION OF VARIOUS SECTORS
A. Meaning of Sector:
“There are many companies or scrip that manufacturer the same products and provide services are specified under the particular name that called Industry or Sector.” There are many other different kinds of industries, and often organized into different classes or variety of industrial classifications it‟s called Sector.
In this report, I have study on these Five Sectors which are:
1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
• Oil & Gas Sector • Banking Sector • IT Sector • Infrastructure Sector • Automobile Sector
List of various sector: SECTORS
Agro Inputs Sector Agriculture Sector Auto Ancillaries Sector Automobile Sector Aviation Sector Banking Sector Cement Sector Chemicals Sector Cigarettes Sector Construction Sector Consumer Durables Sector Courier & Logistic Services Sector Cycle & Accessories Sector Engineering Sector Financial Institutions Sector Food Products Sector FMCG Sector Fertilizer Sector Garment Sector Health Care Sector IT Sector Insurance Sector Infrastructure Sector Mining Sector Media & Entertainment Sector Medical Sector Oil & Gas Sector Paint Sector Paper Sector Pharmaceutical Sector Petrochemicals Power Sector Real Estate Sector Retail Sector Sugar Sector Service Sector Shipping Sector Steel Sector Tele communication Sector Textiles Sector
INTRODUCTION OF selected SECTORS
1. Oil & gas Sector:
The oil & gas industry in recent years has been characterized by rising consumption of oil products, declining crude production & low reserve accretion. India remains one of the least-explored countries in the world, with a well density among the lowest in the world. India is the fourth largest oil consumption zone in Asia, even though on a per capita basis the consumption is a mere 0.1 tonne, the lowest in the region- This makes the prospects of the Indian Oil industry even more exciting. The oil and gas industry has been instrumental in fuelling the rapid growth of the Indian economy. The petroleum and natural gas sector which includes transportation, refining and marketing of petroleum products and gas industry constitutes over 15 per cent of the GDP. India's domestic demand for oil and gas is on the rise. As per the Ministry of Petroleum, demand for oil and gas is likely to increase which is 186.54 million tonnes in 2008-09. India is emerging as the global hub for oil refining with capital costs lower by 25 to 50 per cent over other Asian countries. Already, the fifth largest country in the world in terms of refining capacity, with a share of 3 per cent of the global capacity, India is likely to boost its refining capacity by 45 per cent or 65.3 to 242 mtpa (million tonne per annum) over the next five years.
2. Banking Sector:
Banking in India originated in the last decades of the 18th century. The oldest bank in existence in India is the State Bank of India, a
government-owned bank that traces its origins back to June 1806 and that is the largest commercial bank in the country. Central banking is the responsibility of the Reserve Bank of India, which in 1935 formally took over these responsibilities from the then Imperial Bank of India. The banking sector will navigate through all the aspects of the Banking System in India. It will discuss upon the matters with the birth of the banking concept in the country to new players adding their names in the industry in coming few years. The banker of all banks, Reserve Bank of India (RBI), the Indian Banks Association (IBA) & top 20 banks like IDBI, HSBC, ICICI, ABN AMRO, etc. With the Indian economy moving on to a high growth trajectory, consumption levels soaring & investment riding high, the Indian banking sector is at a watershed. Further, as Indian companies globalize & people of Indian origin increase their investment in India, several Indian banks are pursuing global strategies, In the Third Quarter Review of Monetary Policy for 2009-10, the RBI observed that the Indian economy showed a degree of resilience as it recorded a better-than-expected growth of 7.9 percent during the second quarter of 200910. The industry has been growing faster than the real economy, resulting in the ratio of assets of commercial banks to GDP increasing to 92.5 per cent at end-March 2007. The Indian banks have also been doing exceptionally well in the financial sector with the price-to-book value being second only to china, according to a report by (BCG) Boston Consultancy Group.
3. IT Sector:
Over the past decade, the Information Technology (IT) industry has become one of the fastest growing industries in India. The key segments that have contributed significantly (96 percent of total) to the industry‟s exports include – Software & services (IT services) & IT-enabled services (ITeS) i.e. business services. Over a period of time, India has established itself as a preferred global sourcing base in these segments & they are expected to continue to fuel growth in the future. At present, India is emerging as one of the popular Software outsourcing locations to offer cost effective software solutions. The contribution of India in Software Outsourcing is remarkable. One just can not reject the reality that currently India is described as the most prospering name in software outsourcing. Now there are several grounds for this flourishing popularity of the offshore IT outsourcing services of India. The prime reason for choosing India, as an offshore development partner in software outsourcing business is the availability of enormous pool of educated manpower combined with world-class quality offerings. The Indian information technology (IT) industry has played a key role in putting India on the global map. Thanks to the success of the IT industry, India is now a power to reckon with. According to the National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM), the apex body for software services in India, the revenue of the information technology sector has risen from 1.2 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP) in FY 1997-98 to an estimated 5.8 per cent in FY 2008-09. Further, the industry body expects the sector to grow between 4 per cent and 7 per cent during 2009-10 and return to over 10 per cent growth next year. India's IT growth in the world is primarily dominated by IT software and services such as Custom Application Development and Maintenance (CADM), System Integration, IT Consulting, Application Management, Software testing, and Web services.
According to NASSCOM, software and services exports (including exports of IT services, business process outsourcing (BPO), engineering services and research and development (R&D) and software products) reached US$ 47 billion in FY 2008-09, contributing nearly 78 per cent to the total software and services revenue of US$ 59.6 billion. India's domestic market has also become a force to reckon with, as the existing IT infrastructure evolves both in terms of technology and depth of penetration. According to NASSCOM, domestic IT market (including hardware) reached US$ 24.3 billion in FY 2008-09 as against US$ 23.1 billion in FY 200708, a growth of 5.3 per cent.
The Andhra Pradesh Government expects the IT-related SEZs and Software Technology Parks of India (STPI) in the State to receive about US$ 3.27 billion investments in the next five years.
Mahindra Satyam has tied up with defence and security company Saab to develop its operations in India for the global defence and homeland security market. The estimated deal value is US$ 400 million.
San Francisco-based Virtualisation solutions provider VMware Inc plans to invest US$ 100 million in India by end 2010.
The total investments of EMC Corporation, a leading global player of information infrastructure solutions, in India will touch US$ 2 billion by 2014.
The Indian information technology sector continues to be one of the sunshine sectors of the Indian economy showing rapid growth and promise.
4. Infrastructure Sector:
Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structures needed for the operation of a society or enterprise, or the services and facilities necessary for an economy to function. The term typically refers to the technical structures that support a society, such as roads, water supply, sewers, power grids, telecommunications, and so forth. India's Infrastructure has been expanding at an accelerated pace to support the economic growth rate of over 9 per cent. The six coreinfrastructure industries, which account for a combined weight of 26.68 percent in the index of industrial production (IIP), registered a growth of 8.6 percent in 2006-07 as against 6.2 percent during 2005-06. The growth has continued apace during the current fiscal, with the six core-infrastructure industries growing at the rate of 6.9 percent during AprilSeptember 2007. Significantly, electricity recorded a growth rate of 7.6 per cent compared to 6.7 per cent in the same period last year. Other sectors recording major growth include: petroleum refinery products (9.8 per cent), cement (8.3 per cent) & finished (carbon) steel (6.6 per cent). Infrastructure investment in India is set to grow dramatically accelerated by 5.3 percent in 2008-09. India has become a major outbound investor and people are engaging with Indians to seek investment into their countries, said the Minister for Road Transport and Highways, Mr
Kamal Nath,According to investment banking company Goldman Sachs, India's infrastructure sector will require US$ 1.7 trillion investment in the next 10-years. It also added that such investment would come more from the domestic market than overseas.
5. Automobile Sector:
Automobile industry is one of the fastest growing industries of the world. With more than 2 million new automobiles rolling out each year, on roads of India, the industry is set to grow further.
Automobile industry made its silent entry in India in the nineteenth century. Since the launch of the first car in 1897, India automobile industry has come a long way. Today India is the largest three wheeler market in the world and is expected to take over China as the second largest automobile market, in the coming years. Some facts on Automobile industry in India:
India has the fourth largest car market in the world India has the largest three wheeler market in the world India is the second largest producer of two wheelers in the world India ranks fifth in the production of commercial vehicles The growth of the Indian middle class along with the growth of the
economy over the past few years has attracted global auto majors to the Indian market. Moreover, India provides trained manpower at competitive costs making India a favoured global manufacturing hub. The attractiveness of the Indian markets on one hand and the stagnation of the auto sector in markets such as Europe, US and Japan on the other have resulted in shifting of new capacities and flow of capital to the Indian automobile industry. Global auto majors such as Japanese auto majors Suzuki, Honda and Korean car giant Hyundai are increasingly banking on their Indian operations to add weight to their businesses, even as numbers stay uncertain in developed markets due to economic recession and slowdown.
According to figures released by the Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers (SIAM), domestic passenger car sales have increased 32.28 percent to reach 145,905 units in January 2010 from 110,300 units in the same month last year. Across all categories, total sale of vehicles increased 44.94 per cent to 1,114,157 units in January 2010, against 768,698 units in the January 2009. The Indian auto industry is likely to see a growth of 10-12 percent in sales in 2010, according to a report by the global rating firm. India has become the second-largest maker of small cars, overtaking Brazil. Small cars account for 80 per cent of the domestic market (up from 75 per cent last year) and exports are growing at top speed. According to SIAM, small car exports rise 53 percent between April and September 2009 to 197,249 units against 129,090 units a year ago. In order to make India a power to reckon with in the automotive sector the government launched the Automotive Mission Plan (AMP) 2006-2016.
The vision of the AMP is "to emerge as the destination of choice in the world for design and manufacture of automobiles and auto components with output reaching a level of US$ 145 billion accounting for more than 10 per cent of the GDP and providing additional employment to 25 million people by 2016." As per the AMP, it is estimated that the total turnover of the automotive industry in India would be in the order of US$ 122 billion - US$ 159 billion in 2016. Further, by 2016, the automotive sector would double its contribution to the country's GDP from current levels of five percent to 10-12 per cent.

INTRODUCTION OF CAPITAL MARKET
Capital market is the markets for funds which have a long or undefined maturity i.e. it deal with long term funds. Generally capital market supplies long term and medium term securities and funds, which have a maturity period of above one year. Capital market generates the funds from the saver and transfer to user. Generally it done with ordinary share, stocks, debentures and bonds of corporations and securities of the government. They do so by converting financial assets into productive physical assets. Capital market provides a market mechanism for those who have savings and to those who need funds for productive investments. It diverts resources from wasteful and unproductive channels to productive investment.
The Capital Market:
The origination of the Indian securities market may be traced back to 1875, when 22 enterprising brokers under a Banyan tree established the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE). Over the last 133 years, the Indian securities market has evolved continuously to become one of the most dynamic, modern and efficient securities markets in Asia. Today, Indian markets conform to international standards both in terms of structure and in terms of operating efficiency. A capital market is a market for securities (debt or equity), where business enterprises (companies) and governments can raise long-term funds. It is defined as a market in which money is provided for periods longer than a year, as the raising of short-term funds takes place on other markets
Structure and Size of the Markets:
Corporation of the exchanges assumes the counter-party risk of each member and guarantees settlement through a fine-tuned risk management system and an innovative method of online position monitoring. It also ensures the financial settlement of trades on the appointed day and time irrespective of default by members to deliver the required funds and/or securities with the help of a settlement guarantee fund. Today India has two national exchanges, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and the National Stock Exchange (NSE). Each has fully electronic trading platforms with around 9400 participating broking outfits. BSE reaches to over 400 cities and town nation-wide and has around 4,937 listed companies, with over 7745 scripts being traded as on 31st July 09. The companies listed on BSE command a total market capitalization of USD Trillion 1.06 as of July, 2009.
NSE has a market capitalization of around Rs 47,01,923 crore (7 August 2009) There are some 9600 companies listed on the respective exchanges. Any market that has experienced this sort of growth has an equally substantial demand for highly efficient settlement procedures. In India 99.9% of the trades, according to the (NSDL)
National Securities Depository Limited, are settled in dematerialized form in a T+2 rolling settlement environments. In addition, trades are guaranteed by the National Clearing Corporation of India Ltd (NSCCL) and Bank of India Shareholding Ltd (BOISL), Clearing Corporation houses of NSE and BSE respectively. The main functions of the Clearing Corporation are to work out (a) what counter parties owe and (b) what counter parties are due to receive on the settlement date. Furthermore, each exchange has a Settlement Guarantee Fund to meet with any unpredictable situation and a negligible trade failure of 0.003%.
Highlights of the highly attractive Indian capital markets:
Two major reasons why Indian securities are now increasingly regarded as attractive to international investors are: 1. The relatively high returns compared with more developed global markets as well as the low correlation with world markets. 2. However until the early 90s, the foreign investors‟ only way of accessing the Indian capital markets was through listed country funds
India’s Security Market
A Brief History “The capital market is one of the most exciting sectors in the financial system, marking an important contribution to economic development.” Asia Focus was launched by the Unit Trust of India (UTI) in London in 1986. The success of this initiative ensured that this fund was followed by numerous others. Indian companies are now also allowed to raise equity capital in the international market through the issue of GDRs. In 2004, there are 498 Foreign Institutional Investors who hold 1325 sub-accounts with a net investment of approximately $15 billion. India‟s regulator, the Securities Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is playing more of a development role rather than being merely a watchdog. Transparency, competitiveness and equal opportunity to all market participants has been the driving philosophy behind all the development and regulatory initiatives of SEBI. The availability of derivative products including index futures, index options, individual stock futures and individual stock options re-enforces the overall attractiveness of this market to foreign and domestic investors. The derivatives market in only two years has shown spectacular growth. Compared to last financial year the annual turnover grew by over 300%. As if further evidence was needed of India‟s willingness to embrace change, the availability of Internet trading and dual fungibles of American Depository Receipts (ADRs) and Global Depository Receipts (GDRs) provides a clear indication of the vibrancy and dynamism of the Indian securities market.

CHART OF CAPITAL MARKET
Industrial Security Market

Types of Capital/Security Market:
The securities market can be divided in to three parts: A. Industrial securities market B. Government securities market C. Long term loans market
A. Industrial Security Market:
The industrial securities market consists of two complementary parts i.e. the New Issue Market, and Secondary Market. It is a market for industrial securities namely: (i) Equity shares or ordinary shares or common stock. (ii) Preference shares (iii) Debenture or Bonds.
The corporate sector raises their capital through these above three types of securities. This is the physical or tangible asset through which the market functions.
1. Equity Shares:
Equity shares represent proportionate ownership in the company. Investors who own equity shares of a company are entitled to ownership rights, like voting for selection of directors on the Board, share in profits of the company, etc. Investors who own equity shares in a company are called shareholders.

after China and Hong Kong in the Asian region. According to the latest report by ADB, it has a market capitalization of nearly $600 billion. As of March 2009, the market capitalization was around $598.3 billion (Rs 30.13 lakh crore) which is one-tenth of the combined
valuation of the Asia region. The market was slow since early 2007 and continued till the first quarter of 2009.
2. Preference Shares:
“Stock whose holders are guaranteed priority in the payment of dividends but whose holders have no voting rights” Preference shareholders do not have voting rights. They generally bear a fixed dividend, payable if the company declares dividends. Preference shares have different features and are accordingly available as: Cumulative and non-cumulative preference shares Redeemable and non-redeemable preference shares Convertible and non-convertible preference shares Preference shares with a combination of the above features.

While the size of Indian dept market is 239.2 (US$ billion) which is 34.5% of GDP as on 2004 -05. Many financial institutions like IDBI, ICICI, and IFCI, have been raising capital for their operations by issuing of bonds. These too are available in a large variety. These include Income bonds, Tax-free bonds, Capital gains bonds, Infrastructure bonds, Retirement bonds etc…
Company raises it capital in the primary market though:
1) Primary Market (New Issue Market):
Primary market is the market for those securities which are issued first time in the market for the public. The New Issue Market deals with new securities i.e. securities which were not previously availably and are offered to the investing public for the first time. Primary market is a market for new issues or new financial claims. Hence, it is called New Issue Market. In the Primary market, borrowers exchange new financial securities for long term funds. It facilitates capital formulation. Companies raise its capital in the primary market though: (i) (ii) Public Issue Right Issue
(iii) Primary placement/subscription Public Issue is most popular method of raising capital is sale of securities to the public by new companies is called Public Issue. Right Issue means, when existing company first offered. The security to existing shareholders on Pre–emptive bases, while company want to raise additional capital is called capital is called Right Issue. Private placement imagine private sale of securities to small group investors.
2) Secondary Market:
Secondary market is the market for those securities which have already been available in the market and listed on a stock exchange. The main benefit of Secondary market is securities sold and purchased continuously among investors without involvement of company. This market consists of all stock exchange recognized by the Government of India. The stock exchange in India are regulated under the securities contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956.
B. Government Security Market:
The government securities market (G-secs) is the largest segment of the long term debt market in India, accounting for nearly two-thirds of the issues in the primary market and more than four –fifths of the turnover in the secondary market. It is otherwise called Gilt-Edged securities market. It is a market where Government securities are traded. In India there are many kinds of Government Securities-short term and long term. Long term securities are traded in this market while short term securities are traded in the money market. Securities issued by the Central Government, State Government, Semi –Government authorities like city Corporation, Port Trusts etc. Improvement Trusts, State Electricity Boards, All India and State level financial institutions and public sector enterprise are dealt in this market.
Participants in the G-secs Market:
Banks are the largest holders of G-secs. About one–third of the net demand and time liabilities of the banks are partly in government securities market mainly to meet statutory liquidity requirements and partly for investment purpose. Other investor in G-secs includes mutual funds, primary and satellite dealers, and trusts. Government securities are issued in denominations of RS. 100. Interest is payable half- yearly and they carry tax exemptions also. The role of brokers in marketing these securities is practically very limited and the major participant in this market in the “commercial banks” because they hold a very substantial portion of these securities to satisfy their S.L.R. requirements. The secondary market for these securities is very narrow since most of the institutional investors tend to retain these securities until maturity.
The Government securities are in many forms. These are generally: (i) (ii) (iii) Stock certificates of inscribed stock Promissory Notes Carrier Bonds which can be discounted.
Government securities are sold through the Public Debt Office of the RBI while Treasury Bills are sold through auctions. Government securities offer a good soured of raising inexpensive finance for the Government exchequer and the interest on these securities influences the prices and yields in this market. Hence this market also plays a vital role in monetary management.
C. Long Term Loan Market:
Development banks and commercial banks play a significant role in this market by supplying long term loans to corporate customers. Long term loans market may further be classified into: (i) (ii) (iii) Term loans market Mortgages market Financial Guarantees market
Term Loans Market:
Term loans: A loan from a bank for a specific amount that has a specified repayment schedule and a floating interest rate. Term loans almost always mature between 1 and 10 years. In India, many industrial financing institutions have been created by the Government both at the national and regional levels to supply long term and medium term loans to corporate customers directly as well as indirectly. These development banks dominate the industrial finance in India.
Institutions like IDBI, IFCI, ICICI, and other state financial corporations come under this category. These institutions meet the growing and varied long term loans. They also help in identifying investment opportunities, encourage new entrepreneurs and support modernization efforts.
The mortgage market refers to these centers which supply mortgage loan mainly to individual customers. A mortgage loan is a loan against the security of immovable properly like real estate. The transfer of interest in a specific immovable properly to secure a loan is called mortgage. These mortgages may be equitable mortgage or legal one. Again it may be a first charge of title deeds to properties as security whereas in the case of a legal mortgage the title in the property is legally transferred to the lender by the borrower. Legal mortgage is less risky. Similarly, in the first charge, the mortgages transfer his interest in the specific property to the mortgagee as security. When the properly in question is already mortgaged once to another creditor, it becomes a second charge when it is subsequently mortgaged to somebody else. The mortgagee can also further transfer his interest in the mortgaged property to another, in such a case; it is called a sub mortgage. The mortgage market may have primary market as well secondary market. The primary market consists of original extension of credit and secondary market has sales and re-sales of existing mortgages at prevailing prices. In India residential mortgages ate the most common ones. The Housing and Urban Development Corporation and the LIC play a dominant role in financing residential projects. Besides, the Land Development Banks provides cheap mortgages loans for the development of lands, purchase of equipment etc. These development banks raise finance through the sale of debentures which are treated as trustee securities.
Financial Guarantees Market:
“Financial Guarantees is a non-cancelable indemnity bond guaranteeing the timely payment interest and repayment of principal to the buyers (holders) of a
debt security at a maturity date.”
A guarantees market is a centre where finance is provide against the guarantee of a reputed person in the financial circle. Guarantee is a contract to discharge the liability of a third party in case of his default. Guarantee acts as a security from the creditor‟s point of view. In case the borrower fails to repay the loan, the liability falls on the shoulders of the guarantor. Hence the guarantor must be known to both the borrower and the lender and he must have the means to discharge his liability. Though there are many types of guarantees, the common forms ate: (i) (ii) Performance Guarantee Financial Guarantee
Performance guarantees cover the payment of earnest money, retention money, advance payments, non-completion of contracts etc. On the other hand financial guarantees cover only financial contracts. In India, the market for financial guarantees is well organized. The financial guarantees in India relate to: (i) (ii) (iii) Deferred payments for imports and exports Medium and long term loans raised abroad Loans advanced by banks and other financial institutions
These guarantees ate provided mainly by commercial banks, development banks, Governments both central and states and other specialized guarantee institutions like ECGC (Export Credit Guarantee Corporation) and DICGO (Deposit Insurance and Credit Guarantee Corporation). This guarantee financial service is available to both individual and corporate customers. For a smooth functioning of any financial system, this guarantee service is absolutely essential.
Capital Market Instruments
There are a number of capital market instruments used for market trade, including stocks, bonds, debentures, T-bills, foreign exchange, fixed deposits, and others. These are used by the investors to make a profit out of their respective markets. All of these are called capital market instruments because these are responsible for generating funds for companies, corporations, and sometimes national governments. This market is also known as securities market because long term funds are raised through trade on debt and equity securities. These activities may be conducted by both companies and governments. Stocks and bonds are the two basic capital market instruments used in both the primary and secondary markets. There are different types of capital market instruments…Like….

“A bond is a debt security, in which the authorized issuer owes the holders a debt and, depending on the terms of the bond, is obliged to pay
interest (the coupon) and/or to repay the principal at a later date, termed maturity.”
A bond is a formal contract to repay borrowed money with interest at fixed intervals. International Bond Market is very big and has an estimated size of nearly $47 trillion. The size of the US bond market is the largest in the world. The US bond market's outstanding debt is more than $25 trillion.
While the size of Indian dept market is 239.2 (US$ billion) which is 34.5% of GDP as on 2004 -05. Indian development financial institutions like IDBI, ICICI, and IFCI, have been raising capital for their operations by issuing of bonds. These too are available in a large variety. These include: Income bonds Tax-free bonds Capital gains bonds Deep discount bonds Infrastructure bonds Retirement bonds etc…
“Stock whose holders are guaranteed priority in the payment of dividends but whose holders have no voting rights” Preference shareholders do not have voting rights. They generally bear a fixed dividend, payable if the company declares dividends. Preference shares have different features and are accordingly available as: Cumulative and non-cumulative preference shares Redeemable and non-redeemable preference shares Convertible and non-convertible preference shares Preference shares with a combination of the above features.
Equity shares represent proportionate ownership in the company. Investors who own equity shares of a company are entitled to ownership rights, like voting for selection of directors on the Board, share in profits of the company, etc. Investors who own equity shares in a company are called shareholders. They are ordinary shares with no guarantee of dividend. Equity shares gain maximum returns when there are high profits. As a shareholder, the extent of your ownership (your stake) in a company depends on the number of shares you own in relation to the total number of shares available For example, if you buy 1000 shares of stock in a company that has issued a total of 100,000 shares, you own one per cent of the company. A shareholder or a beneficial owner can exit from the ownership by selling the shares. An investor can become shareholder/beneficial owner of a company by purchasing shares of the company. Shareholders are entitled to share profit of the company in the form of "dividend" on "bonus shares", if Board of Directors and majority of the shareholders agree. If a company is wound up for any reason, equity shareholders may receive money from the residual funds after satisfying all other liabilities.
Government securities (G-secs) are sovereign securities which are issued by the Reserve Bank of India on behalf of Government of India. The term Government Securities includes: Central Government Securities State Government Securities Treasury bills The Central Government or State Governments issue securities periodically for the purpose of raising loans from the public. There are two types of Government Securities – I. II. Dated Securities Treasury Bills
Dated Securities: Dated Securities have a maturity period of more than one year. Treasury Bills: Treasury Bills have a maturity period of less than or up to one year. The Public Debt Office (PDO) of the Reserve Bank of India performs all functions with regard to the issue management, settlement of trade, distribution of interest and redemption. Although only corporate and institutional investors subscribe to government securities, individual investors are also permitted to subscribe to these securities. An investor has to approach RBI to receive government securities in physical form. Investors can invest in book entry form with Banks and other institutions like NSDL, SHCIL, and NSCCL etc. NSDL facility to buy and hold government securities is convenient because of its reach and depository account opened for other securities can be used for holding government securities.
Importance of Capital Market
Capital market is important as it plays an important role in bringing rapid industrial development in a country. The savings are invested profitably for economic development because of the services offered by capital market. Mobilization of investable surplus and provision of expert services to investors and companies are two significant activities undertaken by the capital market. Capital market is importance due to: It enables the investors to adopt their investment to their expectations which are constantly changing. It acts as a link between those who want to save funds and those who need funds and are in a position to invest them with safety and reasonable return. It provided the capital to those enterprises which can apply it profitably, productively and increase the aggregate national income. It provides proper flow of funds and brings about the rational allocation of resources through the conversion of financial assets into physical assets. Thus, the capital market facilitates capital formation. It provides incentives to saving and facilitates capital formation by offering suitable rate of interest as the price of capital. It facilitated buying and selling of securities at listed price by providing continuously marketability to the investors. The securities offered in the capital market are transferable in character. The changing business conditions in the economy are immediately reflected on capital market. Booms and depression can be identified by capital market. So suitable monitory and fiscal policies can be taken by government. Capital market supplies securities of different kinds with different maturity and yields in unable the investors to diversify their risk by wider portfolio of investment.
Research is one of the best instruments to identify the investing pattern of investors to invest in various sectors & to study different sectors of Capital market.
“Research is careful inquiry or examination to discover new information and relationship and to expand and to vary existing knowledge.” Research always starts with question or any problem and finds answer of problem by using scientific method. It gives complete knowledge about any problem or question.
Objective of Study (research):
Every study is conducted within for some specific purpose or to solve some problem. When any research is conducted it has some primary objective that helps to solve the main problem whereas a secondary objective helps to solve peripheral problems. The primary and secondary objectives of this research are:

LIMITATIONS OF THE STUDY:
As no human being is perfect, it is not possible for anyone to make the best or perfect report. Each person has some level of knowledge and is affected by some uncontrollable factors within which he/she has to work. So, it
might possible that there can be some limitations in this report that may be due to my knowledge level or some other factors. According to me following limitations can be prevailing in my report: Respondents might have felt hesitation in providing information related to their age, income etc. So, there can be some data that might questionable because of unwillingness of respondents to give right information. Sample selected may not represent whole population, as sample size selected is very small in proportion to population due to time and cost constraints. Even many of the respondents may give bias answer.
“Research design is the plan structure and strategy if investigation conceived so as obtain answers to research question and to control variance” A research design is the master plan or model for the conduct of formal investigation and survey. It is a specification of methods and procedures for acquiring the information needs for solving the problem. It decides the source of information and methods for gathering the data. A questionnaire and other forms are tested to use the collection of data. In the research study there is no perfect study to solve the problem. The research design has broadly three categories as follow.
I have used Descriptive Research Design for research purpose.
1. Exploratory Research 2. Descriptive Research 3. Casual Research
2. Descriptive Research:
Descriptive research, also known as statistical research. It describes data and characteristics about the population or phenomenon being studied. Descriptive research answers the questions who, what, where, when and how. This study is complex and determines high degree scientific skill to study the problem. The description is used for frequencies, averages and other statistical calculations. Often the best approach, prior to writing descriptive research, is to conduct a survey investigation. Qualitative research often has the aim of description and researchers may follow-up with examinations of why the observations exist and what the implications of the findings are. In short descriptive research deals with everything that can be counted and studied. In this report, I have used this Descriptive Research Design for conducting survey on “Investors behaviour for Investing in Equity Market in Various Sectors”
Data Collection Method:
Data collection usually takes place early on in an improvement project, and is often formalized through a data collection plan which often contains the following data collection methods. The source of data collection method is as follows. Primary Data Secondary Data
Primary data means data collected directly from first-hand experience. Means data collected for the first time by any researcher for any research use. There are many methods of collecting primary data and the main methods include: Methods of collecting the primary data are: Questionnaire method Interviews method Focus group interviews Observation method Case-studies method Diaries method
I have used Questionnaire method for the Primary data collection for the study.
Secondary data means data which are collected by any one for a particular research purpose and which are used by others for different purpose. I have also used the secondary data for the study like some company resources like broachers, websites etc.
“Sampling is the process to analyze the whole population by analyzing a part of it.” The effectiveness of the report depends on the sample size selected from the population.
Here, target population is decided who are the actual and potential investors, each sample has the chance to be selected on an equal basis & this research has been conducted through surveying the whole of the equity market of Surat city
For getting better result of the given problem I have to determine the perfect sample size as on 90% confidence level which is calculated statically by the given formula.
n = p*q (z /c) 2
Where, n = sample size p = percentage picking a choice (expressed as decimal) q = (1 - p) Z = Z value (e.g. 1.645 for 90% confidence level) c = confidence interval, expressed as decimal (e.g., 0.05 = ±5)
For Example: p = 0.80 z = 1.645 q = 0.20 c = 0.05
n = p*q (z /c) 2
= 0.80*0.20 (1.645/0.05) 2 = 173.1856 = 175 Therefore, I used sample size is 175
In statistics, a confidence interval (CI) is a particular kind of interval estimate of a population parameter. Instead of estimating the parameter by a single value, an interval likely to include the parameter is given.
Thus, confidence intervals are used to indicate the reliability of an estimate. The end points of the confidence interval are referred to as confidence limits. A confidence interval is always qualified by a particular confidence level, usually expressed as a percentage. The calculation of a confidence interval generally requires assumptions about the nature of the estimation. For example, Here, I have used a confidence interval of 0.05 and 80% percent of sample picks an answer is to be "sure" that if I had asked the question of the entire relevant population between 80% (100-20) and 20% (100-80) would have picked that answer.
The confidence level tells you how sure you can be. It is expressed as a percentage and represents how often the true percentage of the population who would pick an answer lies within the confidence interval. The confidence level associated with a confidence interval estimate is the success rate of the method used to construct the interval. The 90% confidence level means you can be 90% sure; When I put the confidence level and the confidence interval together, I can say that I am 90% sure that the true percentage of the population is between 20% and 80%. So, I have taken 90% confidence level means I am 90% sure. As on 90% confidence level value of Z = 1.645 Here, I have calculated formula on the basis of 90% confidence level.
Sampling frame is the actual set of units from which a sample has been drawn. In sampling frame, I have used simple random sampling method for conducting survey. In a simple random sample ('SRS') all units from the sampling frame have an equal chance to be drawn and to occur in the sample. Here, I have used sampling frame as an actual and potential investors from whole of the equity market of Surat city and also from Sharekhan Securities Pvt. Ltd. Here, each sample has the chance to be selected on an equal basis because I have used simple random sampling method for surveying purpose.
The response rate was average. I have used questionnaire method for the financial information of the respondent, most of the people hesitated to provide the required information and also the questionnaire contained some financial terms that were technical in nature, which resulted into reduced response rate. I have visited nearly 200 potential respondents, out of which only 175 gave proper response. Hence, Response Rate = 175/200 = 87.5%
Data analysis tools:
I have used SPSS software (Statistical Package for the Social Sciences) for analysis purpose. In that I have used Mean, Median, Mode, Frequency Table, and Cross Tabulation, Graphical representation & interpretation with each graphs and charts. Microsoft Office is used for data typing formatting and analyzing the data.

Recommendation to Investors:
Prefer investment for long term investment strategy that provides you moderate return with liquidity. Investors should not invest in only equity market but, also invest in other Safe Securities Like- Fixed Deposits, Government Securities, Bonds, Mutual fund and Insurance etc. which also provides return. For Example: One should prefer o Equity – 50% o Other Safe Securities – 50% So, one can get moderate return with liquidity. Investors should invest money at lower level price and sale the stock at higher price. Investors should select company on the basis of PE ratio, EPS, Current Growth of Company and Market capitalization and many more. So, investors can get higher return on their investment. Always invest extra money in stock market. Do not invest by taking loan from banks or other resources. moderate
Recommendation to Company:
From my research, I found that only 68% of investors are investing in equity market, so more focus should on 32% of investors who are not investing in equity market.
aggressively for long term investment purpose.
Majority of investors (53%) are investing secondary market (equity market) and very few (18%) investors are investing in Primary Market. So, here broking firm should promote to their client for investing in Primary Market also. Company should have to concentrate on those people who are not investing in Equity Market because of High risk than convert them in investing other security like-Mutual Fund, Bonds, and Insurance etc. which also provides moderate return. The Stock Broking firm should also provide better services to the investor to increase the satisfaction level of the investors.
Company should focus on students also because equity market has risk and the younger generation likes to take risk.
Majority investors are investing in Oil & gas sector and IT sector.
So, Company should also suggest to investors for investing other sector which is also profitable.
