In order to enable more and more common people or rather common investors to participate in the capital markets, the Government has decided to launch investor education Web sites in all regional languages. The govt. feels that with literacy levels being low in Indian society, making investor education Web sites available in regional languages will encourage more people to participate in the investment process and thus increase awareness among common people.
Dr Manmohan Singh – the prime minister of India will launch these investor education Web sites today (i.e., December 14) as a part of the India Corporate Week 2010′ which starts today. The Corporate Affairs Ministry of India has already been holding a lot of investor awareness programmes across the country with this year the number of programmes being a whopping 3,000 as compared to the last year count of only 300.
