As an investor, it is extremely important to be aware of investment scams and avoid becoming a victim of one. Underscoring the importance of investor education, the SEBI has initiated an investor awareness campaign aimed at novice investors. The main aim of the campaign is to make investors aware of the risks of taking unsolicited financial tips from dubious sources and enable them to avoid falling into the trappings of schemes.
SEBI's awareness campaign aims to expose myths and educate beginner investors to avoid being taken for a ride by scammers, who provide false investment guidance. India has seen a huge surge in investments over the last few years, which has given rise in the number of frauds schemes.
The public interest campaign also seeks to enable novice investors in making better investment decisions by equipping them with genuine investment information. SEBI also provides guidelines for investing in mutual funds, shares and debentures, along with a comprehensive grievance redressal mechanism to help investors.
