Introduction
India's growth story has cast important implications on the capital market, which has grown sharply with respect to several parameters ranging from number of stock exchanges, other intermediaries and listed stocks to trading volumes, turnover, market instruments and investor population. The unprecedented growth indicates that the securities markets would require about 32,000 professionals every year. However, the roles in this area call for specialized knowledge and skills. Even the business graduates require longer gestation period to acquire the functional skills on the job. There is, therefore, the need to build a resource base of skilled professionals who can deliver first hour productivity.
