MANTHAN: Finance Summit 2013

These days we see a plethora of new laws that have been introduced into the banking sector. Do these laws and policies actually serve as an enabler for growth? How should investors behave during a financial crisis? To build a clearer perspective regarding some of these topics Vitharth, The Finance Club of DOMS IIT, Roorkee organized Manthan 2013 on the 24th of February. The Event was graced by the presence of some eminent speakers from the industry, the esteemed faculty of the department and the students.

The event started with the traditional lighting of the lamp and the welcome note given by the head of department Dr. Santosh Rangnekar. This was followed by an introduction regarding the theme of the event by Dr. A.K. Sharma. He stressed on the fact that during these troubled economic times how the banking sector had to balance the lending aspect at the precise rates to the common people as well as provide financial assistance to the industries. He also stated that the three main goals of this sector were priority lending, rural banking and Financial inclusion.

The next speaker to take the Dias was Mr. Paresh Seth, CEO at Indus Advantage iBank. Mr. Seth stated right from the outset that he promoted a free market economy. He felt that the idea of introducing new players into the sector was not very prudent as it to incur additional uninvited costs. Whatever changes were to be implemented could have been done with the existing players in the sector at a fraction of the cost. He also stated that even though new players would give cause to rise in employment in the sector that it would be short lived as some players would end up exiting.
