The Investor Education and Protection Fund Authority (IEPFA) and Common Service Centre (CSC) have jointly launched “Niveshak Sarathi” (translates to “Investor Guide” or “Investor Mentor”) Vans in Delhi-NCR as part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations.

Aim: The initiative aims to enhance financial literacy and awareness about fraudulent schemes in the region. The vans are equipped with a TV screen showcasing investor awareness movies, a public address system, and informative brochures.

Process: The initiative included sessions conducted by Village Level Entrepreneurs (VLEs) from IEPFA at key locations. Common Service Centre served as the knowledge partner for this campaign.

Usage: The example can be used in an Economy/ Ethics case study to show steps that can be used for improving financial literacy.
