The Bombay Stock Exchange entered into an agreement with Zee Interactive Learning Systems (ZILS) for investor education through television. Initially, a pilot series of 26 episodes, to be called as "BSE Investor Awareness Program" will be aired three times a week for six months on Zed TV, a 24-hour learning channel launched by Zee Network.
The schedule of the telecast would be based on the target segment and would be decided by both the organisations. While BSE will provide contents, the presentation will be done by Zee.
Total cost of production would be around Rs 25 lakh for the first 26 episodes. The series is being aired from the first week of March next year.
The proposed program series would cover various aspects of the capital market including basics of investment and capital markets, trading clearing and settlement processes at stock exchanges, dematerialisation, depositories and custodial services, badla, derivatives, debt market and tax planning.
In another move, the Bombay Stock Exchange has launched a website "wap.bseindia.com" to help investors have an access to capital market related informations on their WAP enabled mobile phones.
The stock exchange will offer information such as stock prices, volumes, announcements and other general information, information on topper and losers, top ten corporate announcements on a particular day, graphical sensex movement etc.
