The year 2013-14 has been quite eventful for India. We saw the rupee crashing to an all -time low on account of Current Account Deficit and at the same time the capital markets hit an all time  high.  Basic  commodities  like  onion,  tomato  and  salt  also  hit  centuries.  49%  FDI  was allowed in the aviation sector with Abu Dhabi’s Etihad picking up 24% stake in Jet Airways. Wal-Mart  parted  ways  with  Sunil  Mittal’s  Bharti  Enterprises  and  ended  their  6-year  long partnership.  Indian  government  allowed  51%  FDI  in  multi-brand  retail.  Some  of  the  key legislations got enacted: Food Security Bill, Land Acquisition Bill, Pension Fund Regulation and Companies Act 2013. E-commerce stole the limelight with news like merger of Flipkart and Myntra and Amazon entering the e-commerce market. The e-commerce firms’ valuation hit  the  roof  with  PE  firms  pouring  in  more  and  more  funds.  On  the  other  side,  one  of  the biggest  Ponzi  schemes  by  Saradha  group  in  West  Bengal  got  busted  duping  1.7  million investors;  NSEL  scam  jolted  the  co mmodity  space  and  put  question  marks  on  Forward Market Commission; Sahara Group chief Subrata Roy getting sentenced to jail for illegal fund raising.

All  these  happenings  coupled  with  the  new  government  at  the  Centre  would  have  a  lot  of significance on charting the road ahead. IMNU-Institute of Management, Nirma University has a rich tradition of dedicating a full day in enlightening students on emerging issues in various functional areas. ARTHODAY -  The Finance  Conclave  provides  a  platform  by  inviting  eminent  personalities  to  share  their experiences and insights on the emerging challenges in financial sector.
