The ninth edition of this highly successful reference-cum-textbook on Financial Services has been developed after thoroughly revising the content of the previous edition. It continues to focus on presenting the current and updated status of the financial services sector in India. Text in this edition has been exhaustively revised to include all the significant updates (notable policy and operational developments since the publication of its previous edition in 2015) till end-March 2017. The book prominently deals with analytical framework, both from the point of view of the non-banking financial intermediaries/companies (which provide the services) as well as their users. It also discusses comprehensively the legal, procedural, tax, accounting and regulatory aspects , offering a judicious mixture of theory and business practices of the contemporary Indian financial services sector.
