“The purpose of the fest was to disseminate financial awareness at an early age, looking at the demand of the industry. Students need to be financially independent and be able to make sound decisions. This would make them confident and aware about their finances as they grow up,” Nisha Peshin, Director Academics and Public Schools-II DAVCMC said.
The fest provided the students and their parents with insights into effective financial management from representatives from 13 banks and 22 financial experts. It empowered them with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate the complexities of personal finances.
Varun Malhotra, founder and director of a financial literacy institute and one of the speakers spoke to TOI about the need to inculcate financial literacy from childhood. “Most people don’t know how to manage money only because they were never taught about it,” he said.
