    You are welcome to the blog πŸ™‚

    Yes, you can appear for the exam (dealer module, capital market). In fact anyone can appear for this after clearing the 12th level board exam. If you have other work experiences, you can employed after clearing those (capital mkt and derivative mkt modules). Also you can do business as well. For that you need to take a franchisee from a stock broking house and you have to do all the marketing staffs on your own. I think that is better . I mean independent one. Please log in to and register your self for the NCFM exam. All are done through online. And you have to submit the fees (1000/-) to the ICICI Bank in cash or in credit card. Once the payment is done, you will get a message in your mail or in the mobile and then you have to choose a date on your own. Af ter that you have to take a print out of the hall ticket and paste a colour photograph on it. This you can also do online. Make sure you must keep sufficient time in your hand as you are new I think. In addition if you are thinking to have a franchisee you can mail me at ( I am currently working in shriraminsight share brokers.

    Feel free to contact me for further queries. I will be glad to assist you.

    dear sir
    I want to become a member of ncfm , what i want to do ?
    my age 22; my qualification preparing for BBA.


  6. Sekhar Saha

    Welcome Vaibhav to my blog.
    NSE, the national stock exchange, conducts NCFM examination. Your question is not yet clear to me. I think you might want to become a member of NSE. If you are thinking to open a broking business then you have to register with NSE. Or, if you simply need a job there, you need to apply online. But first finish your study I mean MBA and then apply for the appropriate openings. Or, if you just want to appear for the NCFM examination, then you are exactly in the right place to resolve your queries. Please go through the above comments and let me know for further assistance.

    You are welcome Divya to my blog πŸ™‚
    Its great to see that you are interested in the stock market. Keep it up.
    I must let you know that, a hell lot money does not require to enter in the stock market. You can start investing with a very small amount of money say 5000/- or less. You are eager to get a job to stock market or in broking and that will help to enrich your knowledge base. Try to clear the NCFM Capital and Derivative module to get a break as you already have work experience . For that you can read the above comments.

    Feel free to ask.

    where can i get NCFM (dealer ) module question & answer papers

  23. Pl. let me know what kind of Question asked during Interview Can u Provide me some of them, is it compulsory to have knowledge of Ms Excel? Also I want to know About Neat & Bolt Operation.

    It is written that approved users on F&O segment have to pass a certification program which has been approved by SEBI. Each approved user is Given A Unique ID No.
    As I have already passed when this Unique ID No. will provided to me?


  24. Sekhar Saha

    You are correct Sumit so far as the SEBI regulations are concerned. You could only get the ID once you have a job in the stock market. But that ID will be used by your company. So I doubt whether you will be able to know that one or not.
    Yes, basic computer knowledge is required as you have to operate the trading terminal. Question regarding the current stock market and economic conditions will be asked I think. Try to read business newspaper. That will certainly increase your knowledge base.
    Regarding Neat operation, company will train you on that. Otherwise you can do a crash course from local stock market related institute.

    i’m planning to appear for Capital Markets-Beginners module..plz clarify my doubt….

    1. On NSE site, one document in section named ICICI cash payment centres provides a list of places where candidate can make payment for test…so, my doubt is dat can i make cash payment @ICICI bank branch located in any place or i can do dat only in branch situated in specified region??

    2. Is dere any need to send registeration form by post also even if i’ve registered online ?

    3. Do they send study material different from the one uploaded on the website?

    thnx….. πŸ™‚

  51. Sekhar Saha

    Good to see you there Jaspreet.

    1. You can deposit the cash amount near to your house, if cash payment mode is available there in ICICI BANK. Or do one thing, make the payment through the debit card (Banks are being mentioned over there).
    2. No need at all to send the reg. form. I think you have already done that online.
    3. No. The materials will be same and you will get the same within 7 to 10 days of the payment.

    Best Luck.

  69. Sekhar Saha

    Well, it is quite difficult to say when you will get a job in equity research. You can apply your candidature to equity broking research. Most of them however are based in Mumbai. Or you can do one thing also. You can go for the KPO (IT Sector). They need quality people for the outsourcing. Else your starting point could be Operations dept.

    Let me know.

    Firstly, can I get any model papers other than the one on NSE’s website?.

    Secondly, I’m 35 years old. Did my graduation (Bcom) and Mcom(correspondence). Worke for 9 years in a BPO company as Coordinator for Management systems.
    Problem: My certificates were misplaced in the company which I recently left.
    Now will this hamper my opportunities to apply for franchise b’cause applying for duplicates will take a long time. Please advise

  73. Sekhar Saha

    The answer is no for your first question. At least I don’t know.

    You have to wait for the duplicate certificates. As the registration no. is already belongs to NSE. So remove the idea of appearing in exams in NSE (if the certificates dates are still valid).

    You must possess the net banking facility. It works.

  95. Sekhar Saha

    I personally think, there is no need to take tutions. Rather one can discuss the workings of share market with someone who is related to that field. These days lots of educational institutes are providing training on that like ICA. You can contact them.

    Best Luck πŸ™‚
    Sekhar Saha.



  97. Sekhar Saha

    1. Go through the book thoroughly.
    2. Take some help regarding the functioning of the capital market in brief and then start.

    Best luck.

    I am doing my MBA in Finance now and recently i heard about NCFM modules. I want to know which module will help me enter into business analyst and when do i have to attend my exams. I have read the above comments but still confused a bit. Please can u advise on this.

  111. Nilesh

    Hello Shekhar,

    Is there any other solved questions other than those available on nse- india.I’am looking forward for fimmda & commodities exam and need to know if there are any questionaarie available.


  112. Sekhar Saha

    Congrats Vishal πŸ™‚
    Try to get a job as a dealer and then you go for the other modules as some practical knowledge is required for modules you have mentioned. Salary depends on the experience but my guess is that 6k to 8k will be th starting salary as a dealer.


  113. Sekhar Saha

    First clear the MBA first. To become a business analyst, nothing to do with the NCFM modules. Rather if you choose working in a stock broking research dept. my thinking is that it is indeed a kind of business analysis as without understanding the business module you cant prepare a good research report on a specific company.


  114. vIsHal

    Mr. Sekhar,

    Wht does the mean of ” A person Score above 80% is certify with certified trainer…??

  115. uma

    Thanks for your reply. But u know i don have any finance background so i thought these modules would be helpful for my job in future.

  119. Sekhar Saha

    Did you get message on your mobile? or did you recieve the duplicate copy of the payment?

    please log in to nse website to check whether there is any message of receving the payment. If no, wait for some time (3 days) and then do a mail to nse. If yes, you can then choose the dates of the modules.

  125. Sekhar Saha

    Not sure maam, whether you people will get a job right there as a dealer or not. Surely your age might pose some problem. But I think as you have the work experience, you can get at least a back office job in the broking houses. Try for that. By the way where did you stay?

    1. Your qualification is enough for BCFM and NCFM.
    2. NCFM cash is for NSE terminals. Appear for that first.
    3. Exams are not so tough. All you need to do, read the book thoroughly along with the questions and answers.

    BCFM is not valid for NSE. And these days NCFM certificate is all required to run the terminals. You have to clear only the NCFM cash and derivative modules to have the brokerage dealership.

    You mail me at: saha(dot)sekhar(at)gmail(dot)com
    with your address and contact no. Our team will contact you.


  149. Sekhar Saha

  159. anil

    if i have pass a compliance officer (both module), what is opportunities in future as a compliance officer in any Company?

  160. Sekhar Saha

    So Anil, you are interested as a Compliance officer in a broking house right! Most of the companies have their Compliance officer probably and they work independently with the association with SEBI. You can start as a assistant of the chief. I think you are right person to be at the compliance department.

    Hi Sekhar,

    I have passed Dealer module for cash, derivative & commodity. Now I want to give Compliance Officer Exams. So can you suggest me Study Material for the same



  173. Sekhar Saha

    * Prashant, you can download the softcopy from nse website.

    * Arun, for Surveillance in Stock Exchanges module, you can try for the risk department of a broking house. But prior to that, you need to have some experience on dealing and client risk operation. By the way, I dont have any idea on Compliance Officer’s Modules. Once I get the same, I will let you know ok!


  174. sandhya

    wanted to know how to clear the NCFM Debt Module?? as this is one of the toughest one among the ncfm tests. can u give us some tips for writting the exam. my exam date is 21st october 2008. plus most of the syllabus is outdated to the current market conditions. This is a major problem as i have working experience of over 10 years in debt market. please suggest some simpler ways to clear the exams. thanx.

  175. Sekhar Saha

    No idea at all Sandhya as I havent appear for that 😦
    But I think you might not have any problem for that particular exam keeping in mind the experience you have πŸ™‚
    My tips would be simple once again:
    1. solve the questions and answers of both the mock tests and of the book.
    2. Avoid guess work in exam as negative marking is there.

    Hi sekher, I want to appear for capital ,derivatives market module .Is there any mock test on these papers . After passing these papers am I eligible for any monthly stipend from NSE. Shall I get any part time job after this exam.
    pls reply, thank u very much . take care.

  186. Sekhar Saha

    Hi Janmejay, how are u?

    No there is no stipend. Its all your cost to appear for the exam. Broking industry has received a big blow in the ongoing financial crisis. To get a job will be really difficult other than marketing.
    Go to the NSE website, you will get the mock test papers there.

    Hello Shekhar
    First of all i would like to appreciate your selfless efforts in answering so many queries. Keep up the good work,friend!

    Now here comes my query(after reading almost all ur replies). I have completed my beginners module successfully with 79% and would like to do a couple of modules more in support. I had almost enrolled myself for Derivatives module and then came across ur blog which says that one should give Capital Markets module before Derivatives Module. It would be grateful if u could throw some light on the same. Secondly I am into my final year engineering with MBA plans. Should I opt for Capital+derivatives or AMFI?? What would u suggest??

    Thanks in advance.

    • Sekhar Saha

      Sorry for being late in giving the answers. It should be the capital and the derivative first as those are required for the opening of the terminals when you join as the research assistant I suppose. The plan for the MBA is great but make sure the institute should be a good one viewing the current job market scenario worldwide. AMFI certificate is required for the mutual fund distribution and thus marketing purpose. BTW, thanks for the complements.

    Thanking you

    • Sekhar Saha

      That means you are likely to take a franchisee on share trading right! All you need to deposit a caution money with the reputed brokerage house. Remember all the marketing stuffs you have to do. The brokerage will be shared as per the terms and conditions depends upon the business you provide. And you must have an office space and the internet connection so that the business could run smoothly. If you need some assistance write me and mention the place and the contact address. Oh BTW you need to have the Capital and the derivative market module certificates from the NSE INDIA ok!

      best luck πŸ™‚

  199. Hello,
    I am working as a engineer, my brother is preparing for NCFM , He wnts to do 7 or 8 modules, He is starting with financial market beginners module,Can you suggest me which modules are best to get a office job.
    Also if there are any institutes in pune ,which gives training on preparing for these exams.

    PLZ reply.

    • Sekhar Saha

      So far the name of any institute I cant tell here from Kolkata. You have to take some initiative to search for the process. Well, so far I can understand your brother is fresher and he needs a job. If he is interested in the capital market, he has start from the scratch I mean from the dealer level. In that case he must have to have two prime certificates that is capital market and the derivative market. Then he can clear the other modules. But in this downturn economic scenario I doubt there will be any little bit of chance for the fresher in the stock broking industry. Tell him to make a good try.
      Best luck and keep in touch πŸ™‚

    • Sekhar Saha

      Nothing to confuse. As those module papers are relevant for the dealers module. Ans as you have MBA I dont think you will have much difficulties in getting office jobs. Are you in the online media industry? If yes then I must suggest you something to stay there as the situation in the BFSI segment is not quite good all over the world.

    Hi Shekar,

    Your valuable suggestions to everyone is worth commendable. I just wanted to know abt
    NSDL-Depository Operations Module. People scoring above 80%, will be certified as β€˜Trainers’. – Wht dos this mean ??

    • Sekhar Saha

      I am trying to assist people. I think, NSE would recommend those names (area wise perhaps) for the brokers to get the manpower training of her DP section.

    • Sekhar Saha

      I think you are looking for some back office or research based jobs! You can try those. But most of the stock broking employers would like to engage you as a marketing person. Or you can try out for dealer. As this involves with stock research and of course marketing.

    • Sekhar Saha

      You can take a franchisee from a Stock broking house. And if you know how to operate the terminal, this will be an added advantage as you don’t have to pay salary. But marketing staffs you have to do. Please read this post.

      By the way, where do you stay? Can I assist you in this regard?

      Sekhar Saha.

      U should have acted after knowing all those in details. And one thing is really scaring that how NSE people allow u to appear for the exams without verifying the age? Though it all requires to have 10+2 passed. Anyway I would suggest u to make them understand that its not your fault.

      Next modules are cash, derivative, currency, dp and risk. But I would suggest you to find job in research or in risk department. Register yourself with Monster and Naukri. Also start connecting people in facebook through your friends you can get the true feedback. Also get register in LinkedIn with all the education mentioned there. You can get lead from there as well.

    • Sekhar Saha

      Career option is related as a dealer. You clear few of the papers and try to learn the arbitrage technique. Once you do the job, there is lot more challenges in that and salary and incentive would be quite high. Also you can try the money market, more smart market than the capital or the derivative one.
