Solution

Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) was established for promoting an orderly and healthy growth of the securities market in India. The following points highlight the overall objectives of SEBI.

1. Regulation :- The basic objective of SEBI is to regulate the functioning of stock exchange and the securities market. It aims at providing a place where the issuers of securities (i.e. companies) can raise funds in an easy and confident manner. 

2. Protection :- SEBI works on educating the investors and provide guidelines related to investment. It provides them adequate and reliable information about the companies and thereby, helps them in taking wise and informed investment decisions.

3. Prevention :- To combat the malpractice in trading of securities was the basic reason for the establishment of SEBI. Malpractice such as insider trading, violation of rules and regulations, non-adherence to Companies Act, etc. erodes the confidence of investors. SEBI aims at checking these malpractice by creating a balance between the self regulation of a business and the legal statutory regulations.

4. Code of Conduct :- Through regulation, SEBI develops a code of conduct for the fair trade practices by the intermediaries such as brokers, merchant bankers, underwriters, etc. SEBI controls the activities of these intermediaries and provides them a professional and competitive environment.
