How to register with SEBI as a Research Analyst?

Hi… If I want to sell technical picks in a whatsapp or telegram group and also sell my fundamental research to people through my website, do K need to be RA or IA?

You will need to register as an RA.

In simple language, personalized advice can only be given by RIA.
Analysis and views on a company/stock can be given by RA. Note: this view should/will be same for all customers.

Thanks ! I will check with SEBI.

Hi, Thanks for this thread. I can see that Ignou has started one year diploma instead of 2 years MBA. Is that valid?
Also Are PG courses from ICFAI(Institute of Chartered Financial Analysts of India) valid for applying into SEBI?

Here is what SEBI regulations say:
**A professional qualification or post-graduate degree or post graduate diploma in
finance, accountancy, business management, commerce, economics, capital
market, financial services or markets provided by:
(a) a university which is recognized by University Grants Commission or by
any other commission/council/board/body established under an Act of
Parliament in India for the purpose; or
(b) an institute/association affiliated with such university; or
(c) an institute/ association/university established by the central government
or state government; or
(d) autonomous institute falling under administrative control of Government of
India; or
(ii) professional qualification or post-graduate degree or post graduate diploma
which is accredited by All Indian Council for Technical Education, National
Assessment and Accreditation Council or National Board of Accreditation or any
other council/board/body set up under an Act of Parliament in India for the
purpose; **

Based on this, One year Diploma after Graduation is fine, in fact, I did a PG diploma from Ignou. Do ensure that the university if recognized by Government.

I am not aware of ICFA, but as long as it is an institute which fits the SEBI rule, it should be good.

Hello Ashish, I am getting all mixed up with the “or” in the qualification segment. I am just about to finish my B.com and then thinking of joining PG Diploma from IGNOU as said. Would it suffice or i do need to have a PG Degree with it?

Please clarify. And it would be of great help if you could share the link to the PG Diploma course from IGNOU as i am getting confused with it too.

I think that the the PG Diploma I did has been discontinued by IGNOU (IGNOU - School of Management Studies (SOMS) - Programmes - Distance - Post Graduate Diploma in Financial Markets Practice (PGDFMP)). Do check.

Sebi in its regulations says:
“A professional qualification or post-graduate degree or post graduate diploma in
finance, accountancy, business management, commerce, economics, capital
market, financial services or markets”

So choose a course which fits this criteria.

Hello Pranit. Did you receive a reply from SEBI?

Apologies for the late reply.

As far as I know the process remains the same, the eligibility criteria is a bit different.
