Q.1. Read the following case study carefully and attempt the questions given at the
end.
Shyam Lal kirodia was engaged in the family business of trading in natural silk yarn
in a large town of Eastern Uttar Pradesh. The town had lot of potential for silk yarn
demand as there were plenty of weavers engaged in weaving sarees popularly
known as Banarasi Sarees. At the initial stage, the trading business of kirodias
father was not flourishing. However, after the death of his father, when S. L. Kirodia
assumed the full fledged responsibility of the business, he expanded it many fold
with untiring efforts. With the result, he became number one trader of the city and
earned lot of money. He constructed his own five-storey house in prime business
area of the city with a view that ground and first floor s would be used for business
purpose and the remaining floors will be used for residential purpose.
Trading of silk yarn involves procuring of silk yarn from silk producing centres mostly
at Bangalore and adjoining areas and some part of Jammu and Kashmir. Besides,
silk yarn is imported mostly from China. Silk yarn is distributed directly to weavers
who are mostly illiterate manual workers or to semi-wholesalers. The yarn is
supplied on credit basis ranging from one week to two weeks with the provision that
interest at the rate of 2% per month will be charged if the payment is delayed
beyond the stipulated time. When kirodia make huge profits in his trading business,
he started investing a part of the profit in buying companies shares both from the
primary market and secondary market. Gradually, he along with his family members
became shareholder of about 250 companies.
Kirodia had 3 sons and when they were quite grown up, he decided to step down
from the trading business and entered the field of share broking. In late 1994, he
approached a share broker of NSE for the purpose with his friend and was successful
in getting sub-brokership from the main broker located at Mumbai. He formed a
firm known as S. K. Financial Services. Since this was the only firm of this type in the
city, it attracted lot of business at the initial stage. Over the period of time, the firm

was converted into a limited company under the name of kirodia Capital Services
Limited with shareholders drawn mostly from his family and friends.
NSE offered computerized trading system from the very beginning. In this system a
share broker or sub broker has to install VSAT (very small aperture terminal) a
special purpose dish antenna, and computers and accessories besides office
furniture etc. The process of operating a sub-brokers office is as follows:1. Orders for buying/selling shares are obtained from the customers either through
personal contacts or through telephones. A customer may give order either at the
market rate, that is, at the prevailing rate at which he can buy/sell immediately, or a
prescribed rate and the transaction will be effected when this rate comes. In both
these cases, the transaction has to be confirmed by the sub-broker.
2. After the end of the settlement period which is for a week, the sub-broker
prepares a list of transactions which have been executed. He collects money for the
purchases from his customers immediately but gives shares after about three weeks
because he has to deposit the money in advance to his broker who sends the shares
later after the settlement of shares takes place at NSE. Similarly, the sub broker
receives shares from his customers and sends these to his broker from where
money comes after certain interval, usually 3 weeks.
3. The sub-broker has to maintain records relating to various transactions,
customers accounts, main brokers accounts and other relevant records.
At the initial stage, share broking business did quite well, but later it started
dwindling. Many customers flew away to other brokers as many new brokers
entered the business subsequently. The turnover rate of employees at kirodias
office was quite high, on an average no computer operator worked for more than a
yea . Some of the reasons which old customers of kirodia cited were as follows:1. kirodia did not believe anyone in the matter of customer relationship
2. He used to interfere unnecessarily in the customers transactions by telling
why selling at low rate or buying at high rate. This interference used to
upset their mental set.
3. If a customer had negative impact from his transactions, kirodia would
reprimand him like anything saying that he advised not to do this or that. This
became quite embarrassing to a customer and hurt his feelings.
4. He spoke too loudly on telephone which interfered unnecessarily with the
concentration of the customers who used to be present in the sub brokers
office.
5. His overall behaviour was not that of helping and cooperating. Many
customers just wondered how he made so much money in his business and
flopped in share broking business.
