The plays were keenly watched by thousands of passers-by from all walks of life who appreciated this unique initiative of IIFL Finance in educating the common man. Furthermore, officials from IIFL Finance were present to guide the audience on how to achieve financial independence.
Speaking about the initiative, Mr. Ashok Mittal, IIFL Foundation said, “IIFL Finance is a responsible organization pursuing ESG, i.e., Environmental, Social and Governance, goals among its prime objectives.
