It means apart from advertisement the industry undertakes other tasks which are taking effort to increase awareness. newlineSo, the problem remains as to how the Mutual Funds advertisements are effective in creating awareness and helps in selecting a right kind of scheme for investment. So, this research aims at finding a role of Mutual Fund advertising in spreading awareness amongs
