CFO & CCO(NERL)

I joined NCDEX in November 2006 as a Manager in a Regulatory Compliance Department after working for PwC for over 8 years in Assurance and Business Advisory Services. The role here demanded a deep understanding of commodity derivative market, interaction with the Regulator, setting up of Compliance culture within the Exchange. In 2009 I was promoted to Assistant Vice President as an Incharge of in Regulatory Compliance team. In 2010 got additional responsibility of working for Member Inspection Department. In 2013 I was promoted to Vice President and was designated as Head of Regulatory Compliance and Member Inspection. Based on my experience in a Regulatory department as well as professional qualification, the Exchange thought it fit to give me one more golden opportunity to shoulder responsibility of a Chief Financial Officer and Chief Compliance Officer of newly set up Repository platform called National E-Repository Limited in 2017. The journey so far has given a great experience due to open work culture, great leadership, talented colleagues and cohesive team. With nearly 13 years of experience with NCDEX group I still feel there is a lot of learning potential here and I need to work hard to be able to meet the expectations set by my organization.

NCDEX has a unique work culture that is soaked in enriching its human resource with knowledge and experience that transcends the boundaries defined by one’s department. I joined NCDEX in 2017 to lead the institutional desk for the Exchange. I was offered a canvass which gave me an opportunity to interact with the top notches in the industry, I received the support of all the seniors across group companies under a synergized entity-level approach and it was only enriched by the experience. I have got the opportunity of working under various projects across departments and also interacting with varied set external stakeholders. While learning is in the DNA at NCDEX, this is also the place where talent and good work are recognized. As an organization, we thrive on the eternal process of learning and meaningful execution. I am proud to be a part of the NCDEX family.

Bhavna Kariwala
Assistant Vice President (Inspection & Enforcement)

I started my corporate journey with NCDEX 9 years back as a Management Trainee, and I am extremely glad and fortunate to be a part of this organization. The Exchange has given me multiple opportunities and challenges which have been my growth enablers.

The USP of NCDEX is its work culture. Seniors at all levels are highly approachable and are ready to guide and support the subordinates. If an individual has the capability and the right attitude, NCDEX ensures to provide a platform to acknowledge and appreciate the same. NCDEX promotes work-life balance, which further drives the commitment of the employees towards the organization.

Here, learning never stops. Each day brings in new challenges and a different perspective of working. I am still growing – be it formulating policies at the Exchange level, interacting with SEBI to provide inputs towards improvising the Regulatory regime, or getting hands-on experience towards the latest technological nuances for effective processing of the activities.

All in all, I have realized that the clear mantra of NCDEX lies behind the famous motivational quote.
You don’t build a business, You build people, then people build the business

NCDEX is a one of a kind organization which is involved in pathbreaking work in agricultural markets which are the heart of the Indian economy. Every employee at the Exchange knows that his efforts are towards making a telling contribution to the modernization of agricultural markets and betterment of all those involved in this trade. Personally I feel that in the 15 years that I've been with the Exchange I've learnt immensely and contributed meaningfully towards this cause, facilitated of course by the culture of knowledge sharing and innovation.
