New Delhi, Sep 27 (UNI) With an aim to increase confidence among small investors, Government today said it will set up 'Indian Institute of Corporate Affairs' (IICA) as a think tank and capacity building institute.

These reforms come on the backdrop of the Sensex closing at about the 17,000 mark and Nifty above 5,000.

However, a large portion of retail investors continue to stay outside the market due to lack of information and informed choice.
