Judging Criteria:
Players are expected to climb their way to the top of the leaderboard by making intelligent investments. Players are ranked based on their net worth which is the sum of the liquid cash they own and the net worth of their stocks.

1) What is trade? How can I trade?
Trade is done at the stock exchange. You buy company stock from the stocks in exchange. You enter the amount of stock you want to buy from the company and click on ‘Trade’ to complete a successful trade.
2) How can I buy stocks from other players?
You can buy stocks by giving a ‘Bid’ order for the particular stock. You will receive the stock only if your bid is successful. You are permitted to negotiate for the same stock by sending another bid.
3) How can I sell stocks to other players?
You can sell stocks by giving an ‘Ask’ order for the particular stock. Only when your ‘Ask’ is successful will you receive the money. However, you can negotiate for the same stock by sending another ‘Ask’ order.
4) What are the types of orders supported by Dalal Street’s exchange?
We support ‘Limit’, ‘Market’ and ‘Stop Loss’ orders. If you’re not sure what these terms mean, worry not. We have provided resources for you to familiarise yourself with these terms.
5) Who can participate in Dalal Street?
Anyone with a valid Pragyan ID can participate. If you don’t have a Pragyan ID, please register on the Pragyan website.
6) What is the role of bots? Who makes the bots?
The bots are present to provide realistic market fluctuations. They behave like human players - they buy, sell, and mortgage stocks following their own strategies. A large number of these, each different from the other, will give the market a randomness factor. The bots will not have any advantage over human players - they will take their own sweet time to trade stocks. After all, the prize money is only for human players. Also, the bots are designed by us and not the participants.
7) Whom should I approach in case of technical problems or queries?
You can always call our managers directly in case of any emergency. Every player will be notified in case of technical difficulties within the Dalal Dashboard under the notification or alert tab. Further instructions will be put up on our main site.

Beer Factory is an online strategy-based game designed to test the skills of the participants in the art of resource management. There are two different game modes available for the participants: Single Player mode and Duel mode. Players are expected to oversee the production and management processes of beer and wine in their factory and their goal is to maximise profit by boosting popularity and overcoming various hurdles across different seasons. In Single Player mode, participants compete against a computer-simulated opponent.

Event Details:
  • Start Date: 14th March 2022
  • Mode - Online
  • Each participant starts the game with a predetermined amount of cash and beers.
  • The participant earns a profit for each beer sold during the turn.
  • Each unsold beer contributes to a negative inventory cost.
  • A new product is unlocked after a certain number of turns. This is calculated by an algorithm, and the product has separate popularity and quality.
  • In the Duel mode, both the players in a match will get the same resources and number of turns. The player with the highest score at the end, wins the duel.
  • The game is divided into 6 seasons. Each player gets to face different challenges in each season. The player is also provided with mid-season incentives provided he satisfies the targets given at the start of each season.
  • In the Duel mode, both the players in a match will get the same resources and number of turns. The player with the highest score, in the end, wins the duel.
It is a turn-based game. The various activities involved during a turn are:
  • Recording of simulated retailers’ demands.
  • Decision-making regarding supply to retailers based on various factors like popularity and current demand.
  • Order placement for the next round.
  • Factory enhancement decisions like increasing the capacity, improving the transportation system, and so on.
There will be an opponent factory playing with the same set of retailers. Your actions will affect the popularity of your opponent and vice versa. There will be a total of around 240 turns. New retailers will be unlocked over time as the game progresses. The winner is decided based on the final score, which is an aggregate of popularity among retailers and the factory's profits.
Judging Criteria:
The winner is decided solely based on his/her factory’s “popularity rating” and the “profit rating”. Further information on how this is calculated shall be provided later. Duels will have a leaderboard separate from the Single Player mode. The decision of the event organisers is final. Requests to make changes in the results shall not be entertained. Any malpractices will lead to disqualification from the leaderboard.

1) Should I stay online throughout the entire duration?
Yes, you are expected to stay online but you can pause the game and continue whenever you want to.
2) What happens if there are unexpected situations like power failure?
We accommodate such events if they occur. You can contact the event managers for more details.
3) Does the game require any prerequisites?
No. Management skills and strategic thinking are sufficient to play the game.

On Robots
  • Attack on Robots is a multiplayer resource management game based on strategic city planning. Participants attempt to design safe and secure cities with the available resources and attempt to find weaknesses in other cities.
  • Each player designs robot cities with the given resources.
  • Players can choose to attack opponent cities with the given resources and deactivate as many robots as possible.

Event Details:
  • Dates: 8th March - 14th March 2022
  • Mode - Online
  • Each player has to design a new base at every level before the attack phase starts during that level.
  • Each player can choose to attack unique bases during the attack phase of a level.
  • All players play at the same level; when a level is increased, resources are updated.
  • Based on the overall rating, the top players in the leaderboard are selected as winners.
  • Attack on Robots is a level-based game, and each level takes place during a specific period.
  • Each level has 2 phases: Defense and Attack Phase
  • Defense Phase: Various activities involved during this phase are:
    • Designing a robot city for the player using the various resources provided to the user and connecting them using roads.
  • Attack Phase: Various activities involved during this phase are:
    • Choosing an opponent city to plan your attack on their city.
    • Planning an attacker robot's path from the entrance of the selected opponent city.
    • Placing EMP attacks on the route and setting their execution time to deactivate the maximum number of robots.
  • A simulation will show and calculate how the attack took place and assign the respective ratings of the players involved.
  • Further information regarding the number of levels, number of attacks allowed per level, period of level, and phase, will be informed later.

  • For an attack on a city, the following ratings are calculated:
    • Defense rating, given to the defending city player, depends directly on the survival percentage of robots and on the number of EMPs used.
    • Attack rating, given to the attacker, depends directly on the percentage of robots deactivated and inversely on the number of EMPs used.
  • The overall rating of a player is a factor of all the player's attack ratings and defense ratings.
Judging Criteria:
The winners are solely selected based on their overall rating. In case of any malpractice or unfair play, the organisers can ban the player and remove their performance from the leaderboard. The decision of the event organisers is final. No requests for changes shall be entertained.

1) What is the ultimate goal of the game?
To construct and design protective and efficient cities and also be able to find possible weaknesses in other cities and plan effective attacks.
2) When does the player need to be online?
The player needs to be online when the attack and defence phase is open, which will be announced on the site.
3) Are there any prerequisites required?
None, just the understanding of the event rules and description, should be sufficient.

Problem Statement:
We all know that life of each organism is important. We can help them survive in many ways; one among them is removing our waste from their survival environment. Removing waste above water level and in lower levels of water is more accessible, but waste removal is hard in deep seas and oceans. Though there are several approaches for it in our daily life, we can find very few feasible solutions. But when it comes to efficiency, the efficiency is too low due to the high pressure and lack of light deep under the ocean. Develop the mechanism of the robot that can remove all the wastes from deep seas and oceans.

Abstract Round:
1) In the abstract, explain the idea and mechanism in detail with suitable resources.
2) You can choose any material for the robot's parts. State the reason for selecting a specific material.

Judging Criteria:
  • Feasibility of the idea
