From the Paper:

"Market Efficiency could be defined as a concept of Efficient Markets Hypothesis. EMH follows that stock prices reflect information. The basic concept is that if markets are efficient then information of abnormal nature could be reflected simultaneously into the market. As a result of this effect, prices are also effected. On the other hand if markets are inefficient newly generated information will have a slower effect into the market thereby change in prices is also slow."
