Indian Stock Markets have come a long way since the days when trading used to happen under a banyan tree. In 1957 Bombay Stock Exchange became the first stock exchange to be recognized under Securities Contract Act.
In 1993 National Stock Exchange was established which brought the paradigm shift in the way trading use to happen. In 2000 Internet trading was started at NSE. BSE followed soon later.
With tighter regulation under SEBI and buoyant Indian economy, Indian Stock Markets started attracting foreign investors in a big way. Today Investors from all over the world invest in Indian companies and stocks.
