Bombay Stock Exchange

The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) (Hindi : मुंबई शेअर बाजार Bombay Śhare Bāzaār)
(formerly, The Stock Exchange, Bombay) is the oldest stock exchange in Asia and largest
number of listed companies in the world, with 4990 listed as of August 2010.[2][3] It is
located at Dalal Street, Mumbai, India. On Aug, 2010, the equity market capitalization of
the companies listed on the BSE was US$1.39 trillion, making it the 4th largest stock
exchange in Asia and the 11th largest in the world.[4]

With over 4,990 Indian companies listed & over 7700 scrips on the stock exchange,[5] it
has a significant trading volume. The BSE SENSEX (SENSitive indEX), also called the
"BSE 30", is a widely used market index in India and Asia. Though many other
exchanges exist, BSE and the National Stock Exchange of India account for most of the
trading in shares in India.

The Bombay Stock Exchange is the oldest exchange in Asia. It traces its history to the
1850s, when 4 Gujarati and 1 Parsi stockbroker would gather under banyan trees in front
of Mumbai's Town Hall. The location of these meetings changed many times, as the
number of brokers constantly increased. The group eventually moved to Dalal Street in
1874 and in 1875 became an official organization known as 'The Native Share & Stock
Brokers Association'. In 1956, the BSE became the first stock exchange to be recognized
by the Indian Government under the Securities Contracts Regulation Act. The Bombay
Stock Exchange developed the BSE Sensex in 1986, giving the BSE a means to measure
overall performance of the exchange. In 2000 the BSE used this index to open its
derivatives market, trading Sensex futures contracts. The development of Sensex options
along with equity derivatives followed in 2001 and 2002, expanding the BSE's trading
platform. Historically an open outcry floor trading exchange, the Bombay Stock
Exchange switched to an electronic trading system in 1995. It took the exchange only
fifty days to make this transition. This automated, screen-based trading platform called
BSE On-line trading (BOLT) currently has a capacity of 80 lakh orders per day. The BSE
has also introduced the world's first centralized exchange-based internet trading system, to enable investors anywhere in the world to trade on the BSE platform.
. The BSE is currently housed in Phiroze Jeejeebhoy Towers at Dalal Street, Fort area.

19 October 2010 BSE today introduced the 15-minute special pre-open trading session, a
mechanism under which investors can bid for stocks before the market opens. The
mechanism, known as 'pre-open session call auction', lasted for 15 minutes (from 9:00-
9:15 am). [9]

• The Annual Reports and Accounts of BSE for the year ended March 31, 2006 and
March 31 2007 have been awarded the ICAI awards for excellence in financial
• The Human Resource Management at BSE has won the Asia - Pacific HRM
awards for its efforts in employer branding.
• The World Council of Corporate Governance has awarded the Golden Peacock
Global CSR Award for BSE's contributions in Corporate Social Responsibility

terminals, 2799 in total, cover more than 1500 cities across India.[6] In October 2007, the
equity market capitalization of the companies listed on the NSE was US$ 1.46 trillion,
making it the second largest stock exchange in South Asia. NSE is the third largest Stock
Exchange in the world in terms of the number of trades in equities.[7] It is the second
fastest growing stock exchange in the world with a recorded growth of 16.6%.[8]

the behest of the Government of India, and was incorporated in November 1992 as a tax-
paying company. In April 1993, it was recognized as a stock exchange under the
Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act, 1956. NSE commenced operations in the

Services Sector in India:

Service Sector in India today accounts for more than half of India's GDP. According to data for the financial
year 2006-2007, the share of services, industry, and agriculture in India's GDP is 55.1 per cent, 26.4 per
cent, and 18.5 per cent respectively. The fact that the service sector now accounts for more than half the
GDP marks a watershed in the evolution of the Indian economy and takes it closer to the fundamentals of a
developed economy.
There was marked acceleration in services sector growth in the eighties and nineties, especially in the
nineties. While the share of services in India's GDP increased by 21 per cent points in the 50 years between
1950 and 2000, nearly 40 per cent of that increase was concentrated in the nineties. While almost all service
sectors participated in this boom, growth was fastest in communications, banking, hotels and restaurants,
community services, trade and business services. One of the reasons for the sudden growth in the services
sector in India in the nineties was the liberalisation in the regulatory framework that gave rise to innovation
and higher exports from the services sector.

The boom in the services sector has been relatively "jobless". The rise in services share in GDP has not
accompanied by proportionate increase in the sector's share of national employment. Some economists
have also cautioned that service sector growth must be supported by proportionate growth of the industrial
sector, otherwise the service sector grown will not be sustainable. In the current economic scenario it looks
that the boom in the services sector is here to stay as India is fast emerging as global services hub.
