I just discovered this link on SEBI’s website – Material on the History of Indian Securities Market.
It has some interesting pdfs documenting some history of Indian securities markets. So you have:
- historic reports on BSE,
- regulating stock exchnages,
- lok sabha debates on securities contract act,
- minutes of some key stock exchanges etc
It will be interesting if all this could culminate into some useful research papers/project which help us understand history of India’s securities market. Along with RBI’s history, this history will help plug the gaps in overall history of Indian financial markets.
Some students could take this project actually in their internship/coursework. Pass it on to those interested.
