Today, three centuries later, we see a tall, iconic building at Dalal Street housing one of India's best known landmarks - BSE. The story of BSE is the story of the Indian economy.
The benchmark index, S&P BSE Sensex, was first compiled on January 2, 1986 comprising the top 30 stocks in the country. The S&P BSE Sensex is often referred to as the barometer of Indian economy and is rightly called "India's Index the World Tracks."
Situated in the financial capital of the country, BSE has kept pace with the latest in technology. The association with Deutsche Boerse has helped BSE to put in place technology that provides a competitive edge to the Exchange in terms of its order-handling capacity, speed as well as throughput.
As India's leading stock exchange, BSE is an iconic institution and symbolic of India's economic prowess and resilience as it continues to be a port-of-call for several high-level dignitaries, both national as well as international, from a multitude of fields.
With a new tagline, "Experience the new," BSE is well poised to explore newer frontiers of the financial markets in terms of technology, products and distribution.
