The emergence of stock market can be traced back to 1830. In Bombay, business passed in the shares of banks like the commercial bank, the chartered mercantile bank, the chartered bank, the oriental bank and the old bank of Bombay and shares of cotton presses. In Calcutta, Englishman reported the quotations of 4%, 5%, and 6% loans of East India Company as well as the shares of the bank of Bengal in 1836. This list was a further broadened in 1839 when the Calcutta newspaper printed the quotations of banks like union bank and Agra bank. It also quoted the prices of business ventures like the Bengal bonded warehouse, the Docking Company and the storm tug company. Between 1840 and 1850, only half a dozen brokers existed for the limited business. But during the share mania of 1860-65, the number of brokers increased considerably. By 1860, the number of brokers was about 60 and during the exciting period of the American Civil war, their number increased to about 200 to 250. The end of American Civil war brought disillusionment and many failures and the brokers decreased in number and prosperity. It was in those troublesome times between 1868 and 1875 that brokers organized an informal association and finally as recited in the Indenture constituting the Articles of Association of the Exchange. On or about 9th day of July,1875, a few native brokers doing brokerage business in shares and stocks resolved upon forming in Bombay an association for protecting the character, status and interest of native share and stock brokers and providing a hall or building for the use of the members of such association. As a meeting held in the broker Hall on the 5th day of February, 1887, it was resolved to execute a formal deal of association and to constitute the first managing and to appoint the first trustees. Accordingly, the Articles of Association of the Exchange and the Stock Exchange was formally established in Bombay on 3rd day of December, 1887. The Association is now known as The Stock Exchange. The entrance fee for new member was Re.1 and there were 318 members on the list, when the exchange was constituted. The number of members increased to 333 in 1896, 362 in

1916and 478 in 1920 and the entrance fee was raised to Rs.5 in 1877, Rs.1000 in 1896, Rs.2500 in 1916 and Rs. 48,000 in 1920. At present there are 23 recognized stock exchanges with about 6000 stock brokers. Organization structure of stock exchange varies.14 stock exchanges are organized as public limited companies, 6 as companies limited by guarantee and 3 are non-profit voluntary organization. Of the total of 23, only 9 stock exchanges have been permanent recognition. Others have to seek recognition on annual basis. These exchange do not work of its own, rather, these are run by some persons and with the help of some persons and institution. All these are down as functionaries on stock exchange. These are 1. Stockbrokers 2. Sub-broker 3. Market makers 4. Portfolio consultants etc.

1.) Stockbrokers Stock brokers are the members of stock exchanges. These are the persons who buy, sell or deal in securities. A certificate of registration from SEBI is mandatory to act as a broker. SEBI can impose certain conditions while granting the certificate of registrations. It is obligatory for the person to abide by the rules, regulations and the buy-law. Stock brokers are commission broker, floor broker, arbitrageur etc. Detail of registered brokers 2.) Sub-broker A sub-broker acts as agent of stock broker. He is not a member of a stock exchange. He assists the investors in buying, selling or dealing in securities through stockbroker. The broker and sub-broker should enter into an agreement in which obligations of both should be specified. Sub-broker must be registered SEBI for a dealing in securities. For getting registered with SEBI, he must fulfill certain rules and regulation.

3.) Market Makers Market maker is a designated specialist in the specified securities. They make both bid and offer at the same time. A market maker has to abide by bye-laws, rules regulations of the concerned stock exchange. He is exempt from the margin requirements. As per the listing requirements, a company where the paid-up capital is Rs. 3 crore but not more than Rs. 5 crore and having a commercial operation for less than 2 years should appoint a market maker at the time of issue of securities.

4.) Portfolio consultants A combination of securities such as stocks, bonds and money market instruments is collectively called as portfolio. Whereas the portfolio consultants are the persons, firms or companies who advise, direct or undertake the management or administration of securities or funds on behalf of their clients.



The equity market is one of the most important sources of companies to raise money. This allows business to be publicly traded, or raise additional capital for expansion by selling shares of ownership of the company in a public market. The liquidity that an exchange provides afford investors the ability to quickly and easily sell securities. This is an attractive feature of investing in stocks, compared to other less liquid investments such as real estate, mutual funds, investing in insurance scheme etc. History has shown that the price of shares and other assets is an important part of the dynamics of economic activity, and can influence or be an indicator of social mood. An economy where the stock market is on the rise is considered to be an up and coming economy. In fact the stock market is often considered the primary indicator of a countrys economic strength and development. Rising share prices, for instance, tend to be associated with increased business investment and vice versa. Share prices also affects the wealth of households and their consumption. Therefore central bank tend to keep an eye on the control and behavior of the stock market and, in general, on the smooth operation of financial system functions. Exchanges also acts as the clearinghouse for each transaction, meaning that they collect and deliver the shares, and guarantee payment to the seller of a security. This eliminates the risk to an individual buyer or seller that the counterparty could default on the transaction. The smooth functioning of all these activities facilitates economic growth in that lower costs and enterprise risks promote the production of goods and services as well as employment. In this way the financial system contributes to increased prosperity.

Comments: The major difference lies in the services provided by the brokerage firm. The product delivered is same but services provided by one firm distinguish it from other company. Here, Indiabulls is having the advantage because it is providing Financial Statements, Advisory Services, Margin Funding and Portfolio Management Services. But some of the brokerage firms are lacking behind in some of the services like HDFC is not providing any advisory services and margin funding. Competent Firms is not Margin Funding and Portfolio management services.



Comments: According to the survey 45% people are satisfied with Indiabulls because of their Relationship Managers (RMs) facility and Power Indiabulls (PIB) software.

Lack of promotional activities undertaken by INDIABULLS in Kurukshetra Region. Main purposes of investments are returns & liquidity. Investors take risk as well as returns into their mind while making the investment. Businessmen are more interested in the stock market than the others. People want to invest their money in the security market but they havent the proper knowledge. People are not aware of hedging in stock market. People pay more emphasis on brokerage than service provided by brokerage houses. Commodity market is less preferred by investors.

Commitment should be equalized for every person. Provide the facility of free demonstrations for all.


Improvement in the opening of De-mat & contract notice procedure is required. There should be a limited number of clients under the relationship manger. So that he can handle new as well as old customer properly. Some promotional activities are required for the awareness of the customer. People at young age should be encouraged to invest in stock market. Seminars should be held for providing information to prospective and present customers. There are few untapped regions where people want to invest but they dont know the procedure for investment in equity or commodity etc. market. Some advertisement should be done for this purpose.

As only Kurukshetra dealt in survey so it does not represent the view of the total Indian market.


Size of the research may not be substantial. There was lack of time on the part of respondents. The survey was carried through questionnaire and the questions were based on perception. There may be biasness in information by market participant. Complete data was not available due to company privacy and secrecy.

On the basis of the study it is found that INDIABULLS SECURITIES Ltd is better services provider than the other stockbrokers because of their timely research

and personalized advice on what stocks to buy and sell. INDIABULLS Ltd. provide the facility of ON LINE Trade as well as relationship manager facility for encouragement and protect the interest of the investors. It also provides the information through the internet that what IPOs are coming in the market and it also provides its research on the future prospect of the IPO. Study also concludes that people are not much aware of commodity market and while its going to be biggest market in India. The company should also organize seminars and similar activities to enhance the knowledge of prospective and existing customers, so that they feel more comfortable while investing in the stock market.
