How to invest in Share Markets in India

There are two main Stock Markets in India – National Stock Exchange (NSE) in New Delhi and Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) in Mumbai.

You can either invest online if your share broker has the online facility or by instruction through phone, fax or sms as per your share broker’s facility. In either case, you don’t have to physically present there. You can do it at the comfort of your home or office.

In India, the documentation is very lengthy. You have to sign pages of application forms and agreements which often comes as a booklet. You have to open a Demat Account (where shares are kept), a bank account (where your money is kept) and a brokerage account (to transact) all linked each other for seamless integration. Your share broker will take care of opening all these accounts for you. You just decide which brokerage firm you would like to deal!

Step by step procedure

  1. Take PAN (Personal Account Number) with Income Tax Department
  1. Open an account with an Indian share brokerage firm
