It has a fully-integrated business model comprising exchange listings, trading services, clearing and settlement services, indices, market data feeds, technology solutions and financial education offerings.

Scale of operations

The scale and breadth of NSE's and the BSE’s products and services, its sustained leadership positions across multiple asset classes in India it's leadership positions in trading volumes help to attract additional participants to the exchange, which in turn results in more efficient price discovery. Their trading technology and risk management framework offers faster and automated execution of orders, which contributes to reduced impact costs for large trade orders.


The trading system provides high level of trade and post-trade information.
