A Guide for Foreign
and Domestic Investors
This is the first book to present a comprehensive
overview of the operations, regulations and important developments in the Indian
capital markets which both foreign and domestic investors will find immensely
useful — as will the various market players and participants.
The Indian securities market is an emerging market
with enormous growth potential, and a key to the country’s future economic
prosperity. However, since its practices and regulations have not been
documented in an investor-friendly manner, it is often perceived as puzzling and
difficult to understand. This book sets right the lacuna.
The author provides a meticulous analysis and
description of the Indian capital market based on his experience as an
investment banker in both developed and developing countries. The topics
Regulatory and legal framework of the Indian
securities market; roles of market regulatory bodies
Indian stock exchanges: organization,
membership, trading mechanism and stock indices
Trading rules and practices for stocks and debt
Custody, settlement and clearing issues —
procedures and problems
Investing in new issues — disclosure and
accounting practices of Indian companies
Characteristics of the Indian debt market, types
of debt instruments, rating agencies
Market participants and how they operate
Emerging developments such as electronic
trading, dematerialization of stocks, depositories, stock lending and share
Highlights for foreign investors:
Foreign investors eligible to invest in India;
investment routes and options
Portfolio investment by foreign investors:
rules, regulations and procedures
Taxation rates and bilateral tax treaties.
differences in norms and practices between India, US and UK — for instance GAAP
and disclosure requirements.
