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 described include:

  • 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 instruments

  • 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 buy-back.

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.

Significant differences in norms and practices between India, US and UK — for instance GAAP and disclosure requirements.
