There was a time not very long ago when there was no regulating agency like SEBI. Trading was done then also but then it was a one way route. Every company that issues shares to the public is required to have its shares listed on a recognized stock exchange. However, with the changing economic scenario and with the opening up of the Indian economy, the country witnessed huge influx of foreign capital. This resulted in growth in the number of listing of companies on the stock exchanges. Moreover, in the present scenario, if the market is studied minutely many MNC seeks to get their shares delisted at the expense of those investor who themselves are worried seeing their hard earned money whooping in number game.
