  • @Ishu Hi, I though there were just 2 stock exchanges in India i.e. NSE and BSE. Actually these stock exchanges are the ones we read and hear about maximum. Thanks for adding details.



  • Magadh Stock Exchange Ltd. seems to be out and nowhere to be found on the list nor in exited exchange here. https://www.sebi.gov.in/stock-exchanges.html



  • @Tarun Hi, thanks for pointing out. Yes, Magadh Stock exchange was closed way back. So, we should discuss on active stock exchanges only.



  • @Tarun Thanks buddy! May be I added an old one in my list. But, yes now it's updated with the list of stock exchanges that are currently active in India.



  • @Ishu
    Thanks for asking this question.
    Stock exchange is a place where investor buy and sell the shares of a company. As of now there are 23 SEBI approved Stock Exchanges in the country. Stock market is managed and regulated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). Indian stock exchanges may refer to the 18 official stock exchanges located in India, the largest of which are the NSE and BSE.
    Thank you!
