    Birth of BSE, Asia’s Oldest Stock Exchange
    The roots of a stock market in India appeared in the 1860s during the American Civil War that led to a sudden surge in the demand for cotton from India resulting in setting up of a number of joint stock companies that issued securities to raise finance. This trend was akin to the rapid growth of securities markets in Europe and the North America in the background of expansion of railroads and exploration of natural resources and land development. Historical records show that as early as 1864, there were about 1,000 brokers with the stock markets functioning from three places in Mumbai; between 9 am to 7 pm at the junction of Meadows Street and Rampart Row, from day break till 9 am and from 7 pm to early hours of next morning at Bazargate. Share prices rose sharply even at that time. A share of Colada Land Company during the boom period of the 1860s rose from Rs. 10,000 at par to Rs. 120,000 and that of Backbay shares went up from Rs. 2,000 to Rs. 54,000. Bombay, at that time, was a major financial centre having housed 31 banks, 20 insurance companies and 62 joint stock companes. Reports on stock markets around that time indicate that an ordinary broker in 1864 earned about Rs. 200 per day, a huge sum in those days. The boom period came to an abrupt end in 1865. In jul 1865, what was then used to be called the share mania ended with brust of the stock market bubble. Birth of BSE, Asia’s Oldest Stock Exchange
    “Never I witnessed in any place a run so widely distributed nor such distress followed so quickly on the heels of such prosperity” thus wrote Richard Temple, who served as the Governor of Bombay at that time. An interesting aspect is that despite the college of the stock market, most of the brokers met their payment commitments. In the aftermath of the crash, banks, on whose building steps share brokers used to gather to seek stock tips and share news, disallowed them to gather there, thus forcing them to find a place of their own, which later turned into the Dalal Street. A group of about 300 brokers formed the stock exchange in Jul 1875, which led to the formation of a trust in 1887 knows as the “Native Share and stock Brokers Association”.
    “This is how Asia’s oldest exchange – BSE WAS BORN”
