OPERATIONAL REVIEW:

Indian equity markets witnessed a revival in the secondary market segment, which had recorded a sharp decline in the wake of the global financial crisis during the later half of 2008 . The secondary market staged a handsome recovery in 2009 following stimulus measures implemented by the Government and resurgence of foreign portfolio flows displaying renewed interest by foreign investors. The subdued global commodity prices in the beginning of 2009 also lifted the sentiments in the Indian capital market. Furthermore, election results announced in May 2009 removed uncertainty on economic policies and as such boosted Indian equity markets and both benchmark and sectoral indices rallied. The equity markets gained further till September 2009 on positive cues from the global markets, before declining during October 2009. Market sentiments improved during November- December 2009, leading to gains in equity prices and an uptrend in equity market indices. Against the backdrop of these trends in Indian equity markets, the regulatory measures initiated during the year were clearly in the direction of introducing greater transparency, protecting investors interests and improving efficiency in the working of Indian equity markets, while also ensuring the soundness and stability of the Indian capital market. Turnover in the spot and derivatives segment on the NSE recorded an increase of 19.6 per cent and 33.6 per cent respectively in 2009.
