The stock market consists of various participants who buy and sell numerous shares. These participants can be categorised into retail investors, large investors, and institutional investors. Retail investors are typically smaller investors, while large investors are individuals with high net worth.

What is a bulk deal?

A bulk deal is a type of transaction where a minimum of 5% of a company’s total equity shares are traded simultaneously during the regular trading session. Unlike block deals, these transactions can be executed at any time during regular trading hours and do not necessitate the opening of a special window. However, block deals involve single trades with a minimum of 5 lakh shares or a value of Rs 10 crore, where two parties agree to buy and sell shares at the same price.

Following are the block deals that occurred in November this year, the data were obtained from the official website of the National Stock Exchange.
