In 2021, the share market of India generated a record Rs. 1.18 lakh crores by listing 63 companies on its exchanges. Experts predict that 2022 will be another profitable year for the stock market of this nation, as many companies are expected to go public in the coming months. The prediction is based on the fact that several companies have already filed their draft red herring prospectus with the Securities and Exchange Board of India and are awaiting approval to go public.
While January, February, March and April were slow, analysts predict that May will bring a resurgence of activity among companies listed on the bourses. They predict that May will witness a new sense of eagerness to enlist new companies on the exchange. As FY 2023 has begun, more companies will register their shares on the stock exchanges, and enthusiasm for future trading will grow further.
