India has struggled financially since independence, experiencing slow economic growth and economic setbacks due to climatic extremes or political disturbances. The country has been gradually transforming its economic base from agrarian to industrial and commercial. Under British rule in the 19th century, India's cottage industries and thriving trade were virtually destroyed to make way for European manufactured goods, paid for by exports of agricultural products such as cotton, opium, and tea. Beginning in the late 19th century a modern industrial sector and an extensive infrastructure of railways and irrigation works were slowly built with British and Indian capital. Nevertheless, India's economy stagnated during the last 30 or so years of British rule.

From a stock perspective, the implication of this model is that the non diversifiable market risk is the important risk and a stock's riskiness is measured by its vulnerability to market risk. [...]

[...] OVERVIEW OF THE STOCK MARKET MOVEMENT Trend of FIIs in 2003-04 Buoyed by a conducive investment environment, net inflows of foreign institutional investors (FIIs) in the Indian equity and debt markets recorded an almost 10-fold rise in 2003 at Rs crore (US dollar 7.59 billion) as against Rs crore (USD 763.5 million) registered in the previous year. The net purchases in equities stood at Rs crore (USD 6.59 billion) in the calendar year 2003 while in case of debt instruments, it was Rs crore (USD 995.4 million), according to the data available with Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) at Mumbai.
