The financial markets of India play a vital role in the overall economic stance, growth, and development of the nation. The Indian markets as we often name it include two stock exchanges, i.e. Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE). These two exchanges are tasked with facilitating the overall sale/purchase and distribution of stocks, commodities, bonds, and other instruments. But these markets do not operate every day of the year. There are certain holidays as per the list of Indian market holidays 2023 and we here take a look at it below.
