Stock Exchanges in India are privately owned Businesses. As is the objective of any business, stock exchanges also exist to earn profits. Their most significant source of Income comes from the Exchange Transaction Charges. Simply put, the exchange takes a small charge on the turnover from every trader or Investor per trade to provide them the technology platform to buy & sell securities.
