How do I purchase shares?

There are two ways to purchase shares

  • From a new issue of shares (Primary Market) -

The primary market is the market for new shares or debenture issues. In the primary market, the security is purchased directly from the issuer (company). In a primary issue, the company offering the share/debenture issue publishes a document known as the prospectus. It is an invitation to the general public to buy shares or debentures of that company.

  • On the Secondary Market through a stock broker -

A market in which an investor could either buy or sell shares, debentures and Government Securities from or to another investor, subsequent to the original issuance in the primary market.
