THE PRIME DIRECTORY-1994, the first edition, was an original compilation.... bringing into one single document, critical information about all intermediaries associated with the primary capital market. Until then, knowing who the intermediaries were, what they did, what  their performance was,  how to reach them... was a complicated process. The benefits  of having all this information on fingertips  was the objective of THE PRIME DIRECTORY-1994.

An updated edition, THE PRIME DIRECTORY-1995, was formally released by Shri D.R.Mehta, Chairman,  Securities & Exchange Board of India. The significantly updated 1996 edition was formally released by Shri J.Capoor, Chairman, Unit Trust of India. The subsequent annual editions provided new formats, new sections and updated information on the market and its intermediaries. 

THE PRIME DIRECTORY-2016

The new edition presents significant updation of information over the last edition. It also identifies the intermediaries continuing in business, as also those who have gone out of business. The new Directory : 

An overview of the Primary Capital Market for 2015-2016 is also provided.

A COMPREHENSIVE ADDRESS DIRECTORY

This new edition runs into 1564 pages, covers 25657 intermediaries/organisations  with their 27827 addresses, listed alphabetically in 50 sections. Included in each listing, wherever applicable, are :

 

ALSO A PERFORMANCE DIRECTORY

Importantly, THE PRIME DIRECTORY-2016 is not just  an address directory. It also provides, for each intermediary, easy-to-read performance data, rankings and details of assignments handled over the past  5 years, thereby enabling the reader to evaluate the standing of each intermediary in the marketplace.Moreover, overview tables of rankings for 4 years  have been provided at the end of each section. 

IN ONE DIRECTORY...
Information that is near-impossible to obtain...or would require years of research in scores of scattered sources

This is not a Shelf Directory...
it is a Table Directory to be
used every single day
