India Stock market, share market or equity market all three mean the  same. These are markets where you can buy or sell a company’s shares. 

Buying shares of a company means buying some percentage of ownership of that company. 

That is you become the holder of a percentage of that company. If that  company makes a profit, some percentage of that profit would also be  given to you. 

Telling you an example of this on the smallest scale, presume you have  to establish a start up. You have 10,000 rupees, but that’s not enough  so, you go to your friend and tell him to invest another 10,000 rupees  and offer him a 50-50 partnership. 

So whatever your company profits in the future, 50% of it would be  yours. 50% of it would be your friends. In this case, you’ve given 50%  of the shares to your friend in this company.

The only difference being, instead of going to your friend, you go the  entire world. And invite them to buy shares in your company. 

India Stock market is that place, that building where people buy and  sell shares of the companies. The market can be divided into two types-  the primary market and the secondary market, 1. 

The companies decide what exactly would be their share prices, although  there are some regulations in this to, the companies cannot men oeuvre  too much because a lot of it depends upon the demand, 

how much price the people are willing to pay for the company’s shares if the value of the company is 1 million rupees.
