This stock trading practice originally started on the BSE in 1957. Years later, NSE adopted the same thing in 1997 for supporting the religious beliefs of Hindus on the occasion of Diwali.

Also, the firm said that the Indian stock market might sustain such a performance during Samvat 2079, Moreover, the stock market is expected to see a line of favourable macroeconomic factors.
