BSE is crucial to India's economic development since it oversees and directs the country's financial markets. Trades, business, and end-of-day data are all part of the package.

On weekdays, trade-in BSE runs from 9:15 a.m. through 3:30 p.m., while Saturday and Sunday are BSE holidays. In addition to weekends, BSE holidays also include several national holidays of cultural or religious significance.
