Mumbai, June 10, 2020: In the current situation of Covid-19, technology has become a key enabler for all businesses. Since the advent of screen based trading in 1994, all exchanges in India have been providing front office order routing software on cloud based hosted solution or on desktop to all their members. Additionally, they also allowed third party vendors to provide software and services to stock brokers. The current framework does not prohibit any exchange or their subsidiaries to provide such services to its members for one or more exchanges.


BSE has provided several solutions to all Its members including BOLT, BOLT+, BOLT on WEB, BEST etc as order routing platforms provided by BSE or its subsidiaries.


BSE is reiterating that BSE will continue offering BOLTPlus on WEB (BOW) and BSE Electronic Smart Trader (BEST), Cloud Based Hosted Solution services related to front office order routing software to its members in this current pandemic situation in addition to front end desk top solution like BOLT and BOLT+.

Shri Sameer Patil, CBO - BSE: “BSE and its subsidiary Marketplace Tech Infra do not charge for BOW and BEST services. These services are even more important because many third party CTCL and IML service providers don’t provide software for new segments of exchanges in time and at a reasonable cost. Our services therefore ensures that all members, especially small-sized members, can remain connected and trade seamlessly without any technological interruptions at no cost. In these uncertain times, BSE via its subsidiary Marketplace Tech Infra will continue to handhold all trading members for business continuity.”
