Mumbai, Nov 24: Barely three weeks after the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) chairman C B Bhave advised the stock exchanges to communicate in local languages, the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) has announced that it will be launching websites in many regional languages
"BSE will soon roll out language websites...At present we have websites in Hindi, English and Gujarati... We will create more in Marathi, Tamil, Telegu and Punjabi," media reports quote an anonymous senior official as saying.
This comes after the reports of Raj Thackeray-led Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) submitting a memorandum to the exchange Deputy Chief Executive Officer Ashish Chauhan asking inclusion of Marathi in the BSE website.
However, SEBI denied this.
"SEBI does not have any officer with designation Deputy Chief Executive Officer or by the name of Ashish Kumar Chauhan. SEBI has neither relaunched its website recently nor does it have a Gujarati website," the market regulator said in a statement.
Inaugurating partnership between Madras Stock Exchange (MSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE) on Nov 6, SEBi Chairman Mr Bhave has asked the stock exchanges to communicate in regional languages in order to reach out to larger audiences.
