The year 2010 has been a year of outreach for the National Stock Exchange, or NSE, the country's largest equities market. Through recent tie-ups with Chicago-based CME Group and the Singapore Exchange, the NSE is going one-up on upstarts like MCX-SX.
Chitra Ramkrishna, unarguably India's most powerful woman in the lucrative exchanges space, shrugs off the competition as inevitable. "Competition is an integral part of the evolution of any industry and in the same vein we take it in our stride," says Ramkrishna who, last September, was elevated to Joint MD from Deputy MD at the NSE.
