The study done is descriptive in nature where secondary sources were used to collect the data. Purposive sampling technique was used for sampling insurance and banking companies. The sample size was of 8 insurance companies from Nikkie225 and 15 banking companies from NSE CNX S&P Nifty stock exchanges (used in the formulation of index).
