According to The Economic Times, the venture capital industry in India is a flourishing one.
Popular perception about the Indian venture capital and private equity industry would probably suggest that it is a marginal part of the larger capital market in India. But that may not be true anymore.

On a different dimension, the 4,000-plus enterprises that have been funded by the industry need to be compared against around 1,847 enterprises that have been listed on the NSE over 23 years and 5,500 on the Bombay Stock Exchange have been added over more than 140 years.
