The largest share of stock market turnover still comes from high networth Individuals in India. NSE data says that 75% stock market trading in December from across the country came from merely 0.2% of the total investors. 

States like Gujarat, Maharashtra and Uttar Pradesh also show the same trend where a greater number of people invest in stock markets, said NSE officials. 

Total 1.3 crore investors who traded in December, only 23,491 traded in ticket sizes above Rs 10 crore. However, they accounted for 75% of the total turnover in the month.

Data indicates that the number of active individual investors reached a new high of 1.30 crore during the month.
