Group A:

It is the most tracked class of scripts consisting of about 200 scripts. Market capitalization is one key factor in deciding which scrip should be classified in Group A. At present there are 216 companies in the A group.

Group S:

The Exchange has introduced a new segment named BSE Indonext w.e.f. January 7, 2005. The S Group represents scripts forming part of the BSE-Indonext segment. S group consists of scripts from B1 & B2 group on BSE and companies exclusively listed on regional stock exchanges having capital of 3 crores to 30 crores. All trades in this segment are done through BOLT system under S group.

Group Z:

The Z group was introduced by the Exchange in July 1999 and includes the companies which have failed to comply with the listing requirements of the Exchange and/or have failed to resolve investor complaints or have not made the required arrangements with both the Depositories, viz., Central Depository Services (I) Ltd.

The grouping is done by BSE , based on mkt capitalisation, daily traded volumes and volatality factor , also known as VaR. Broadly, all stocks below 100 Cr. mkt cap are in Z catagory , where u have to pay 100% margin for purchase & sell. T group stocks are Trade to trade . If u bt 100 shares of T group , u cannot sell them same day. For sale , u should have delivery in hand . A group shares u can buy & sell same day , as many times as u can and net qty is deliverable in Rolling settl basis. A group is the most liquid . B & B! are less liquid. U can see the stocks in each group on bseindia.com web site
