After a lot of searching, I could see that our forum has no thread dedicated to collecting and interpreting broad market data sets. I a firm believer in looking at the numbers many times over during my investment life cycle in a stock. As such, I am naturally a fan of Prof. Aswath Damodaran.
At the beginning of every year, the Professor collects paid data from many sources and puts them together for us in his website. What is the best part? It’s completely free for you to download!

This thread should ideally be limited to data warehousing and interpretation of Indian broad market data. This first post should be updated with new links every year. Until we get a better source of these data, I think it is best to stick to Prof. Aswath Damodaran’s website as the only source.
