India has the second largest share holding population with around 1.5 crore shareholders; next only to the United States of America which has about 5 crore shareholders. India is significantly ahead of countries like Japan, United Kingdom and France in this regard, the Indian figure may look impressive, but it constitutes only 1.5 percent of the total population.

The country also has a large number of debenture holders, whose figure stands at around 50 lakhs (5 million). Here, it is important to note that most of the debenture holders are prospective shareholders as they are waiting for the conversion of their debentures into equity shares.
