Nuovo portale specializzato per promuovere gli interessi e il collezionismo di titoli storici indiani.
Il catalogo dispone di una lista di certificati indiani emessi durante il periodo Inglese fino all’indipendenza dell’india 15 Agosto 1947.
Durante questo periodo l’India comprendeva India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Burma.
The website has been created to promote interest in collecting Indian material. It will be regularly updated as previously unknown certificates come to light.
The catalogue lists certificates issued in India during the period of British direct rule following the decline and dissolution of the East India Company (in circa 1858) until Indian independence and partition on 15th August 1947. During this period India comprised present day India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Burma (until 1st April 1837 when Burma became a separately administered British colony). The current population of these countries is about 1.6 billion so “India”, in the absence of partition, would easily be the most populous country in the world today.
The catalogue includes certificates issued by companies incorporated under the Indian Companies Acts and the Companies Acts of various Indian states and principalities denominated in rupees. It also includes many certificates issued by companies operating in India but incorporated in Great Britain under the British Companies Acts denominated in sterling. Finally there are a few certificates issued by Portuguese and French companies operating in those countries’ former Indian colonies of Goa and Pondicherry respectively.
