NSE gets final approval to launch the Social Stock Exchange as a separate unit.

The SSE component will provide a new way for social enterprises to fund social initiatives, increase their visibility and bring greater transparency to how social enterprises raise and spend funds.

The exchange previously received approval in principle from Sebi to launch the SSE platform and is awaiting final approval.

In October last year, the BSE exchange received approval in principle from capital markets regulator SEBI to make the SSE a separate sector.
