Ever Keeping in line with the Make in India mantra for indigenous innovation Indianenterprises would rewrite their paradigm to harness technology and talent gettingIndias best to give their best to India.
For more than two decades the cream of Indian talent has written a new chapter inGlobal technology innovation and industry.

A muchawaited impetus by the Government Corporate and skilled professionals is rewriting a newchapter of growth and India powered by youth is prepared for a trajectory ofindependent indigenous and innovative progress. We have been blessed with the gift offoresight in identifying and implementing benchmarks that set new superlatives in thefinancial markets and have become models of democratization. We wrote financial history intrading through our path-breaking technology laid and nurtured the foundation for themulti-asset markets in India and after etching a golden past in Indias businessarena we now are poised to write the future.
THE YEAR THAT WAS
Unjust persecution from vested forces had us force-exit businesses we cultivated and wecontinue to exercise every legal recourse at our disposal hoping that the truth of ourvictimization will finally prevail. We have held our stead with aplomb consolidating andsustaining our position. When the going gets tough the tough get going and its amatter of time before we redeem ourselves.

This renaming takesinspiration from the largest known ecosystem in the universe- that of the planet Jupiterand its 63 Moons. The discovery of each of these moons has intrigued mankind with thepresence of water hydrocarbons and oxygen- the basic blocks of life. This echoes theexpanse of our aspiration which will make every effort to turn it into a reality.
We want not just financial markets but our endeavour is to be with everytechnology-based industry in India to benefit from our ingrained expertise.

With theJS Innovation Lab as our crown- jewel its time for us to transit from our orbit ofa finance- vertical-led business to the next orbit of 63 moonsTM asan innovation and technology-led enterprise that would accelerate technovationin the market-space.
