Dalal Street signage

Dalal Street in downtown Mumbai, India is the address of the Bombay Stock Exchange (in the Phiroze Jeejeebhoy Towers) and several related financial firms and institutions. When Bombay Stock Exchange was moved to this new location at the intersection of Bombay Samāchār Marg and Hammam Street, the street next to the building was renamed as Dalal Street[citation needed]. The Hindi word dalāl means "a broker", "a go-between".[1] Similar to Wall Street in the New York City, it is often used as a metonym for the entire Indian financial establishment.
