Description: Database of the financials of Indian companies.

Produced by the Centre for the Monitoring of the Indian Economy (CMIE). Provides time-series data beginning 1989-90 on:

  • Identity and background (name, address, industry, size, year of incorporation, etc.)
  • Ownership and governance (board composition, meetings, major stakeholders, subsidiaries etc.)
  • Financial data
  • Share prices and capital history
  • Business segments and products
  • Capital expenditures and mergers & acquisitions

Prowess is installed on Computer 2 in the Financial Databases Room.

For help see Prowess: Screening and Reporting or CMIE documentation. Information on using the product is under "Local Prowess Installation."

A new version called Prowessdx has been released. The dx version is web enabled and facilitates large data downloads.

To gain access go to the Prowessdx and click on "New User Registration." Once you have your credentials you will be able to use Prowessdx.

Please note that the number of company downloads is limited, but the amount of fields downloaded for each company is not. To maximize our use of Prowessdx, please download all the data you need for each company at once. Unfortunately, there is no screening capability in the dx product. One must choose one of their pre-defined sets.
