Analysis of dividend trends for alarge sample of stocks traded on the Indian markets indicate that thepercentage of companies paying dividends has declined from 60.9 percent in1990 to 32.3 percent in 2001 and that only a few firms have paid consistentlevels of dividends. Of the payers, regular payers have consistently paidhigher dividend s compared to other firms. Overall Indian firms have becomeless likely to pay dividends by the close of century. Dividend-payingcompanies are more profitable and larger in size in comparison to nonpayers,though growth opportunities do not seem to have significantinfluence on the dividend policy of Indian firms.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||12th Annual Conference on Pacific Basin Finance, Economics, Accounting and Business, Bangkok, Thailand, 10-11 August||Conference Details:||12th Annual Conference on Pacific Basin Finance, Economics, Accounting and Business, Bangkok, Thailand, 10-11 August||Source of Publication:||Roads to Sustainable Asian Economic Prosperity: Proceedings of the 12th Annual Conference on Pacific Basin Finance, Economics, Accounting and Business, p. 1-33||Publisher:||School of Business UTCC||Place of Publication:||Bangkok, Thailand||Field of Research (FOR):||150201 Finance||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Statistics to Oct 2018:||Visitors: 125
