BSE completed 44 years since 1979-80 (base year). But what is the return per Year? Does the SENSEX give a good return per Year in the long term?

Why 1979-80 years? This is the base year of the Sensex. That is the Year from which Sensex came into existence with the base as 100.

The decision to invest in equity has yielded remarkable results, producing a return that is equivalent to 589.91 times the initial investment.
