    Trading would be conducted in normal hours from 9.15 am to 3.30 pm, with the pre-opening session beginning at 9 am.

    There were worries that the exchanges would remain closed given the fact that the Union Budget 2015-16 will be delivered by Finance Minister, Arun Jaitley on a Saturday.

    U K Sinha, Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Board of India had earlier hinted that stock exchanges in India may be allowed to stay open for trading.

    The decision would ensure that traders and investors are allowed to enter and exit positions on the same day instead of Monday, March 2.
