    The reply is awaited on this issue, the exchange added. According to sources, CBI has initiated an inquiry into the clearance given by commodity markets regulator Forward Markets Commission (FMC) to MCX to bring its IPO in 2012 which was allegedly against certain regulations.

    The discreet inquiry could be turned into a regular case if the agency found prima facie evidence of any alleged irregularities, they added.

    The sources said the CBI is looking into the role of regulator FMC which has given some exemptions to MCX before bringing its IPO.

    MCX, promoted by Jignesh Shah who is facing number of probes, had planned an IPO in 2009-10 but it was postponed because of global financial meltdown.

    Meanwhile, FMC brought in new regulations from which MCX sought exemptions to float an IPO again. The IPO became a gainer in 2012 despite poor market conditions.

    MCX' shares were trading up by 2 per cent at Rs 1,062.75 apiece in the afternoon trade today.
