"The existing unexpired contracts of expiry months June 2020, July 2020 and August 2020 shall be available for trading till their respective expiry and new strikes shall also be introduced in the existing contract months," they added.

At present, there are over 200 stocks in the F&O segment.

The decision of the exchanges is based on SEBI's February 2019 proposal of a slew of measures including capping the maximum daily movement to up to 20 percent for all stocks, including the ones that are part of F&O segment, in order to check excessive price movements.
