NSE Indices' Index Maintenance Sub-Committee has decided to make the replacement of stocks in various indices as part of its periodic review. These changes would become effective from 27 March 2020. Also, NSE Indices has revised the eligibility criteria for inclusion in Nifty's 17 sectoral indices.
Under the new criteria, companies should be a part of Nifty 500 at the time of review.
In case, the number of eligible stocks representing a particular sector within Nifty 500 falls below 10, then deficit number of stocks shall be selected from the universe of stocks ranked within top 800 based on both average daily turnover and average daily full market capitalisation based on previous six months period data used for the index.
At present, companies need to rank within the top 800 based on both average daily turnover and average daily full market capitalisation based on the previous six months period data for inclusion in the indices.
