The benchmark equity index – Nifty 50 hit an all-time high of 18,887.60 in the calendar year. Liquidity witnessed significant strength across most product categories, including equities, equity derivatives and currency derivatives.
In the calendar year 2022, Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs) in the equity segment had a daily average turnover of Rs. 470 crore, which is an increase of 51 percent year-on-year. The average daily turnover of Sovereign Gold Bonds in the secondary market in calendar year 2022 is Rs. 7 crore, which is an increase of 59 percent year-on-year.

The NSE is expected to soon see the launch of the Social Stock Exchange as a segment entity, subject to regulatory approvals. These ‘Social Enterprises’ will enable especially philanthropic organizations to showcase their operations to a wider audience and raise funds by issuing mediums like Zero Coupon Zero Principal Bonds, facilitate participants to participate in socially beneficial activities and bring efficiency and transparency to the entire ecosystem.
