The addition of the above 8 stocks will take the total number of eligible stocks in F&O from 180 to 188. The other details pertaining to the F&O contracts of these 8 stocks including market lot, scheme of strike prices and the quantity freeze limits will be intimated by the exchange separately on 28-October, a day before the F&O contracts on these 8 stocks go live.
