In a major shakeup of India's stock market indices, LTIMindtree is set to replace HDFC in the Nifty index, while JSW Steel will take HDFC's seat in the Sensex. These changes are expected to increase HDFC Bank's influence on all three major indices due to a higher weightage assigned to it.

The Nifty index, comprising the top 50 companies listed on the National Stock Exchange (NSE), will see HDFC Bank's newly merged entity taking the lead with a weightage of 14.43%, surpassing Reliance Industries' weightage of 10.8%. LTIMindtree, the newly included company, will hold a weightage of 0.55%.
