The index Committee of the NSE regularly changes the composition of the index based on various parameters. One of the most common reasons for the change in indices is when companies have to be removed from an index on account of the demerger announced by a company. The demerger leads to a part or division of the company being hived off into a separate company (listed or unlisted). In such cases, as part of the scheme of arrangement, the companies have to issue shares in the demerged entity to the existing shareholders of the parent to compensate for the exit of the business. These changes to the index will be effective from the close of 27th of April 2023, i.e., effective from trading on 28th April 2023, which marks the start of the new F&O settlement contract.

As per the Index Maintenance Sub-Committee (Equity) of NSE Indices Limited, the following stocks would be replaced from various indices due to specific reasons assigned here under. As stated earlier, all these changes would be effective from April 28th, 2023 (i.e., the close of April 27th, 2023). All these changes are on account of scheme of demerger.

  1. Bajaj Electricals Ltd (BAJAJELEC) will be removed from the various indices due to the scheme of arrangement for demerger of its power and the power distribution Business into Bajel Projects Ltd.

  2. Edelweiss Financial Services Ltd (EDELWEISS) will also be removed from the various indices under the scheme of arrangement announced for the demerger of its wealth management business. The wealth management business would be demerged into a separate entity called Nuvama Wealth Management Limited. This business was formerly a part of Edelweiss Securities Limited. The same has been approved by the equity shareholders of the company. The exactly swap ratio and other terms of the demerger arrangement are yet to be finalized and announced.
