This move came as part of the index's latest rejig with Shriram Finance stepping in to replace UPL Ltd.

Financial Implications and Performance

According to the analyst Shriram Finance's inclusion in the Nifty 50 is expected to attract approximately $217 million in inflows while UPL may witness outflows amounting to $114 million. This reshuffle comes against the backdrop of Shriram Finance's impressive performance with its shares surging by over 96% in the past year, Conversely UPL has seen its shares decline by around 35% during the same period.
