The NIFTY 500 is India's initial widely established index of stock markets. It encompasses the top 500 NSE-listed companies. 

The NIFTY 500 index accounts for roughly 96.1% of the NSE's or National Stock Exchange's free float market capitalization and 96.5% of all trading activity (NSE). There are 72 industry indexes made up of the NIFTY 500 firms. 

The index's sector weights correspond to market industry weighting. For instance, when the banking sector makes up 5% of the total number of companies listed on the NSE, then about 5% of the index would've been made up of banking stocks.
