India International Exchange's cumulative total trading turnover has crossed $500 billion, driven by a substantial jump in trading volume which has increased to over 3.71 crore contracts, the exchange said.

"The substantial increase in trading volume and open interest on the India INX derivatives segment further reinforces our leadership in the IFSC GIFT City. This is a clear indication of the effectiveness of our strategy and showcases our capability to become a leading international derivatives exchange in the years ahead.
"Further, the Reserve Bank of India's monetary policy allowing rupee derivatives to be traded in IFSC GIFT City will attract more participants to the IFSC and increase liquidity," India INX Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Balasubramaniam V said.
