SEBI, in its March 28 board meeting, had approved a framework to strengthen the derivatives market. It had laid down a road map to align cash and derivative segments through physical settlement for all stock derivatives in a phased and calibrated manner.

The regulator tightened the selection criteria for introduction of stocks into the derivative segment. It increased the market wide position limit and median quarter-sigma order size from the current level of Rs 300 crore and Rs 10 lakh respectively to Rs 500 crore and Rs 25 lakh respectively. It also included an additional criterion – of average daily ‘deliverable’ value in the cash market of Rs 10 crore. These enhanced criteria would need to be met for a period of six months for a stock to remain in the derivative segment.
