What do these new indices mean to investors?

With four new indices, we will give a more comprehensive approach to participating in India's economic growth. Concerning Tata Group companies, we can see a significant influence of Tata Group companies on the Indian stock market. The competitive intensity has increased due to BSE offering various products in its F&O segment. These additions would provide a competitive advantage to the NSE and help it garner market share going forward. Also, the increasing investor interest in the manufacturing theme due to the revenue visibility and stable government policies should garner market interest as it allows broader market participation in the sector.
