Yes Bank to be dropped from Nifty 50 from 19 March instead of 27 March: NSE

Private lender Yes Bank will be removed from 19 March instead of 27 March as reported earlier, from the benchmark index Nifty 50, according to news reports

According to a PTI report earlier, Shree Cement will replace private lender Yes Bank in the benchmark index Nifty 50 from 27 March.

Passively-managed equity schemes—Index funds and Exchange Traded Funds (ETFs)—mirroring the Nifty could end up underperforming the benchmark measure due to restrictions on sale of Yes Bank, which exits the index by end of this month, according to a report in The Economic Times.

Further, Vodafone Idea, Ashok Leyland, Indiabulls Housing Finance, L&T Finance Holdings and Shree Cement will be dropped from Nifty Next 50, NSE Indices said in a statement.

Adani Transmission, IDBI Bank, Info Edge (India) Ltd, Larsen & Toubro Infotech and Torrent Pharmaceuticals would be added in Nifty Next 50 index.

Under the new criteria, companies should be a part of Nifty 500 at the time of review.

At present, companies need to rank within top 800 based on both average daily turnover and average daily full market capitalisation based on previous six months period data for inclusion in the indices.
