The new tick size will apply to all securities, except ETFs, listed under the EQ, BE, BZ, BO, RL, and AF series.

The National Stock Exchange (NSE) announced a significant change in its trading parameters from June 10. The NSE will put in place a one paisa tick size for all stocks priced below 250 per share with the aim to improve price discovery in the market, it said.
