Why NSE, BSE are conducting a special live trading session?

Both NSE and BSE announced last month that they will be conducting a special live trading session on the first Saturday of March i.e. March 2 to ensure a smooth transition from the primary website to the emergency website in case of a disaster. This emergency disaster preparedness is a mandate of SEBI.

NSE wrote in its official circular, “Members are requested to note that Exchange shall be conducting a special live trading session with intra-day switch over from Primary site to Disaster Recovery site on Saturday, March 02, 2024, in Equity and Equity Derivatives segments.”
