May 07, 2024 09:21 AM IST

It was earlier reported in September last year that Sebi is considering extending trading hours for the cash market.

National Stock Exchange MD & CEO Ashishkumar Chauhan said that market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) rejected the exchange's proposal to increase trading time during an analyst call. It was earlier reported in February this year that there was a proposal to extend trading hours for index futures which received in-principle approval from the Association of National Exchange Members of India (ANMI). It was then reported that the Brokers Industry Standards Forum (ISF) sent a formal letter to Sebi as well.
