Session Details

The special live trading session will unfold in two phases. The first phase will kick off with a 45-minute session starting at 9:15 am. Following this, the second session will commence at 11:30 am and conclude at 12:30 pm.

Market Regulations

During the March 2 session, futures contracts will be subject to a five percent operating range to manage volatility effectively. Additionally, securities in the Future and Options (F&O) segment will have upper and lower circuit limits of five percent, while those with a two percent limit will maintain their existing circuit limit.

These measures are put in place to prevent excessive market volatility and ensure stability during the live trading session.

Previous Postponement

Originally scheduled for January 20, the special session was postponed due to the Ram Temple consecration ceremony in Ayodhya. Consequently, a full-fledged trading session took place on January 20, and January 22 was declared a holiday for stock markets.

This uptrend was fueled by gains from select heavyweights, including SBI, Reliance Industries, and Axis Bank, amidst mixed global cues. The Sensex closed 268 points higher at 71,822.83, while the Nifty 50 settled at 21,840.05, up 97 points.
