Amazingly Only 451 clients account for 50% of NSE daily turnover !!!

As many as 451 client identities accounted for about 50 per cent of the average daily turnover in the cash equity segment of the National Stock Exchange in the first quarter this fiscal.

This was stated by the Minister of State for Finance, Mr Namo Narain Meena, in a written reply to question posed by Mr Sukhdev Singh Dhindsa in the Rajya Sabha.

The number is even more intriguing in the derivatives segment, with only 106 clients accounting for 50 per cent of the average daily turnover.
