T+1 Settlement – One Biggest Change
The switch to T+1 settlement for all equities was one of the biggest changes to the stock market indices. The stock market’s increased liquidity and shorter wait times for investors executing security transactions are mostly due to the T+1 settlement.
The period for listing securities on the primary market has been reduced to T+3 days. With tools like Zero Coupon Zero Principal Bonds, the NSE made sure to help social enterprises (NPOs and FPEs) reach a wider audience for their work under its recently launched Social Stock Exchange segment. This allowed participants to contribute to charitable causes and improved efficiency and transparency across the ecosystem.
