The new list will be valid from February 2022 to July 2022. Market cap average of roughly six months is always used for assessment and calculation.
As per ICICI Securities, new age e-commerce spaces are most likely to shift towards large cap. The probability is high for certain stocks like Zomato, One97 Communications (Paytm), PB Fintech Policybazaar) and FSN E-Commerce (Nykaa). The move towards elite list will cause rise in share prices.
