Special LIVE trading sessions on 20 January 2024

On Saturday, 20 January 2024, NSE & BSE will host a special LIVE trading session in the Equity and Derivative (F&O) segments.

Why is this session happening?

This session is happening because SEBI wants to ensure that market intermediaries such as Exchanges, Clearing Houses, and Depository Organizations can smoothly switch to a backup plan - the Disaster Recovery (DR) site in case of an unexpected disaster. It aims to ensure that trading activities continue without interruptions and that all data remains secure.
