Index Construction and Industry/Sector Representation

1.   All companies meeting the eligibility factors are ranked based on their average six-month float-adjusted market capitalization. The top 75 are identified.

1.   All companies meeting the eligibility factors are ranked based on their average six-month float-adjusted market capitalization. The top 75 are identified.

 

2.   All companies meeting the eligibility factors are ranked again based on their average six-month total market capitalization. The top 75 are identified.

2.  All companies meeting the eligibility factors are ranked again based on their average six-month total market capitalization. The top 75 are identified.

 

3.   All companies identified based on steps 1 and 2 are then combined and sorted based on their average six-month value traded. Companies with a cumulative value traded greater than 98% are excluded.

3.  All companies identified based on steps 1 and 2 are then combined and sorted based on their annualized traded value. Companies with a cumulative annualized traded value greater than 98% are excluded.

 

4.   The remaining companies are then sorted by average six-month float-adjusted market capitalization. Companies with a weight of less than 0.5% are excluded.

4.  The remaining companies are then sorted by average six-month float-adjusted market capitalization. Companies with a weight of less than 0.5% are excluded

 

5.   All remaining companies are classified by sector and then sorted in descending order of rank by average six month float-adjusted market capitalization. These companies make up the replacement pool, to be included in the index if an existing constituent is removed.

5.  The remaining companies from step 4 are then ranked based on their average six-month float-adjusted market capitalization, and are selected for index inclusion according to the following rules:

       The top 21 companies (whether a current index constituent or not) are selected for index inclusion with no sector consideration.

       Existing constituents ranked 22    39 are selected in order of highest rank until the target constituent count of 30 is reached.

       If after this step the target constituent count is not achieved, then non-constituents ranked 22    30 are selected by giving preference to those companies whose sector is underrepresented in the index as compared to the sector representation in the S&P BSE AllCap.

       If after this step, the target constituent count is still not achieved, non-constituents are selected in order of highest rank until the target constituent count is reached.

 

6.   An index addition generally is made only if a vacancy is created by an index deletion. Index additions are made according to size and liquidity, while generally attempting to maintain index sector weights that are broadly in-line with the overall market.

6. This step is eliminated and replaced by step 5.

 

7.   All additions and deletions are made at the discretion of index committee.

7.  All additions and deletions are made at the discretion of index committee.

Other methodology changes for the S&P BSE SENSEX, as proposed in the consultation, will not be made at this time.
