Group “A” comprise of commodities such as Soya oil, R M seed, Castor seed, Chana, Guar, Kapas, spices, etc. The Exchange currently does not levy any risk management fee although the Exchange incurs substantial amount of expenditure to maintain necessary infrastructure and process for the clients keeping open positions end of the day.
Speaking on the move, Mr. Samir Shah, MD & CEO, NCDEX said “Every client has different interest of trade or investment in commodity market. We have tried to levy risk management fee only on the group where the Exchange has to put more efforts and has to incur more expenditure to facilitate risk management service. This fee will help the Exchange to provide better services to clients.”
The fresh open position value will be computed daily based on contract wise incremental open positions and will be collected as Exchange dues. However this fee will not applicable on intraday transactions in both “A” and “B” group as well as all transactions in “B” group commodities.
