This list keeps on changing semi-annually based on averages on six months’ data. Even though the Nifty index only represents 50 of the 1600 businesses listed on the NSE, it accounts for up to 66 percent of the NSE’s float-adjusted market capitalization (float-adjusted means when an index considers only the shares that are available for investors and not held by other companies or government). As a result, it is thought to be a true reflection of the Indian stock market.
