What do these indices indicate to investors?

These 4 indices will give more headroom to investors to participate in this competitive investment landscape of India. This competition has increased due to BSE coming up with different products in the F &O segment. Such index additions will lead to better competition by the NSE and an increase in the market share. We can see a significant impact of the Tata Group companies on the Indian stock market. Also with the revenue stream and stable government policies, the manufacturing sector is generating investor interest, making up a wider market participation.
