Notably, there will be no modifications to the expiry dates of existing monthly contracts for January and February 2024.

While the monthly and quarterly contracts experience a shift, the expiry day for weekly contracts will persist on Wednesdays, with similar provisions for trading holidays.

Impact on Existing Contracts:

All existing contracts available for trading on March 1, 2024, will undergo a preponement from the end of the day on February 29, 2024.
