Impact of the Changes in the Nifty Index Constituents

Srikanth Parthasarathy


The objective of this study is to conduct an empirical examination of the S&P CNX Nifty index reconstitutions, between 2009 and 2018, focusing on both the price and non-price effects and the explanations surrounding them. The event methodology, with multiple abnormal return computational methods, is employed to improve the robustness and reliability of the results. The results show that the Nifty index additions (deletions) are associated with significant positive (negative) permanent abnormal returns. But the evidence of permanent abnormal volume is limited, unlike the developed markets. The evidence in this study favours the downward sloping demand curve hypothesis as the dominant explanation for the permanent abnormal return. This study extends the existing literature to a hitherto unexplored new sample period.
