What is Nifty Metal?

The Nifty Metal Index is a sectoral index on the National Stock Exchange (NSE) that captures the performance of the metals sector in the Indian economy. It consists of 15 tradeable companies listed on NSE, primarily involved in two sub-sectors: Metals & Mining (94.11%) and Capital Goods (5.89%). The index provides a comprehensive view of the metal industry's health and its contribution to the broader market.

Launched on July 12, 2011, with a base date of January 1, 2004, and a base value of 1000, the Nifty Metal Index has become a critical benchmark for the Indian metals sector.

The Nifty Metal Index is owned and managed by NSE Indices Limited, formerly known as India Index Services & Products Limited (IISL). It is governed by a three-tier structure, comprising the Board of Directors of NSE Indices, the Index Advisory Committee, and the Index Maintenance Sub-Committee.
