The trading hours for various markets regulated by the Reserve Bank were amended effective from April 7, 2020 in view of the operational dislocations and elevated levels of health risks posed by COVID-19.

With the graded roll-back of the lockdown and easing of restrictions on movement of people and functioning of offices, it has been decided to restore trading hours for regulated markets in a phased manner. Accordingly, with effect from November 9, 2020, the trading hours for the markets regulated by the Reserve Bank would be as under:
