A brief history

Established in the year 2003, the National Commodity & Derivative Exchange is an online platform that allows agricultural commodity exchange. Established as a public limited company under the Companies Act, 1956, it has an independent board of directors that has no direct interest in agriculture.

NCDEX is regulated by the Stock Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and subjected to every law similar to other exchanges. 

It allows the trading of commodity derivatives for the participants. With Vijay Kumar as the CEO and MD of NCDEX, it is headquartered in Mumbai.

About NCDEX Operations

Based on average daily turnover, the company is the leader in its segment. It is one of the largest commodity exchange based in India. After MCX (Multi Commodity Exchange) that allows trades in metal and energy, NCDEX is the second-largest trading platform in India. 

In the segment of an agricultural commodities exchange, NCDEX is the largest. It accounted for 78% market share in the agricultural commodities segment in Fiscal 2019, 81.5% in Fiscal 2018, 79.9% in Fiscal 2017. The company has held its market-leading position from the year 2005.

Impact of NCDEX on Indian Agriculture

  • India is an agrarian country. More than 43% of the total working population in India is employed in Primary agriculture sector. Moreover, the contribution of agriculture in India’s GDP stands around 18 per cent. This data suggests that agriculture is a critical part of the Indian Economy.
  • India is the largest or second-largest producer of Rice, Wheat, Milk, Fruits and Vegetables.
  • Although most of these products are consumed in India only to feed the colossal population of India, India is slowly inching towards becoming a leader in the agriculture sector through exports. 
  • Moreover, per acre production in India is also increasing with the introduction of various farm technologies and modern equipment. In such a case, it is vital to pay attention to this sector. NCDEX is playing a crucial role in strengthening India’s growing agricultural prowess and taking it on the global front.
  • Some major commodities traded on the NCDEX include Wheat, Barley, Soybean, Sugarcane etc. It also hosts some Global Benchmark contracts, like Coriander. 
  • Some commodities like pulses, guar, and spice are also traded on the NCDEX. There is no other platform where these items are traded. So, NCDEX is forming a crucial component of the Indian Economy.

How NCDEX is Helping Indian Agriculture and Farmers?

  1. NCDEX is playing an important role in establishing and maintaining transparency in future markets for crops. The transparency in operations helps farmers in the process of discovering the right price for their crops. 
  2. Before the establishment of NCDEX, commission agents very highly active in these trades. Every farmer had to grow through them for selling their goods. They controlled the whole market and farmers had to pay hefty commissions to these agents. This process was responsible for the poor prices that farmers got for their products. 
  3. But with the introduction of NCDEX, farmers are able to quote the right price for their crops even if they are not too active in the future market. NCDEX cuts out the agents and allows farmers to quote and get the right price for their farm products.
  4. Moreover, the quality standards in Indian agriculture products has improved multi-fold after the introduction of NCDEX. NCDEX has established some minimum standards for few products through contracts to raise awareness about the quality. 
  5. This has prompted Indian farmers and peasants to opt for more modern practices and adopt a measure that will improve the product qualities to a greater extent. The results are exceptional, product quality and product yields are increasing with every passing season.
  6. NCDEX operates on the market to market settlement basis. This means, any difference in the price against the price quoted in the contract and the price at the day’s end, will be adjusted from other accounts.  In the near future, SEBI is planning to make physical standards for settlement mandatory for multiple commodities, making the process more transparent and efficient.
