"BSE has become the first universal exchange in India with the launch of commodity derivatives which has reinforced itself as the most agile and foremost exchange in the country and is focussed on identifying and creating new business opportunities that would create value for its stakeholders and the nation," its MD and CEO Ashishkumar Chauhan said.
