Communitiy Initiatives

MCX believes in achieving inclusive growth and facilitating social change. The primary objective of our community initiatives is to demonstrate the utility of commodity futures market to the marginalised players in the commodities ecosystem by creating sustainable and viable models. Our key community initiatives include

  • Awareness and Capacity Building
    Our financial and market literacy initiatives aim to create awareness among existing and potential market participants and investors on market mechanisms, enabling them to take informed decisions. The format of these initiatives ranges from product leaflets, factsheets to presentation and discussions.
    Our awareness programmes are customised depending on the target audience. For example, the focus for members and investors would be on trading aspects, rules and bye-laws of the exchange, clearing and settlement functions related to their trading activities; while for hedgers and potential hedgers, it would also cover the benefits of managing their risk in an organized way. We also share their queries and feedback with the regulator.
  • MCX-FMC Price Dissemination Project
    To reduce the information asymmetry and spread awareness on futures price information, especially in remote locations of the country, MCX in partnership with Forward Market Commission and other commodity exchanges initiated the Price Dissemination Project (PDP). The project displays spot and futures price on a ticker boards installed at a centrally located place in APMC mandis (markets).
