​SGX said it is working with NSE to develop a link that will allow market participants to trade on NSE's International Exchange in Gujarat International Finance Tech (GIFT) city while managing their clearing exposures through SGX.

This will provide market participants with the same ability to invest and maintain their risk exposure to the Indian capital markets, the exchange said in a statement.

In the meantime, the SGX Nifty family of products can continue to list, trade and clear uninterrupted on SGX until August 2018 at a minimum, supported by the current licence agreement with NSE.

Details of the successor products and progress on the link will be communicated by March 2018, said the Singapore bourse in the statement.
