Constituent futures contracts should be in existence on the respective exchange for at least previous twelve months, and should have traded for at least 90 per cent of trading days in last twelve months and have a minimum average daily turnover. The turnover should be at least Rs 75 crore for agricultural and agri-processed commodities, and Rs 500 crore for all other commodities, SEBI said.
