Published: August 13, 2020 at 4:20 pm

List of Nifty Next 50 stocks with index weightage and market capitalization are tabulated for August 2020. These are 50 companies from NIFTY 100 after excluding the NIFTY 50 companies representing about 10-11% of the free-float market capitalization of the stocks listed on NSE.

To be included in the Nifty Next 50, a stock must be part if the Nifty 100 index and in turn the NIfty 500 index. A Stock will be included in the Nifty 100 (primary criterion) if it is among the top 90 in terms of full market capitalisation.

It will also be included if its full market capitalisation is 1.50 times of the last constituent in NIFTY 100. Stocks will be removed from the NIfty 100 if their rank based on full market capitalisation falls below 110 or if it is removed from the NIFTY
500. The index has a base date of Jan 1st 1997, and a base value of 1000

Nifty Next 50 Calculation

From May 4th 2009, the index was created using the float-adjusted market capitalization-weighted method. This is computed by multiplying the market capitalization with an investible weight factor (IWF). The IWF is a measure of shares that are freely available for trading.

IWF = [Total Shares– (A+B +C +D +E +F)] /Total Shares


  • A= Shareholding of promoter and promoter group
  • B= Government holding in the capacity of a strategic investor
  • C= Shares held by promoters through ADR/GDRs.
  • D= Equity held by associate/group companies (cross-holdings)
  • E= Employee Welfare Trusts
  • F= Shares under lock-in category

Market Capitalization = Shares outstanding X Price
Free Float Market Capitalization = Market Capitalization X IWF

The level of the Index reflects the total market value of all the stocks in the Index relative to the base period Jan 1st, 1997
Index Value = (Current Market Value / Base Market Capital )* Base Index Value

Here: Base Market Capital: Rs 0.43 trillion and Base Index Value: 1000. In comparison, The base capital of Nifty 50 is Rs 2.06 trillion.

Stocks with the highest free-float market cap have the highest weight in the index.

Index Level= SUM of (Price ×Free Float Market Capitalization)​/Divisor

The SUM is carried out over all the 50 stocks. The divisor is proprietary to the NSE tacking corporate actions into account and changes each time a stock is replaced.
