The flexibility to fix transaction charges has sparked a fight among the futures exchanges to grab market share, a majority held by the Multi Commodity Exchange (MCX).

The exchanges have started working on reducing the charges on non-agricultural commodities contracts like and energy’s that are cash settled and non-deliverable. Most important, these are 86 per cent of the accumulative turnover of all exchanges. The accounts for 90 per cent of the turnover in this segment.

The commodities markets regulator, Forward Markets Commission, on February 13 allowed different transaction fees on metals and energy’s contracts. The is understood to have asked exchanges to implement reduced charges for incremental volumes.

Also, the difference between the higher and lower slab should not be 50 per cent more than the lower one. Samir Shah, managing director and chief executive officer (CEO), National Commodity and Derivatives Exchange (NCDEX), said, “We are reviewing our turnover charges further and will be formulating plans soon.”

“Most competition would be between the MCX and NCDEX,” said Ashok Mittal, CEO, Emkay Commotrade. Smaller ones like Derivatives and Commodity Exchange, anchored by the Kotak group, are preparing to be competitive. “We  will follow the competition according to a suitable time,” said Dilip Bhatia, CEO of Ace.
