BSE-promoted International Exchange (INX) has crossed the Rs 1,000-crore mark (USD 157 million) in daily trading turnover for the first time.

Total daily trading turnover on the exchange reached this milestone yesterday.

This is the highest daily trading volume recorded by the exchange since inception, accounting for 75 per cent of the total trading volumes in Gift City.

"The increased trading activity is a validation for the new products and initiatives that we are taking for our clientele. We are positive that the trading volumes will only grow higher from here on," INX MD and Chief Executive Officer V Balasubramaniam said in a statement.

An arm of BSE, INX, is the first international exchange from India at International Financial Service Centre (IFSC), International Tech (GIFT).

At present, BSE's India INX and the IFSC are the two exchanges at the IFSC. While India INX went live in January, IFSC started trading in June. These bourses offer trading facilities for 22 hours.

Since inception, BSE's India INX has clocked a trading turnover of USD 8.78 billion.
