The largest commodity exchange in diamond futures trading has seen a steady increase in turnover from Rs 1,090 crore logged last September to a high of Rs 5,332 crore in February. Nearly 85% of the turnover generated in February was attributed to trading in diamond futures contracts, which were launched on the platform in August 2017.
