Bombay Stock Exchange Limited constructed a new index, christened BSE-500, consisting of 500 scrips w.e.f. August 9, 1999. The changing pattern of the economy and that of the market were kept in mind while constructing this index.

BSE-500 index represents nearly 93% of the total market capitalization on BSE. BSE-500 covers all 20 major industries of the economy. In line with other BSE indices, effective August 16, 2005 calculation methodology was shifted to the free-float methodology.

Selection of the Base Year and Base Index Value:
The base date was fixed after a detailed analysis of the relative volatility of BSE-200, the index closest to BSE-500, over the last 8 years. The coefficient of variation of BSE-200 for 1998-99 was one of the lowest in this period. Hence, 1998-99 was chosen as the base year, and within this, February 1, 1999 was selected as the base date for its proximity to the current period. The base value was fixed at 1000 points in order to keep the index comparable with other similar indices.

  • The scrip should have been traded on 75% of the trading days in the last three months.
  • Rank all companies on average full market capitalisation, average free-float market capitalisation and average turnover for preceding 3 months
  • Calculate final rank giving weightage of 75% to rank on market cap. (full & free-float separately) and 25% to rank on turnover
  • Calculate combined final rank by taking summation of final rank based on full & free-float market capitalization
  • Exclude all companies with final rank beyond 550 based on full & free-float market capitalization
  • Include all companies with (a) FF final rank and Full final rank within 500; and (b) superior combined final rank to the extent of total exclusions
  • In case of any short-fall for inclusion, select companies with (a) FF final rank and combined final rank within 500; and (b) superior combined final rank
  • In case of further short-fall for inclusion, select companies with (a) Full final rank and Combined final rank within 500; and (b) superior combined final rank
  • Any further short-fall shall be filled-up by including companies based on combined final rank
