Also, the exchange said it executed deliveries of silver based on London Bullion Market Association (LBMA) standards under the 'Options in Goods' segment. Earlier, BSE used to accept only serial-numbered gold bars approved by the LBMA for the settlement of gold contracts exchanged on its commodity derivatives segment.

"The deliveries and acceptance of Indian refined gold will facilitate greater participation and widen the array of acceptable gold provided by members for delivery of bullion on commodity derivatives segment of BSE," the exchange's Chief Business Officer Sameer Patil said. BSE said its seamless trading platform, integrated with a robust delivery framework for 'options in goods' contracts have proved extremely beneficial and cost efficient for jewellers, bullion dealers and other physical market participants.

It empowers them to not only hedge their price risk but also avail delivery on expiry of the contract.
