Shri Radha Mohan Singh, Hon’ble Union Agriculture Minister; Mr. Santosh Gangwar, Hon’ble MOS for Finance; Mr. Ajay Tyagi, Chairman, SEBI, were present among other dignitaries at the event.

MCX continues to traverse the growth path. During 2016–17 (Apr-Feb), the average daily turnover in 2016–17 stood at Rs 22,892 crore, up 5% year-on-year (y-o-y). The major contributors to this growth were base metals and bullion; base metals pitched in with Rs. 6,713 crore (up 13.8% y-o-y), and bullion added Rs. 8,133 crore (up 3.1% y-o-y).
On winning the award Mrugank Paranjape, MD & CEO, MCX, said, “We thank CPAI for bestowing this honour upon us. Given volatile market conditions globally, risk management continues to be more important than ever, and we are pleased to facilitate that for the market participants in India with a wide array of products across bullion, base metals, energy, and agri segments.”

Going forward, as the largest commodity exchange in India, we endeavor to raise the bar and introduce new products in the near future, to meet the needs of our diverse market participant base”, he stated.
Speaking on the occasion Shiv Kumar Goel, National President, CPAI said, "I congratulate MCX on winning the Best Exchange award under the category Bullion & Base Metals, and for its great work in developing the Indian Commodity Market.
