    Hi Nithin,

    Please refer to the NSE Holiday List for 2013 at http://www.nseindia.com/products/content/derivatives/irf/mrkt_timing_holidays.htm

    As per this Apr 1 and Apr 11 are Trading Holidays. Or are they not?

    Please confirm.

    Thanks,
    Maddy

    • Madhavan.Ramani says:

      My mistake – the earlier holiday was only for Int Rate Deriv segment. The Equity and FnO segment holidays you have mentioned are correct.

      Sorry for the confusion.

      Thanks,
      Maddy

    I have compiled a calendar on Google Calendar. If anyone using Google Calendar can simply add it from the following link:

    https://www.google.com/calendar/embed?src=r4tffng39qa674ipakpv0gs18s@group.calendar.google.com&ctz=Asia/Calcutta

    @Zerodha Header and footer of Zerodha Z-Connect blog pages should move with page scroll. Their fixed position relative to browser window kind of consumes 20-30% space on small screen devices such as netbooks,11″-13″ notebooks,Tablets.
