Paving the way for diamond futures trade, markets regulator Sebi has given in-principle approval to Indian Commodity Exchange (ICEX) for commencement of trading in this contract.

The approval follows diamond being notified as a commodity for derivatives trading by the government earlier last year. ICEX said in a statement it will launch three diamond contracts of 30 cents, 50 cents and 1 carat.

It will also initiate agreements with clearing banks, vaulting companies and grading agencies for launch of diamond contracts. ICEX, where trading was earlier suspended, plans to resume operations in March subject to regulatory approvals.
