India is among the apex producers of a number of commodities and has a long history of trading in commodity derivatives. The Indian commodity futures landscape has been evolving and the national level multi–commodity futures exchanges have made a big headway since their inception. Trading volumes of commodity futures taken as a whole have risen at a compounded annual growth rate of 58 per cent between FY 2004–05 and FY 2012–13. Indian commodity futures volume has increased exponentially from Rs.1.29 lakh crore in 2003–04 to Rs.101.44 lakh crore in FY 2013–14. This year will be a year of new products, new services like the proposed WDRA regulated Repository and new market participants whole continuing on the path of strengthening risk management, surveillance and warehousing.
Commodity derivatives have a significant role in the price risk management process especially in case of India being an agricultural dominated economy. The Indian commodity derivatives market has already unleashed forces to bring about institutional changes in marketing practices but it is imperative to bring the sizeable section of the population, rendered vulnerable by price volatility of commodities, under the umbrella of benefits of the market. Therefore, regulatory framework needs to permit diverse stakeholder groups to participate in commodities derivatives market to attain its full potential in terms of growth and inclusiveness. Improvement and upgrading of support services such as warehousing infrastructure, testing facilities, demat trading, grading system, and credit finance are integral to the holistic development of the commodity market. Reduction in cost by abolishing CTT and other administrative costs may be ideal for bringing back the volumes in this market.
