“In the event of a market trend in either direction, the dynamic price bands may be relaxed during the day in co-ordination with the other exchange,” said circulars issued by both the BSE and the National Stock Exchange (NSE).

The revision in operating ranges are for no band securities and stocks futures. In the event of a market trend in either direction, the dynamic price bands may be relaxed during the day in co-ordination with the other Exchange.

The results will be declared on 16 May 2014 after which India will get a new government. The term of the current Lok Sabha expires on 1 June and the new House has to be constituted by 31 May.
