* During market trading hours, as traded values are not available on a real time basis, an approximation is done. The traded value is calculated as follows, using the last traded price:
Traded Value (Rs. cr) = (Last Price * Volume) /100,00,000 
This value will be updated with the actual figures, once trading closes and end-of-day data is available.
