Apart from the S&P BSE Sensex, changes were also made to another 14 indices, which includes S&P BSE 500, S&P BSE 200 and S&P BSE 100.

The changes could have been prompted by the fall in the market capitalisation of the stocks which were removed.

“With exchange-traded funds benchmarking to Nifty-based indices, where these stocks are already present, I don’t expect any major liquidity-based ETF flows into these stocks,” Vinay Pandit, head — Institutional Equities, IndiaNivesh Securities, said.

In the past few months, Tata Motors has been downgraded by rating agencies amid slowing sales in China and Europe. Brexit-related uncertainty is expected to continue to impact JLR’s performance and these near-term pressures could result in a further weakening of JLR’s sales volumes and thus, profitability.
