Churn in S&P BSE Sensex Components
Mar 27, 2018

Consider this...

On average, about 14 Sensex stocks have exited the index every five years, since 1996.

Stocks like Premier Ltd, Hindustan Motors, NOCIL, Mukand, Bombay Dyeing, and MTNL were the biggest blue chips in their heydays.

Where are they now?

Over the years, they've turned into small caps and eventually faded into oblivion.

NIIT Ltd and Ballarpur Industries were Sensex blue chips once. Today, they too are small caps.

Note: The year 1996 witnessed a big churn in the index, when fifteen new companies made it to the Sensex; the above data for churn excludes the cases of ICICI Ltd. being replaced with ICICI Bank in 2002 and Sterlite being replaced with Vedanta in 2013.
