The first trade was executed by 'East India Securities' and 'Budge Budge Refineries', one of the premier edible oil refiners. Day one recorded trading of more than 4,200 tonnes with turnover exceeding Rs 44.67 crore indicating positive interest of market participants in the CDSO Futures, the statement said.
