The sixth-largest IT company LTIMindtree will replace HDFC in Nifty-50 index on July 13.

The decision to this effect was taken at the board meeting of Index Maintenance sub-committee (Equity) of NSE Indices on Tuesday, following the proposed merger of HDFC with HDFC Bank. The changes will be effective from July 13, said NSE.

Currently, LTIMindtree is part of Nifty Next50 index. From July 13, Jindal Steel and Power will take its place in Nifty Next 50.

HDFC Bank has successfully completed the merger of HDFC with itself on July 1, after getting all requisite shareholder and regulatory approvals. However, it has fixed July 13 as the record date for the share-swap between HDFC Bank and HDFC as part of the merger.
