India VIX indicates the investor’s perception of the market’s volatility over the next 30 calendar days. Higher the India VIX values, higher is the expected volatility. The ‘India VIX’ is computed using “the best bid and ask quote of the out-of-the-money near and mid-month NIFTY options contracts which are traded on the futures and options segment of NSE”.
