The technical glitch at National Stock Exchange has cost us immensely, Sitharaman had said at the 45th Civil Accounts Day. The statement came after NSE trading halted on February 24 for nearly four hours causing panic among traders and investors.
The NSE in its statement had said the halt happened due to the unavailability of the online risk management system owing to unstable telecom links.
"While there was no impact on the trading system, the instability of telecom links mentioned above resulted in an impact to the online risk management system of NSE Clearing and other systems. Critical systems such as the risk management system are configured with redundancies such that there is no single point of failure," NSE had said.
Market regulator securities and exchange board of India (SEBI) in a separate statement, issued last week, had asked NSE to explain the reasons for trading not migrating to the disaster recovery site. It also advised the exchange to conduct the root cause analysis of the trading halt.
This week HDFC Securities had tweeted that it had blocked trading in NSE cash on account of technical glitch. On this, NSE issued clarification saying all the operations on its platforms were functioning smooth and normal. BSE also said all its segments were working fine.
