The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) has reverted back to normal trading timings in markets regulated by it, according to an official statement. The trading in RBI-regulated markets, which includes the money market, will start from the pre-pandemic timing of 9 am.

Subsequently, with abatement of operational constraints, the trading hours were partially restored with effect from November 9, 2020," the RBI said.

"With the substantial easing of restrictions on the movement of people and functioning of offices, it has now been decided to restore the opening time for regulated financial markets to their pre-pandemic timing of 9:00 am," it said.
