3) Nifty 50 Net Total Return (NTR): reflects the price performance of the index, plus the net amount of all dividends (both special and regular) and gains from bonus issue after deducting withholding tax and capital gains tax respectively

The new indices are expected to attract international investors looking to invest in Indian equity market.
