How is NEPSE Index Calculated?

M.C. = Market Capitalization.
O. S. = Outstanding

NEPSE Index = (Total Market Capitalization of all the Companies Listed/Total Base Year’s Market Capitalization) *100
NEPSE Index = (187500/157)* 100
NEPSE Index for the time period ‘1’ is 119.43 with reference to the base period ‘0’.
