Why Jignesh Shah had to resign from MCX-SX ?
Jignesh Shah had to force resign as the MCX board members wanted to insulate the MCX-SX (the commodity futures exchange) from the ongoing settlement crisis at NSEL. The Forward Markets Commission (India) (the commodities market regulator of India) has pressed multiple charges against NSEL directors, including Jignesh Shah, for allegedly perpetrating the Rs.5,600 crore settlement fraud and conspiring to cheat investors intentionally.
