NEW DELHI, June 23 (Commoditiescontrol) - Markets regulator Sebi may soon allow foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) to participate in the commodity derivatives market.

The Securities & Exchange Board of India (Sebi) this week approached a few large market participants, multinational banks and clearing houses to jointly look into measures for allowing foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) to trade in commodity derivatives listed on local exchanges, Economic Times reported quoting two persons aware of the communication from the regulator.

In its consultation paper, the regulator had earlier suggested that FPIs should be allowed to trade in all non-agricultural commodity derivatives and a few selected broad.

Currently, foreign entities having actual exposure to Indian commodity markets, known as eligible foreign entities (EFEs), are allowed to participate in the Indian commodity derivatives market.
