Yes, the exchange does offer trading in weekly options only on the Bank Nifty and it is quite popular on the stock exchanges. Monthly call options are the normal options that expire on the last Thursday of the month which are popularly trading. Recently, SEBI and the exchanges introduced a new product called weekly options specifically with respect to Bank Nifty. The idea was to reduce the risk of options by making the expiry each week. These weekly options have attracted quite a bit of interest from traders in the recent past. Weekly options having a lower time to expiry priced low and is hence more affordable to all kinds of traders.
