Indian ETFs are typically linked either to the major index or normally to gold as an asset class. But today there are a variety of ETFs, as you can see in the table above, that are also having other indices like mid cap indices and sectoral indices as their underlying. You can choose the ETF based on which asset class you want to take an exposure in.
