Leading stock exchange BSE has revised the circuit limit of Jio Financial Services, the demerged non-banking financial services unit of Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance group, to 20 per cent from the existing 5 per cent.

The new limits will be effective from Monday, September 4, according to a notification issued by BSE.

The move would ensure stock prices do not fluctuate beyond a prescribed level during a session.
