Circuit Limits?

I'd like to know about circuit limits for stocks. E.g. Videocon touched upper circuit today.. Now, if the upper circuit is 20% will it automatically or generally be put to 5% the next day by exchange ?

Usually a stock's price band is reduced to 10% if it hits the 20% circuit limit on two consecutive days.

e.g. Hindustan Copper today has a price band of 10%. It had hit the 20% limit both on Friday and Monday.

That's nice info, thank you, also, is this circuit breaker details available on the website? Further, is there anything like if this stock had traded at 15% (below 20%) for more than half an hour, 20% is further extensible?

I don't think there are any exceptions to the rule.

Two consecutive 20% circuits always lead to reduction in the price band.

NSE's site has all the information that you need.

There is a list of price bands for all listed stocks.

There is also a separate list of changes in price bands that will be applicable from the next trading day.
