So after this month's expiry, the spot price will automatically reduce to account for above.. and that is factored in in next future's price. Am I correct ?

FUT-NIITEC-26-Sep-2019750
FUTURE: 1,372.00
SPOT PRICE 1,490.80

Excellent arbitrage opportunity for the NIIT shareholders, isn't it ?

I almost feel like buying the future but holding-off with all this ESOP and open offers. I have not experienced this before.

If you have the shares, then yes, you can sell now and buy the futures.

The stock price will come down as and when the unaccepted shares come back into the market.

So the Future price caught up well with the SPOT. I didn't benefit. Sometimes one should not think much and just go with the instincts :)
