Besides the well-established fact towards the requirement of market based instrument, there is always been a doubt, as expressed by different bodies, on the usefulness and suitability of futures contract in developing the underlying agricultural commodity market, especially in agricultural based economy like India. Therefore, an attempt has been made to re-validate the impact of futures trading on agricultural commodity market in India. The daily price information in spot and futures markets, for a period of 7 years (2004 – 2010), for 9 major agricultural commodities, taken from different categories of Agri-products, are incorporated into various econometric models to test the concerned objective. Like most of the other studies undertaken on world and Indian commodity market, the present study have also exhibited that even though the inflationary pressure on commodity, especially agricultural commodity, prices have gone up sharply after the introduction of commodity futures contracts, the destabilizing effect of the futures contract is casual in nature and tends to vary over a long period of time. The empirical findings significantly shows that comparative advantage of futures market in disseminating information, leading to a significant price discovery and risk management, that can again help to successfully develop the underlying commodity market in India. Therefore instead of curbing the commodity futures market, it can always be suggested to strengthen the market structure to achieve the broader target.
