Jignesh Shah, founder, vice-chairman and a Director of Multi-Commodity Exchange (MCX), resigned from the board on 31 October 2013.

The commodity exchange regulator, Forward Markets Commission (FMC), had issued show-cause notices to Jignesh Shah; former Managing Director and CEO of MCX Shreekant Javalgekar; and another board member Joseph Massey on 4 October 2013 questioning their fit and proper status to operate MCX. Shreekant Javalgekar and Massey have already resigned from the MCX board.

The MCX was promoted by Jignesh Shah-led Financial Technologies India Ltd (FTIL), which is also promoted the now-defunct National Spot Exchange Ltd (NSEL). (MCX is 26 percent owned by Financial Technologies, of which Jignesh Shah is founder, chairman and CEO).
