The word ‘indices’ is the plural for ‘index’. In other words, Nifty 50 is called an ‘index’, whereas Nifty 50 and Sensex together are called ‘indices’.

‘Indices’ and ‘Indexes’ mean the same.

‘Indices’ is the more popular term, which is used commonly on business channels and websites.

Moving on, just like Sensex and Nifty50 are the main stock market indices of India, other countries also have their own indices.

The United States of America has Dow Jones, S&P 500, Nasdaq 100 and many more.

France has CAC40, Australia has S&P ASX 20.
