States/ Union Territories (UTs) who have carried out three mandatory reforms namely (i) single trading license to be valid across the State (ii) single point levy of market fee across the State and (iii) provision for e-auction / e-trading as a mode of price discovery; are eligible for integrating their wholesale regulated markets with e-NAM platform.
