      You can buy “Bharat 22 ETF” like you buy any stocks. Its symbol is “ICICIB22”. Just search and keep it in your portfolio.
      You can invest in NiftyBees and GoldBees that are another good ETFs and are also a benchmark ETF.
      Instead of buying Nifty Future, it is better for you to focus on NiftyBees.
