What is the difference between "turnover" and "premium turnover" ?

The key to understand this is to look at that * and ** at the bottom of the table.

* means notional turnover
** means premium turnover

1) Notional turnover is calculated as strike price + option premium * lot size
Eg. from you data table using record of 2-Apr-18:
this is (10700 + ATP) * Total contracts traded
so say on that day you bought 1 lot for inr. 12, then,
your notional turnover is : (10700 + 12) * 75 = inr. 9.63L

2. Premium turnover
This is a simple way of calculating what you would actually
inr. 12*75 = inr. 900

Now you can see how bloated the notional TO really appears. That's why NSE has been criticized when Daily F&O values are released
bcos it looks like huge Trx have taken place when they haven't.

Since the criticism, you can read the line in ** wef 2015.....
which means that two values are reported and that is Premium TO using the calculation explained above.

Does one participant close his trade after that premium tunrover gets count or naked buy/sell trade also gets count in premium turnover?!
turnover means both buy and sell.
when you buy, the premium is added and when you sell the premium is again added.
