How are the stocks chosen?
For inclusion, "the security should have traded at an average impact cost of 0.50 percent or less during the last six months for 90 percent of the observations for a basket size of Rs. 2 crore," as per NSE norms.
A firm coming out with an IPO is also eligible if it meets the eligibility criteria. Its period has been shortened to 3 months.

A stock gets replaced due to either of these two reasons - because of mandatory changes, like corporate actions, delisting and such factors, or when there is a better candidate available to take its place in the index.
However, it's not necessarily a bad thing. If a company manages to perform well again and fulfills inclusion norms, it gets reinstated back into the index.
