How can I identify when my contract expires?

Typically, derivative contracts which expire in the current month of trading are called ‘Near’ month contracts, those which expire next month are called ‘Next’ month contracts and those which expire the month after next are called ‘Far’ month contracts.

Also, the expiry of contracts is included in the scrip name in an abbreviated form. For instance, NSE:NIFTY19NOV11500PE here, November 2019 is the expiry of the contract along with the underlying and strike price.
