Common questions regarding your funds

After I sell a stock, why don’t I get to use 100% of it?

From 1st December 2020, SEBI peak margin rules have changed the way sell amounts get credited to you. As per this, 80% of the sell amount is available for trading on the same day. And 100% of the sell amount will be available for withdrawal from T+2 days onwards. To know more on the impact of SEBI’s peak margin rules, click here.

Why is my fund balance lesser than what I expected?

Your fund balance could be lesser than what you expect it to be because of multiple reasons such as maintenance charges, taxes, quarterly settlement/retention and more. To know about these in detail, click here.

Why am I charged for equity delivery?

We follow a pay-per-use model. We only charge a minimal brokerage up to ₹20 when you place a trade. To know more, click here.

Where can I see all charges that are deducted?

Whenever you trade, you need to check the order details or contract note to know how much amount will be credited or debited from your account. Contract note or order details can be checked under Ledger report or directly in the Bill report. To know how to access your ledger, click here and to know how to read a ledger, click here.

What is a margin?

Margin is the amount the broker provides over and above your available purchasing power. Many times, the terms "margin" and "exposure" are used interchangeably. If a broker is providing "2x exposure", that is the same as saying that the broker is providing "50% margin". To know more on Margin, click here.
