Did you know?

  • Except for the equity delivery charge, the brokerage for a trust account is the same as an individual account. However, account opening charges are higher due to higher compliance costs.
  • A brokerage of ₹40 per executed order will be charged instead of ₹20 while placing an F&O order if the Zerodha account has a negative balance.
