How can multiple trades for shares transferred to the Zerodha account be added?

The buy average must be entered manually for shares transferred to the Zerodha account. If the transferred shares were purchased over multiple days, add the average price for each trade date separately.

Example Scenario

100 shares of Reliance were bought at ₹1000 on 1/4/2020
200 shares of Reliance were bought at ₹1020 on 2/4/2020

In this case, enter two separate discrepant trades on Console. The buy average price will be calculated automatically. To know the steps to update the buy average, see How to update the buy average on Console?

If shares were purchased in multiple trades on a single day, calculate the average price for the purchases and enter the discrepant quantity on Console.

Example Scenario

100 shares of Reliance were bought at ₹1000 on 1/4/2020
200 shares of Reliance were bought at ₹1020 on 1/4/2020

In this case, enter the quantity as 300 and the price as ₹1013.33[(1000x100 + 1020x200)/300)]

Shares bought and sold on the same day will be considered as intraday trades irrespective of the trades being placed in CNC(long-term) or MIS(intraday) product types.

Example Scenario

100 shares of XYZ for ₹600 on 1st April 2018. On 1st August, it was sold for ₹700. On the same day, they are bought back for ₹690.

As per FIFO:

1/04/2018 - Buy - ₹600
1/08/2018 - Sell - ₹700
1/08/2018 - Buy - ₹690

Since these are T2T shares, this would not be considered an intraday trade. So the new buy average will be Rs 690. To learn more, see What would be the buy average if T2T stocks are sold from the holdings and bought again on the same day?
