What is withdrawable balance?
Available balance is the funds that can be used to trade with. Withdrawal balance is the funds that can be withdrawn back to your bank account.
To know how your withdrawable balance is arrived at, it is important to know that,
Funds from stock holdings sold, and intraday equity profits get added to withdrawal balance after 2 days. F&O profits and funds from F&O positions exited will get added to withdrawal balance after 1 day. This is because exchanges in India follow a rolling settlement cycle. Check this article for more.
