What are takeovers?

A takeover is a corporate action where one company (the acquirer) aims to gain control of another (the target). This is often done through a tender offer, where the acquirer proposes a fixed price to buy shares from the target company's shareholders. To learn how to apply for a takeover, see How to apply for buybacks, takeovers and delistings at Zerodha?

The charge for applying for a takeover is ₹20 + 18% GST per order. These charges are non-refundable regardless of whether the order is accepted, rejected, or failed. If multiple orders are placed, charges apply to each order. Statutory charges are also applicable.
