  • The onus of squaring off open intraday positions is on the client. And auto square-off charges of Rs 50(+GST) apply for each order squared-off by our system. Hence it is recommended that you close your open intraday positions before the square off time.
  • You will not be able to place fresh orders for MIS/CO order types or convert your existing CNC/NRML position to MIS after the auto square off time.
