Why is my MIS or CO position not auto squared off?

Typically, the intra-day auto square off timings are as below:

Particular Equity/Cash
Equity Derivatives Currency Derivatives Commodities
Auto square off time 3:20 PM
3:25 PM
4:45 PM
25 minutes before Close

However, it is important to note that Intraday square off timings can change based on the discretion of our risk management department .

If any intraday position or an MIS trade is not squared off on the same day due to any link or system failure, stocks hitting circuit limits or any risks associated with internet/wireless-based trading which may occur at the end of the Client, Zerodha or the respective exchange, it shall be treated as a Cash and Carry ("CNC") or NRML position and carried forward to the next trading day.

In case of such a situation arising, the onus of squaring off the position will be on the Client. Our RMS desk may at its discretion square off any such position, without the requirement of a margin call, if the needed balance is not available in your trading account.
