Alternate (cheap) Option for Regular Traders: By trading with a discounts dealer like Zerodha, which charges a permanent dealer, you may save an enormous brokerage. Regardless of your trading volume, Zerodha charges flat Rs 20 per trade. This implies, even on deals with a volume of crores, you would pay flat Rs 20. No delivery brokerage.
