90.1. Trade Smart Online  May 13, 2015 10:04:54 AM IST | 

Hello Arshveer,
There are no specific conditions required to trade in FNO segment. You just need to have FNO segment active and you need to maintain specified margin for the stock in which you trade. Please refer the link for scrip wise margin required to trade in FNO.

Hello Anu,
A1. Demat transaction charge is charged when you sell delivery shares. Applicable only on sell. It is Rs.15 plus service tax for one scrip on which date you sell.
A2. Sorry, currently we do not provide pledge in & out facility.

Hello Amit,
A1. Per executed order mean brokerage is charged on executed order and not on pending or cancelled orders.

A2. If the order executes in 4 different trades then also it will be considered as single order, not 4 orders and you will be charged Rs.15/order.

A3. Only one order.

Please note Trade Smart Online states their brokerage is Re 15/order however there are hidden charges.
They charge an additional 15/scrip on a sale transaction, hence the effective charge comes to around 17.5 per order for a buy-sell pair.


On calling them, the expected response was received, which is a characteristic of hidden charges "It is a part of your contract, please see your contract".

On questioning further, they agreed that it is not shown in the online brokerage calculator (which goes to the extent of showing, STT, Turnover Charges, Service Tax,Edu. Cess & Higher Edu. Cess, SEBI Fee etc.) but stated that this is a SEBI charge, hence not shown.

I checked NSE website for other charges, it doesnt state any other charge besides SEBI Turnover, Stamp Duty, Service Tax and STT.

Its strange that in this day and age, businesses expect to be successful with such petty cons.

Happy to provide supporting evidence to the above facts.

Effective buy and sell charge is 22.5.

15 + 15 + 15 = 45 for 2 transactions - buy and sell.

Hello Parag Seth,

We are sorry to know you were not aware of these charges. We try our best to keep everything transparent and we''ll see if there''s some other place we should mention these charges.

Actually, Rs 15 per scrip selling in delivery is a demat transaction charge. The brokerage calculator displays charges related to trading only. Our list of charges which includes these charges can be found at the below url:

Demat transaction charges are charged by the company where you hold your demat account. In this case since the demat account is also with us, this charge is being levied by us.

You''ll find these charges are charged by all brokers. Most of them will bill you at the end of the month for the same. We apply these charges on the date of the transaction itself to be more transparent and keep things easier for you to track .

In case you have any other questions please do let us know.

hey, I am your new customer and I done a transaction using your payment getaway facility in NEST browser from my sbi account,but I got the amount after 3 hours and not into my equity account, but that into my commodity account, after contacting your customer support so many times I got that in equity in form of margins. But till that time the price of "Bajaj Hind" was gone up at 18.90, and due to the same, I have to have loss of six hundred rupees, and I was expecting a gain of about one thousand rupees (If everything goes perfect from your side).
Also at the end of the day, I attempted to log in, but I was failed more then a dozen time, and I don''t know why.
So, I really do not have a pleasant experience of trading with trade smart online.

Hello Shiva,

Apologize for the delay from our side in providing the limit.

Sometime it could happen that due to connectivity issues the payment does not reflect immediately. However, that''s something rare and does not happen often.

Why the limit got assigned to commodities was due to some bug and we are following up with the vendor on the same.
