Account Opening and Procedures

TradeSmart has simple and transparent brokerage plans for small traders (Value Plan) as well as frequent heavy volume buyers (Power Plan). The first Value Plan is a traditional percentage brokerage plan that charges a fixed 0.007% brokerage fee (Rs. 7 per lot on options trading) from customers on trading in different segments. However, the Power Plan is a modern-age flat brokerage model that facilitates online trading at Rs. 15 flat brokerage charges regardless of the trading volume. The brokerage is even lower than India’s top discount broker – Zerodha and Upstox’s Rs. 20 brokerage plan.
