Revision in Options Brokerage
Dear Sir/Madam,
We write to inform you of the recent changes introduced by SEBI vide their circular no. CIR/MRD/DP/14/2015 dated July 13, 2015 wherein they have increased the minimum contract size in equity derivatives segment from the existing Rs. 2 Lacs to Rs. 5 Lacs and the Lot Size of Nifty has increased from 25 to 75, w. e. f. November 2015 expiry.

Currently in the case of option contracts, we charge brokerage on per lot basis and / or on a percentage of the premium traded, subject to the brokerage restrictions specified under Exchange /SEBI guidelines. Going forward, due to increase in the lot size of the option contracts, the brokerage charged to you on a per lot basis will increase to 2.5 times of the existing brokerage rate per lot for all option contract of Equity derivatives segment for all contracts with November expiry and onwards.

For example, suppose currently per lot brokerage charged to you on option contract is Rs. 50, after the increase, the brokerage on a per lot basis will become Rs. 125 (50*2.5). However, the increased rate also would be subject to the restrictions of the SEBI/Exchanges guidelines applicable from time to time.

There will be no change in brokerage rates in the Cash & Future segment.
