Comment on Option Strategy - Zerodha Trader

Hi Zerodha,
I was checking the brokerage calculator and had a question on the brokerage charged for options. If I buy 2 lots of Nifty calls for 25 and sell them for 30, my profit before any charges is 50*(30-25)=Rs. 250.
Taxes will be very low since taxes will applied on the premium. I had assumed the brokerage too would be applied on the premium, and hence would be 0.01%*50*(25+30)=Rs. 0.275. However the calculator is showing a flat charge of Rs. 20 per order, hence a net brokerage of Rs. 40.
How is the brokerage calculated for options?
