Comment on Policy on settlement of compulsory delivery derivative contracts — Update Oct 2019

Zerodha is charging brokerage on delivery resulting from options assignment. This is unfair. Other brokers like Interactive Broker (I traded with them for several years) don’t charge it. Why I need to pay brokerage if I didn’t post any order. The process is of assignment is autoexecuted at exchange, so why Zerodha charging brokarage for the same?

Zerodha says – “Since there is a substantial increase in effort and risk to settle these F&O positions resulting in physical delivery, a brokerage of 0.25% of the physically settled value will be charged. For all netted-off positions(spread contracts, iron condor, etc), the brokerage will be charged at 0.1% of the physically settled value.”

This is not acceptable. Zerodha is not doing anything for these settlement, why should they charge brokerage?
