Comment on Is fractional share investing possible in India?

Yes, that could mean that the order might/might not be routed through an exchange. But the broker themselves is not the counterparty but they instead go to a Market Maker. (A market maker is ready to be counter party to all trades, i.e they will buy and sell all shares at market price and they charge a fee/commission for their services.) For the second question, they buy the share and then offer it to customers for fractional ownership. The remaining part which is not yet purchased by customers continues to be owned by the Brokers. (An example for this has been given in the article)
