Introducing Zerodha’s New Support Portal

March 20, 2018
Search for any support issues you have


As you know, we have grown exponentially over the last 2 years, and have still strived to provide the best possible support experience. We’ve observed that when it comes to the large volumes of support queries we receive every day:

  1. Most support queries are repetitive in nature and in fact have answers already available.
  2. These answers are spread out across Z-Connect, Varsity, or TradingQ&A, making it not very straightforward for clients to find.
  3. Often, queries pertaining to specific aspects of an account (for example, a particular order) do not come with the necessary information (eg: order ID) for our support team to process. This results in a lot of back and forth e-mails significantly delaying query resolution.

To address this issue, we’ve built an all-new support system – Zerodha Support – a manually curated and actively maintained knowledge-base of information, questions and answers pertaining to all aspects of Zerodha, from account opening to trading. In addition, we’ve focused extensively on making these answers discoverable through an intelligent search system. If you’re still unable to find an answer to your query on the Support Portal, you can create a support ticket and track it right from there. The new ticket interface automatically pulls information from your account (orders, holdings, positions etc.) and let’s you pin point the exact issue while writing your query, saving you significant amounts of time. This is a much better and smooth experience than writing e-mails directly to our support e-mail address.

Comprehensive Knowledge Base

With over 400+ topics across 6 broad categories that are updated regularly, the portal has everything you need to know about trading at Zerodha.


Intelligent search

We’ve put in a lot of effort to make the content discoverable through an intelligent search system.

Intelligent search

Contextual ticket creation

In the unlikely event that you don’t find a solution to your query, you can create a ticket from a topic specific to your query. Not just that; with the hooks we’ve implemented in the portal you can even select a specific transaction or entry (orders, holdings or positions) that you’re facing an issue with when creating a ticket.

Let’s say for example your order was rejected and you couldn’t find the reason, you can create a ticket by selecting the rejected order as shown in these screenshots. This ensures that your tickets are assigned to the appropriate teams and comes with enough contextual information, thus ensuring a quicker resolution.

Search for a topic

Select orders, positions or holdings to specify your issue.

Track all your tickets easily

If you have multiple tickets you can track their progress easily from your dashboard.

Track all your tickets from your dashboard.

View responses to your tickets

Next time you have a query, instead of sending an email (we will soon stop accepting emails on support[at] head to the all-new Zerodha Support Portal!

Happy Trading

    congratulation zerodha …great work

  8. A.P says:

    Good upgrade, How come my ticket was closed after 3 useless replies and the problem still persists ?

    When checked from a tech background, follow up after fixing the issue seems not so important to the support team. Please do something about it if this comments section is a better way to deal with overlooked tickets.

  10. Tuhin Chatterjee says:

    It really sounds good and should prove to be very effective. I would request the team to introduce an “alarm” facility on the Kite-3 trading platform so that we can get pop-up notifications when the price of a particular stock(s) arrive at a certain price level or about to arrive. Your effort to this effect would be highly appreciated.

  12. KULDEEP CHAND says:

    Please! Add 2H, 3H and 4H Chart in KITE Platform. I can use 4H Chart in Kite but 2H and 3H is not available and just for these Timeframes, I use Sharekhan’s TradeTiger.

    Why not just create a way to specify CUSTOM TIME in Kite so that chart could be generated on the basis of CUSTOM TIMEFRAME as is in Sharekhan’s TradTiger.

  13. Ragul says:

    Amongst many discount brokers out there…Zerodha is a well known name. Please stop blocking the scripts during live trading hours.

    If you are taking the comments seriously…Please avoid such things

    I had posted a fund withdrawal request on 23/03/2018.
    Sent a mail at zerodha support and a ticket was opened.
    Request did not get processed on Friday or Monday and not even Tuesday.
    Called several times but only got fake promises from zerodha support team.

    Helpline numbers do not work after 7 PM although it is claimed to be working till 11 PM

    Such a harassment from zerodha.

    Hi Nithin,

    I raised a ticket (#20180321775351) on 21st March, 2018 about STT being levied while buying ETFs.
    I haven’t received any acknowledgement/resolution till now.
    Request you to look into the issue.

    Best Regards,

    • Matti says:

      Will have this checked.

      • Meher says:

        Hi Matti,

        The ticket was closed by the support by saying the following:
        “Thank you for writing to Zerodha.
        We have reported this we will check and get this reversed if its charged wrongly.”

        It’s been about a month that I raise the ticket. How much time do you need to check? And what do you mean by “if its charged wrongly”?
        I have reported an issue with your software and the least your team could have done is to properly investigate it.
        Why would you close the ticket without solving the issue?

  23. Rohit Tewari says:

  32. Gopal Bandaru says:

    U are doing good job between 9 am to 5 pm. But Commodities also in your platform. after 5 pm no person will co-operate in commodity trading. U r staff replying commodities are no way connecting to me, it deals by only in Bangalore branch. in that also the system is not responding in proper way. in the night also if one person will co-operates in that segment, 100% U r services will be very great and automatically Ur platform will also bags first place in the country. Please appoint one person to support for commodities in odd hours, especially for new members.

  33. Ramesh Sehgal says:

    Tax P&L report does not have the dates of purchase and sale ,it is being demanded by CA can you have it included in the report

  34. Abhijeet kumar says:

  35. Subhasmita says:

    Is there any technical problem today. I can not log in my account.

    • Matti says:

      Due to a connectivity issue, you may face an issue with logging into Kite. We are looking into this and should have this resolved shortly. You can login to Pi. You can call us or write to us in the meanwhile to place orders. Apologies for the inconvenience.

  36. Debasish tripathy says:

    I have some queries regarding POA and Nominee forms. Is the costumer help center available on Saturday and Sunday?

  37. Rathnakara Hande says:

    I am extremely unhappy to mention that the support group has become inefficient and insensitive. Fund transferred late in the night is not updated, in commodity account, causing auto placing of orders, resulting in loss to your customers. Telephone calls are answered with a prerecorded message that the services are not available. Even on the next day the account is yet to be updated. I am seriously worried. Hope you consider support issues related to fund transfers a higher priority.

  38. Rajesh Chaudhary says:

    In future trading today I was holding Tata Steel lot which I sell, during selling error occurred and had asked me to retry. I had tried again and sell it.
    2 lot have been sold and in my summary -1200 is reflected.
    Also in fund section exposure and span some amount is reflecting.
    Please call me and let me know line of action.

  39. Jai Singh says:


    I’m using Zerodha since last 6 months and I’m facing few issues with your technical charts and I’m listing them here for your reference.

    1. If we open 2 or 4 charts window in Google Chrome or Firefox it doesn’t display the toolbars for charting options i.e. minutes options, views, displays, studies etc. These option only work in Internet Explorer. Is it possible that you make changes in your software and these options start working in Google Chrome and Firefox as well.

    2. Although the above mentioned options work in Internet Explorer but when I want to add some trend line or any other drawing tools in chart it doesn’t allow me to do that because the moment I take my cursor on chart area, it start showing the studies which I’ve added to my charts and it highlights the area infront of those studies and thus my cursor won’t allow me to add trend lines etc. For e.g if some moving averages are included in my chart and I start to draw a trend line it shows the moving average row in chart area and that area gets highlighted.

    3. I’ve noticed it numerous times that (in Zerodha Web Kite portal) some candles does not show the entire price action covered by the candle in live charts and once I change it 2-3 times to different time frames than it shows the full price action area covered by it (I’m not talking about gap down and gap up opening). This problem is not there in your PI software.

    4. Another issue which I face is that sometimes your chart stops refreshing and then I’ve to refresh them by pressing the refresh option provided in charting software. I wonder why sometime auto refresh option work and another time it won’t.

    5. Last issue which I want to highlight is that when I open a technical chart at market open i.e. at 9:15 am and if the chart is set for 3 minute or higher time frames then candles don’t start forming in these times frames instead charts start moving forward with dots. To avoid this I’ve to first open the chart in 1 minute time frame and after 2-3 minutes I change it to the desired time frame.

    I hope these issues are not faced by me alone and further I would like to apprise you that I don’t have connectivity issues and thus you can’t attribute it to my net connection.

    Looking forward to the eagerness of your technical team to resolve these issues on priority basis. I hope you’ll not ask me to raise these issues with your support team and if it is to be raised with your support team then I would appreciate if you could directly forward these issues to your support team and it will be taken more seriously if you forward it to your support team.

    Jai Singh

    I have placed a complaint in zerodha support since no one contacted me.when i am trying to call it is getting busy.please solve the issue

  41. Rajesh Mittal says:

    Hi Nitin sir
    I have been with zerodha since nov 17. My querry is only a general querry. In the Backoffice platform in the ledger section credit entries do not seem proper e.g i sold cadila health care equity shares 125 nos on 20.06.18 at higher rate, but credit amount was not showing in the ledger. Secondly in the margin statement , every time under MF segment an amount -967.94/-(Negative) is shown which is reduced from my margin available amount. Why it is so? Please refer to my Margin statement sent to me on 20.06.18, 27.06.18. Nothing is due from my side towards MF segment then why available margin amount is shown less after deducting Rs 967.94
    Please do reply as i am not satisfied with this.
    Thanks and regards
    Rajesh Mittal

  43. Seshendra says:

    I have submitted all necessary documents on June 21, 2018 for re-opening of demat account with Zerodha. I was told that the account was active. When I took the CMR copy to transfer my shares from another demat account, I found that my account status is closed – raised this issue on July 11. Today is July 13 and still no closure on the issue.

    I’ve been calling the customer care for the past 3 days and everyday I am being promised that it would be resolved on that particular day. When will it be resolved?

    Hoping that at least through this comment my issue would be resolved.
