Demat transaction charge (DTC) is charges only on delivery sell side and not while buying. You will be charged Rs.15 plus GST (Goods & service Tax) for each scrip, per day on date of selling whenever you sell a scrip on a delivery basis.

Ex: You are selling delivery shares of SBI 100 qty on Monday at 10am, 50 qty at 11am, 10 qty at 2pm. You will be charged Rs.15+ GST of DTC for SBI scrip. On the same day if you sell any other stock with any quantity, you will be charged again Rs.15 DTC. Totally, you sold 2 stocks(scrips) on a given day, hence you are required to pay Rs.30 for that day.

    But if I buy a share of, suppose, ₹16 and sell at ₹20. Will I need to pay ₹18(approx DTC)?
    And per scrip means, per lot or per share?
    If I have 200 Shares and I sell them in one go, will I be charged ₹200*18 or ₹18 ?

      Hello Arpit,
      If you buy shares and sell those shares on same day then no Demat Transaction Charge (DTC) is charged to you. Once you buy shares, you shall receive those shares on 2 working days to your demat account by the exchange. DTC is charged only when you sell the shares which are in your demat account.
      Lets understand with an example. Let’s assume you have 100 qty of A stock, 200 qty of B stock and 500 qty of C stock, in your demat account. On any day, if you sell A stock with any quantity then Rs.15+GST DTC will be charged. Along with A stock, if you sell B stock and 200 qty of C stock then DTC will be (3*18)+GST. This means, per day for one company stock (Any qty) you will be charged Rs.15+GST. Hope we addressed your query.
