What are SEBI Charges?
Beginning 1 January 2007, a SEBI circular on turnover fees introduced the “SEBI Regulatory Fee” commonly called SEBI Charges on all registered Stock Exchanges of India based on their respective Turnover.
This charge is levied by SEBI to meet expenses it incurs while carrying out its duties.
How are these charges collected?
In order to collect SEBI charges, the Broker collects them first from the client. The amount is clearly shown in the Contract Note sent to the client by the Broker. Later, the Broker remits the same to the relevant exchange, viz NSE or BSE. The Exchange in turn deposits the funds with SEBI.
What is the current rate of SEBI Charges?
Currently, SEBI Charges are levied at Rs.20 per Crore 0.0002% on the value of the Transaction. Unlike STT, the rates of which which vary for Intra Day Trades & positional trades, SEBI charges remain constant.
The SEBI Turnover fees on the NSE and the SEBI turnover fees on the BSE are the same.
