Fund Transfer: Transfer can be done by using paymet gatway,NEFT/RTGS/IMPS

Withdrawal: Equity delivery settlement takes T+2 days in India. Cash realized from stocks sold is available under withdrawal balance after 2 trading days.
Equity intraday and F&O settlement take T+1 day. Profit from any intraday equity or F&O trade is available under withdrawal balance from the next trading day.
Important note:

All equity fund withdrawal requests are processed once every trading day at around 7.30 pm. Any request placed after is processed only the next trading day. So any withdrawal request placed on Friday after 7.30 pm will be processed only Monday which is the next trading day.
All commodity fund withdrawal requests are processed trading days (Monday to Friday) at 9 am. All requests after that is processed only on the next trading day.
All fund withdrawals are processed using FT/NEFT/RTGS. Ideally HDFC bank clients should receive funds same day, and all other bank clients before noon next day. Funds might take much longer to hit the bank account on days like when exchange delays in issuing trade files, special trading days, F&O expiry days, and if we have any technical issues.
Indian banks are now closed for two Saturdays every month. Hence withdrawal requests placed on 2nd and 4th Fridays (for non-HDFC Bank account holders) will get credited only Monday morning.
If multiple bank accounts are mapped to the trading account, all withdrawal requests will be processed only to the primary bank account mapped. To change the primary bank account, download this form, sign it, and courier it back to us.
