Pune (Maharashtra) [India], July 28 (ANI/BusinessWire India): A demographic shift towards new-age technology in India has steered the focus towards a new mate of stockbroking, known as discount broking.
However, the discount broking industry in India is relatively nascent, with not many trusted names in the space. Bajaj Finance Limited (BFL), one of the trusted players in the consumer finance segment, is set to disrupt the Indian discount broking space with a unique service proposition through its wholly-owned CRISIL AAA/Stable rated subsidiary, Bajaj Financial Securities Limited (BFSL).
BFSL carries the legacy of BFL's trust, and offers low-cost brokerage benefit to investors with its free and paid annual subscription packs. Investors can save up to 99 per cent* on brokerage for delivery trades and up to 75 per cent** brokerage on equity F&O trades with the Professional Trading Pack.
In addition to the low-cost brokerage, BFSL is also offering a host of other benefits, aimed at helping investors to capitalise on the market opportunities and providing the required infrastructure and support, needed in times of financial exigencies.

2. Leveraged position in the market (up to 20 times of net worth) at Rs 0.05 per day
Margin Trade Financing can help investors take a leveraged position in the market by paying only a fraction of the total transaction value, i.e. 'margin'.
