    I have paid Rs. 100/- online for eKYC. Do I again need to send a cheque of Rs. 200/-. My saving accounts are in Allahabad Bank, which is not reflecting in the list of 27 Banks for fund transfer. In that case, how will I trade and make pay in for trading?

    1. Trade Smart Online

      Hello Vikas,
      You are not required to send Rs.200 cheque if you have already paid Rs.100 towards account opening charge. Since Allahabad Bank is not listed under payment gateway, you can transfer funds through ePay. This is the NEFT service which has faster fund transfer facility.

      Hello Nirajan,
      We guess you’re referring to account opening procedure. Your account will get open in two working days after your account opening form received and if all your documents are KYC compliant. Once the account gets opened, you can transfer funds and start trading.
