Buying a smallcase is exactly like buying stocks, with the added ease of tracking & managing it as a separate portfolio

Pay a flat one-time fee when you buy a smallcase

For all smallcases (except Select): Rs. 100 + GST (Rs. 18)
For Select smallcases: Rs. 200 + GST (Rs. 36)

No fees when you rebalance, exit or invest more into your existing smallcase

When you buy a smallcase - if the investment amount on the same day in the smallcase is less than Rs. 4,000, 2.5% of the investment amount will be charged as smallcase Fee. Above Rs. 4,000, the flat fee of Rs. 100/200 applies

There are brokerage & other charges that are incurred while buying/selling stocks

If you exit a smallcase completely, and buy it again, it is treated as a fresh purchase and the smallcase fees would be applicable again.
