Pls reply all points

If the broker you are trading with defaults, is labeled a defaulter by the Exchange, then you may claim such sums of money that the broker has defaulted on from the Investor Protection Fund (IPF). Quoting the below from NSE’s website:

The Investor Protection Fund Trust, based on the recommendations of the Defaulters’ Committee, compensates the investors to the extent of funds found insufficient in Defaulters’ account to meet the admitted value of claim, subject to a maximum limit of 15 lakhs per investor per defaulter/expelled member. (25 lakhs per investor per defaulter/expelled member in respect of claims arising on expulsion/declaration of default of members on or after January 6, 2017)

There’s no other insurance as such.
