How to prevent btst/stbt trades?

I don’t want to do BTST trade, but want FIFO delivery to be applied to my trades. How can I do that on Zerodha with CNC trades? Consider that I have 100HUL in my demat for > 1 year. I bought 50 HUL yesterday and sold 75 HUL today. This results in 50 BTST trade which is not what I wanted.

The best way to do it is to avoid doing BTST transactions on shares that you have been holding for long term.

If there are shares that you’ve bought > 1 year and on one given day you bought 100 fresh shares, wait till you receive delivery of them and then make a sale transaction. Do not sell the new purchase a day after you’ve bought them
