Instant withdrawal feature

Like I have also mentioned, before we send out funds we require time to reconcile and ensure the person withdrawing has sufficient funds in the trading account and the person who is withdrawing is the same person who transferred in. This takes time. But we are working on instant fund withdrawals, where atleast for certain amount you will be able to withdraw the same day.

Thanks for the info @nithin

  1. With 24x7 NEFT, shouldn’t the “working day” clause change in point #1

  1. Long back I had suggested a feature - instant withdrawal of MF redemption value as a loan, and charging loan interest for those T+X days. It would help an investor get instant money, also Zerodha would generate revenue, a win-win for both.

Once AMC credits the redemption value to Zerodha trading account, the loan is automatically recovered from the trading account (so the loan is a secured loan indeed) and in the monthly statement, loan interest amount for those T+X days is charged to the user.

E.g. say today before 1:30 pm I redeem equity MF worth Rs 50,000. I can immediately get a margin to invest in another MF or I can also withdraw it to my bank account without waiting for T+X days. At the cost of paying loan interest to Zerodha until AMC credits the amount in my trading account.

I would like to know your thoughts on this. I have given an example of MF redemption, though it can be applied to the sale of equity share too.

And Zerodha can charge interest beforehand or allow ~99.5% of the fund withdrawal. This will allow traders (who don’t mind paying interest on fund withdrawn for 2 days) to withdraw money fast. And generate risk free money for brokers. Ofcourse only if SEBI allows this type of transaction.

  1. Yep, but our bank is still not live on it yet. We will change it as soon as HDFC starts 24x7

  2. Not allowed currently.

Hi, looking forward for this feature, I want to use it for keeping a portion of my Emergency funds invested in Liquid funds & to be able to withdraw instantly. Any expected timeline for the rollout.

Dear small investors these people said same day withdrawal will be enabled from dec 16 2019… Now they are saying some non sense… Be smart don’t be fooled open an HDFC Account immediately and link it… they won’t do it any sooner because its a huge profit for zerodha ( they are holding our money for nearly 8 to 10 days )…if they really want to help customers they would have used IMPS feature long back…but this is business that’s how it will…be smart and open HDFC account (if u don’t have one)…if you note carefully zerodha will discourage customer from opening HDFC account… don’t ask them just open and link…let them do their same day withdrawal drama

C2C transactions are enabled for 24x7
But, B2C transactions are not done yet for 24x7

Individual to individual transactions are allowed for now but not at corporate level. We will allow this once HDFC enabled it at business level.

@siva Is this done yet? Can’t see option to withdraw and receive money same day yet. Please advise

This will take some more time.

@siva @nithin I just confirmed with my HDFC bank manager that 24x7 NEFT is available for all bank customers. Individual and Corporate business accounts alike. This benefit of 24x7 NEFT should be passed on to Zerodha users as instant withdrawal feature.

We’ll check with our bankers and get back.

Instant withdrawal will be powered by IMPS, not NEFT. There are some internal processes pending before we can go live, we’ll announce.

What 24X7 NEFT will aid is, that when we process our regular payouts, the credit will hit your account sooner than now.

It doesn’t currently. I had withdrawn at 3:31 pm on Friday and the money came to my account on Monday morning. That’s too long an unnecessary wait if 24x7 NEFT is enabled by HDFC too for Zerodha corporate business account. More than that I didn’t get the money when I needed so. We also lose interest amount for the delay. Forget Instant withdrawal, just be in sync with the bank NEFT turnaround time. Even at midnight I should be able to withdraw and the money should hit my bank account as per 24x7 NEFT norms which is not instant but almost instant. It would be good enough for us to suffice our expectation.


You’re getting confused. There are 2 kinds of payout:

(a) Regular payout (RP): RP will allow you to withdraw any or all the money in your account. Regular payouts will be processed after we’ve processed our trades and have posted the obligations on your ledger. RP will be processed via NEFT. Regardless of when you place the request, it’ll be processed only after the trade process is done which is around 9 or 9.30 in the evening. Once the payout is processed, the funds will hit your bank account subsequently. If NEFT is made 24X7, you’ll receive the credit at 11.00 pm or 12.00 am instead of receiving it the next day.

HDFC’s corporate banking portal is ENET. FYI, here’s a confirmation email from our bank confirming that 24X7 NEFT isn’t available yet.

(b) Instant Payout (IP): IP will be processed via IMPS, you’ll be allowed to withdraw a portion of your funds (with an upper cap) instantly. When you place an IP in the midnight, the funds should hit your bank account in a few minutes, subject to you having sufficient balance. This, is WIP and will be announced soon.
