Nse direct membership

I came to know individuals can apply for direct membership at nse.
How individual nse trading members trade, i mean through which trading platform?
Does the nse providing any software?
Or they have to approach any brokers for trading terminal?

well… as they have spent so much on nse membership it is likely they will be using their own trading platform… there are lots of platforms like ninja trader etc which support third party feeds… so likey them…
