STT Charges on futures that are allowed to expire

  1. For futures that are allowed to expire-Are there any STT Charges?

  2. If Yes-Is it higher or lower than the normal STT charges?

  3. Also technically there should not be any brokerage I believe

There is no STT or brokerage charged for expired futures which is cash settled. However, an STT of 0.1% and brokerage of 0.5% on the trade value is charged both for the buyer and the seller in case of expired futures which is settled by physical delivery.
