3rd June, 2020, Mumbai: Samco Securities Limited, one of India’s leading discount stock brokers launched a revolutionary product called BTPT or Buy Today, Pay in Two Days today for investors buying stocks.  BTPT is a facility that allows investors to buy delivery shares today by paying for only an initial margin and pay for the outstanding margin within 2 working days from the date of purchase completely FREE OF COST.


Currently, most brokers insist on paying 100% upfront margins when clients buy stocks for delivery in the cash markets. This is despite the fact that exchanges follow a T+2 settlement cycle where only a part of the margin (usually 20-25%) needs to be settled upfront but the balance (75-80%) can be paid on T+2 days.


Once you pay 100% upfront margins for your stock purchases on T Day, investors stand to lose on the accrued interest for 2 days. This interest amount could be huge over a period of time. BTPT enables saving this interest which can be far more than zero brokerage on delivery.said Jimeet Modi, CEO, Samco Group on the launch.


As an example – In case a client wants to buy 2000 shares of a company at Rs. 500 per share on Trading Day, then he/she shall be required to put up approximately Rs. 200000 in margin on T day and the balance Rs. 800000 can be paid by him on T+2 i.e. the settlement day.
