  1. To remove the hindrance of Knowledge, Zerodha introduced "Zerodha Varsity", a collection of all Stock Market Lessons and financial Lessons from which anyone can learn about Stock Market and how it functions and then can sensibly make the right decision while Trading and investing.
  2. Zerodha entered the market with a minimal brokerage fee that was 20 rupees or 0.03% whichever is less for all the intraday charges and 0 rupees for all the equity and direct mutual fund investments and it was the time when others brokerage firms were charging a very huge percentage of brokerage on all the Trades that a trader was doing.
  3. Zerodha made everything online and made its website a very user friendly so that the process of Trading becomes a more simple and not a tedious job making it easy to be used by any Trader, whether  they are technical sound or not.
  4. Previously because of lack of awareness and transparency the brokerage firm used to charge many hidden charges. The brokerage firm used to charge a very high price as brokerage. But Zerodha gave traders complete Transparency allowing a trader to know how its money was used and where it was going.

Now you must be thinking if the brokerage fee is so less then how Zerodha earns money, right. Zerodha earns money by charging a joining fee of rupees 200 from all the Traders who join the platform.
