Changes to per day order limits

rakeshr edited July 18 in General
Dear Users,

We would like to inform you about an upcoming change to our account limits, which will be effective from Saturday, July 22, 2023. We have revised the number of orders allowed per Zerodha account.

Moving forward, the number of orders per account will be limited to 3000 across all varieties. Previously, the limits were set at 3000 for regular orders and 2000 for cover orders. With this update, you will now have one limit regardless of the order type and product type.

Best regards,
The Zerodha Team

    You mean combined 3000 (on all varieties) or individually 3000 (per variety)?

    It is the combined limit of 3000 orders per day for an account.

    1.) Is this limit per account or per API key

    2.) If it is per account, can we place orders manually via Kite, If we hit 3000 order limit? If no, we can't do anything in account? Like exiting position?

    3.) If I send a order via API, but it do not get registered (or show in Kite order page dashboard), will that order request also count in the limit? For example, If I place order before market open, or If I place order in a MIS blocked script, it do not get registered in orderbook officially.

    I request the API team to send an email as well for important announcements like this, please.

    It is a Zerodha account level restriction.

    Once users hit this limit, one can't exit positions as well. You will have to contact RMS to increase the limit for the day.

    All the requests are counted, even the ones that are blocked by the internal RMS and won't show up in the orderbook as well. It includes all the orders placed before and after market opens and closes.

    Thank you @sujith

    Is there any way to check the number of orders I sent today via API or manually? Or we need to keep track of it from our end like everything else?

    Also, how do I contact the RMS to increase the limit for some day? (I can find call & trade or support number only in Zerodha's contact us page)

    I am not close to hitting the limit and will try my best to not hit the limit.

    But In future, If a technical error from my side happens, I may hit the limit, and I would like to know, how to contact RMS as soon as possible in that case.

    In the future, If I develop a trading strategy that may require me to place more than 3,000 orders on a regular basis. Is it possible to request Zerodha to raise the order limit for my account permanently to a higher limit like 5k-6k orders?

    You will have to call support for increasing order limit for the day.
    You can write to support and ask the rms team to increase order limit, they will review and get back.

    Some of us use the API but do not log into the forum often. I am sure I am not the only one under this category. Therefore these kind of changes should be communicated to the API subscribers via email. I just happened to check the forum today by chance and came across this notification. Otherwise I would not have known of these changes maybe for months on end.

    Request you to implement a policy of informing API customers of changes to the limits or api itself by email.
