Hi Das, There is a small correction it is not inter day it is intra-day that is day trade you purchase or sell and square up your position at the end of the day This may be sale without having securities which is known as "naked sale" or purchase without the intention of taking delivery. In intra day transactions, charges are for either for purchase or sale it cannot be both.
