2. E Broking model (Server to Server):

Ebroking model is provided to brokers who are interested in recovering only partial funds from the client for execution of trades. The model is also suitable for Non-resident client transactions. The E broking model is basically developed around the need to place funds on hold / block the funds & then release or / & transfer the same based on request.
