What is Call & Trade charges and why it is getting Charged?

Currently, there are many ways in which you can buy and sell your securities like via mobile app, HTML based trading platform, trade terminal, or install-able desktop software, and via calling to brokers executive but before the online broking era, the customers were inclined towards making calls to their brokers and making purchases of their securities. During that period the brokerage charges were relatively very high as compared to the current scenario. Due to high brokerage charges, earlier brokers could maintain a large number of employees and relationship managers to handle clients on a personal basis but today, when brokerage charges are relatively very low and are charged as fixed fees rather than variable fees, the call & Trade facility is provided at the chargeable basis and these charges are called as call & Trade charges. these charges often charged on per executed order basis.
