not yet credited in your demat account, the order will fail to be placed and
will remain pending in ‘Unexecuted Orders’ tab.
ii. Exiting the entire portfolio will only result in selling of all stocks. Your
subscription to the portfolio will continue.
e. Unexecuted Orders: All orders which fail to be placed or executed post basket
order creation stage (through Initiate Rebalance, Invest More, Exit Portfolio), will
be captured here. You can then use this tab to place such unexecuted orders again
at a later time. Note that till the time there are pending unexecuted orders in your
portfolio, you will not be able to place any other basket order (Initiate Rebalance /
Invest More / Exit Portfolio). This is to ensure your portfolio remains in sync with
the model portfolio.
f. Mismatch in Portfolio: This tab will help you identify any deviation in holdings of
stock wise quantities in all of your Premium Portfolios vs the stock wise quantities
in your demat account. It could happen that you may use some of the quantities of
stocks bought through Premium Portfolio, and pledge the same for margin. Or if
you end up selling these stocks from general Equity place order page. Any such
deviation in quantity holdings will be reflected here.
Once our Research Team decides to initiate portfolio rebalancing, the relevant portfolio
changes will be made in the portfolio composition. For all existing subscribers of the
portfolio, ‘Initiate Rebalance’ tab will be enabled. Rebalancing basket orders will be
created by just clicking on the tab, and orders placed for execution. For new subscribers,
they will be able to invest in the new portfolio composition.

subscribers informing them about the rebalance. Pop up notification will be displayed on
