Usage of APIs

The APIs are meant to be used for building innovative investment and trading platforms (“IBT” - Internet Based Trading) with the greater goal of increasing capital market participation in India. This may be for personal use, where You, a Client, develops a private interface exclusively for customizing personal trading and investment experience, or this maybe for building a trading platform which in term will be offered to the public, other Clients of Navia. Development of trading platforms are bound by various norms and regulations stipulated by various exchanges and SEBI. You are responsible for ensuring You adhere to these platform guidelines and regulations and seeking appropriate regulatory approvals if necessary. If You seek to obtain exchange approvals for your platform as Navia’s in-house platform, Navia will provide the necessary assistance.
