The Fyers 30 day challenge is for real. On successful completion, this broker keeps up to his promise and refunds your brokerage and issues you the certificate.
In reality, at the moment, it seems like they do not have a fully automated reconciliation & reward system that is error free, for this 30 day challenge. If you do not receive your brokerage refund and certificate on time, you will have to chase them on their support email to claim your brokerage refund and certificate. Also, sometimes even successfully completed challenges are getting marked as “not successful”, again you will have to follow this up over many days to rectify the error and get your brokerage refunded. The 30 day challenge idea is good and unique, but wished it functioned more effectively and error free.
