Another social media user said that he had already predicted that Zerodha servers would crash on Wednesday following high action in the stock market after PM Modi made an announcement to infuse capital into the market through special economic package.

A stock trader complained about the repeated instances of Zerodha servers failing during market hours and demanded SEBI to conduct an enquiry against Zerodha.

Zerodha has faced issues on several occasions in the past. However, the Bengaluru-based company claims that it is strengthening its systems.

Zerodha says ‘We were not down’

Trading platform Zerodha later today released a statement that their system was not down today.

Zerodha stated that while some customers faced some technical glitch for some time early in the day today, it was one of their best performing day in terms of order execution speed.
