Zebpay is one of the oldest cryptocurrency exchange in India which has started its operation way back in 2014. Being the oldest exchange and one of the first exchange in India, they had a huge customer base and high volume trading in the platform.
However, the banking ban imposed by RBI has also affected the operation of ZebPay exchange as they didn’t switch to the P2P system to continue the operation.
As a result of that, ZebPay announced the shutdown of their operation in India and moved to other countries and started operation there.
As the judgement on the Crypto Vs RBI case was about to come out, Zebpay has announced it’s return to India under a new management team.
The ZebPay has relaunched in India again in March 2020 with zero-fee trading structure.
The users of ZebPay will be able to trade on their platform without paying a trade fee regardless of a market maker or a taker.
Instead of trade fee, they are charging a small monthly fee for wallet maintenance or keeping the crypto assets. However, in the case of a regular trader, it’s really great offer as the trading fee will be very higher than this amount.

The fee for deposit of INR remains zero for all the INR deposit methods currently available in ZebPay. As of updating the article, the INR deposit methods available are GoCashFree, MobiKwik and Direct bank deposit.
