Just like there are a few people in between who charge you a certain amount of money to do a certain work for you, same is the case when you trade in commodity exchange in India. As per the SEBI rules in India, you cannot trade in the stock market directly and therefore you need to have an agent or a firm in between that is legally licensed to become the middle firm that allows people to trade through them in the commodities. As a result of this, the customers will have to get their accounts opened for commodity trading with these broking firms. As fees, these companies are going to charge you certain amount of money on every trade request (both buying and selling commodities). This amount of money is known as the commodity brokerage charged in the commodity markets.
Different broking firms would charge your different brokerages when you trade through them in the Indian MCX. They consider different factors to decide on what charges they will levy on you.

A simple way that you can use for calculating the commodity brokerage is through using the commodity calculators.

Apart from the calculators that you use online, there is a few which you can download as well. These calculators can be downloaded in the form of general word or excel files which makes using them even easier.
