How can I place orders in the illiquid stocks in Fyers?

Placing a market order in illiquid stocks can be very risky as there might be a massive difference in the Bid & Ask price of the stock that might lead to freak trades. Therefore, it is always recommended to place a limit order where the order will be executed only if the stock price reaches your preferred limit price. As a thumb rule, it makes sense to place only limit orders to minimize slippage/impact cost.
