Guys !! Just check Turnover/Transaction Charges for each segment... Zerodha is charging too much compared to RKSV and other brokers in market.

There is some anomaly in charges being shown in future segment- RKSV -230 and Zerodha 190, but Zerodha calculator on site shows charges as 440 when contacted Zerodha they replied that there are clearing charges of Rs 200, that is also not being shown here.

RKSV should go for 3 in 1 account for all the three segment with a discounted fixed monthly brokerage. And if so, company will surely bring a high volume
