ICICIdirect is a retail trading and investment service from ICICI Securities, the largest retail stock broker firm in India offering a wide range of investment options to the retail and institutional customers. ICICI Securities is part of ICICI Group...
Undoubtedly ICICI DIRECT is the best, but it is the worst broker if you are a small investor becathere minimum brokerage is 35 plus taxes in all the cases. So it is suitable for instititutional investors and for those long term investors who apply only IPO and Mutual funds. It is impossible for small investors to make a profit of single penny. 3in1 concept attracts but kills. Sharekhan is the best for small investors.Attach it with YES BANK and get 7% interest too.
Brokerage mentioned in this page is valid only if you trade for some 4.5k+ or 6.5k+ for these 2 plans, else the brokerage charges are 2.5%. They even charge brokerage for MF buy/SIP which many other brokers don''t. If you shop more than 7k every time & don''t buy mutual funds, you shouldn''t bother but enjoy all the fantastic features of online trading.
brokerage on higher side. Ex when I wanted to buy additional units of a mutual fund for Rs 1000/- the brokerage/charge appeared on the screen was Rs100/- that is it is 10% ? Is it not huge ?

Brokerage is very high in compare other brokering houses. ICICI Direct should contemplate about the brokerage. Other service is good,instant and praiseworthy. The only thing is about brokerage they should reduce brokerage. They should apply the brokerage according to the trades/trader or investors

Hi Hitesh, do let know more about your company and low brokerage details.
Icici gives excellent web usability. But it charges a hell lot in brokerages. Overall considering all the hidden charges. It is the costliest available service. I believe avoid.

Frustrated with high brokerage of icici direct, I tried sharekhan, ventura, and trade smart online. But on the whole I have come to the conclusion that icici direct is the best. With discount brokers you will get unlimited and unwarranted problems which will give you continious headache. discount brokers asks irelevent questions on withdrawal of more than rs 50000 and income tax department also asks you for such transactions.
Icicisecurties brokrage too much very poor service no free tollfree no

It is really sad to see cool mariner loose due to neglect on part of icici securities, and it is true they do not respond well to calls and there is no way to contact them promptly over the phone, even their brokers fail to pick up the phone when called and mostly mislead on market trends and stock pick up. Brokerage is craily high here.

Brokerage what you see in the list here may not be the same. It''s 0.55% only for trades more than some 6.5k else its 2.5% + other charges which comes up to 3%. It''s not a good option for small time buyers.

I (Asha Devija W/o Ramesh Devija) had opened one 3 in 1 account at ICICI Bank, Madhuvan, Udaipur. I am holding 20000 shares of UNNO Industries Ltd., in physical form, Bank has refused to D-Mat these shares becain their system, company''s name was not mentioned, where as on daily basis, trading of these shares are done,
Straight away,the client of icici direct are the losers and the other brokers clients are the winners.
Simple sentence of all about this broker - 'Want to wiped out all of your bank balance in no time'.
If even a single trader is making a profit with this broker, then i will say he is the luckiest man in the world (note that I am not talking about investors. I am talking about traders).

1.Brokerage fees could be lowered a bit. 2.Company F.D. done throught ICICI Direct website should have the provision of crediting back to the scource account on maturity / redemption.

It has very good Website with technical superiority. Lot of data and research capability. However, brokerage is highest amongst all the Brokerages. It is Highly reliable. Customer service in general is OK.

I have never had a good experience with any of the icici services. The charges applied in transactions and interest levied are huge and lot of unexplained charges. Never planning to take any more service from this fraud company which solely makes profit by cheating its clients not through any meaningful service.
