i bought the shares worth rs 18545 and they deducted Rs 22211 from my account after adding up the taxes etc

such high charges for trading in icici i am feeling very bad after losing my hard earned money like this....Strongly against anyone opening a/c with ICICI. Very bad bank.

If you are regular trader with high volume, then go for prepaid plan of icicidirect which will help you to bring down your brokerage. I pay 0.03% brokerage in futures.
There are certain plans which can bring your brojerage down to 0.02%. But then you will have to pay advance brokerage, and it is beneficial for those who trades in derivatives with high volume.

the most expensive brokerage
only for high networth individuals or nris
they dont care about small investors ,traders as simple as that

dont go by the convenience of 3 in one account or by icici bank name
if u r a small trader investor find a discount broker
website hangs whenever high volume trade in nifty ..mostly on opening ,closing thus small traders are stuck with margin positions .
it happens so many times it seems planned
so called research is useless and mostly off target

no intraday charts even...

I am a customer of ICICI Direct and ICICI Bank since 5 & 14 years respectively. I am absolutely frustrated with the service provided by ICIC direct and the kind of mindless procedures in place.
On 8th April 2014 I contacted my enlisted Relationship Manager to 18th April 2014). To my utter disappointment, I faced the following problems with the relationship manager and till date 29th May 2014 my account has not been converted. My application is now on hold due to some procedural nonsense.
(1)      RM could not correctly convey the account conversion procedure. It took him several weeks after my arrival in India to find out and relay the documents required for this purpose.
(2)      The RM does not even have the basic understanding of types of account that are offered to an NRI customer.
(3)      On multiple occasions, he never came for the appointment at the agreed time. Moreover, I had to call him multiple times to ensure that he arrives for the appointment.
(4)      I had to call him multiple times for various follow ups.
(5)      He point blank lied to me that he submitted my application on 22nd April which I later came to know was not the case as my application was not traceable online for over a week. NRI helpdesk had to intervene to get this resolved.
(6)      I have been told that ICICI direct requires my documents (in foreign language) to be translated to English. I find this utterly stupid as the Indian Immigration allows me to enter the country without translating my visa then why does ICICI require this. Also, Citibank was able to convert my bank account to NRI account without getting the documents translated. I think its about time you re-evaluate your procedures.
(7)       Also, I dont understand why you require an Indian address proof for NRI customers. NRIs do not reside in India & its rare for them to have an Indian address proof.
My application is now stuck becaof some document issues & I do not see them getting resolved anytime soon. I am now considering switching over to your competitors. I will also be sharing this feedback online on all possible websites.

this is the worst brokerage that i have encountered. they have many hidden costs which get debited from your account without even a prior notice. dont go for ICICI Direct....unless you have too much money to throw away!! and btw the stock tips they give are anyway useless!!!

very high brokerage....no chance of profit for small trader or investor

so called intraday calls are totally useless as you will never be able to trade those calls...,icicidirect will suck your hard earned money by various charges

dont get tempted by convenience of linked account ,if you are a small trader or investor find a good discount broker....do some effort

I have the account since 10 years. But mostly I Reliance Money due to brokerage charges.

1. For anyone trading high volume, this site is useless, as the brokerage is too high.
2. The menu is too big.
3. Don''t know why they don''t the standard NSE or BSE codes rather than devising their own codes of 6 characters?

EXTREMELY HIGH BROKERAGE INTRADAY AS WELL AS DELIVERY
EG
DELIVERY BROKERAGE COMES TO .75% OR MORE ONCE TAXES AND DUTIES ARE ADDED
NIFTY FUTURES BROKERAGE ....INTRADAY IT COMES TO 250-260 PER LOT
anyone who trades intraday knows many trades are scrached...or cut near cost 1 2 points above/below COST

so SUCH HIGH BROKERAGE MEANS UR LOSSES WILL EXCEED YOUR PROFIT ALWAYS...

WEBSITE HANGS NO DOUBT ABOUT IT

FOR SOME UNKNOWN REASON THEY PROVIDE
4-5 DIFFRENT INTERFACE A WEBSITE FOR TRADING,THAN THERE IS TRADE RACER WEBSITE ,THAN TRADE RACER APPLICATION...
ALL THREE ARE EQUALLY CONFUSING FOR A NEW TRADER....
FOR PROFESSIONALS MIGHT BE USEFUL
MOBILE WEBSITE IS WORSE...ALSO A MOBILE APPLICATION

THE LAYOUT OF ALL THREE IS SO DIFFERENT AND CONFUSING....


NO INTRADAY STREAMING CHARTS TO REGULAR CUSTOMERS ...HOW IS ONE SUPPOSED TO TRADE INTRADAY WITHOUT THESE

ONE ADVANTAGE FOR THOSE WISHING TO PLAY BIG IS IT OFFERS VERY HIGH LEVERAGE MEANS U CAN TRADE VERY BIG USING LESS MARGIN

AND OF COURSE SEE YOUR MONEY EVAPORATE

NO SINGLE WAY TO MONITOR ALL YOUR OPEN POSITIONS

CHARTING TOOLS FOR REGULAR CUSTOMERS ARE VERY BAD AND NOT USER FRIENDLY AT ALL
THIS IS SOLELY DESIGNED FOR HIGH NET WORTH INDIVIDUALS....
MEANS THOSE TRADING HEAVILY DAILY SAY FEW LAKHS CRORES DAILY
THEY ARE RIDING ON SUCESS OF ICICIBANK AS OPENING OF LINKED ACCOUNT AND TRANFERRING MONEY IS EZEE ...
ALSO PEOPLE TRUST THE ICICI NAME AND ARE HESITANT TO TRY SMALL ,LESSER KNOWN BROKERS
TRADERS WHO R THINKING OF STARTING TRADING ....NEW TO MARKET
TRADE ONLY SMALL QUANTITIES INTRADAY...OR
INVESTORS WHO WISH TO INVEST IN MARKET NO TRADING ...ALL SHOULD NOT EVEN LOOK IN DIRECTION OF ICICIDIRECT...

In my experience it is the worst - my experience with angel, HDFC, Geojit and religare are superb by comparison ( I am struggling even to close the account at ICICI and get the last of my securities traded ). I strongly advise any wannabe investor to keep away from ICICI as their charges are high and their service in my experience is the worst of the lot.
