I have account with Kotak securities. I am not frequent trader, so their customer care called me and told me that if I do not trade atleast once in 3 months my account will be blocked. They did not tell that to me during account opening
IT WAS REALLY DISSAPOINTING

Demat to Bank transfer fund takes 1 day, no square off option, Hidden brokerages very high. No option for choosing Intraday/Delivery. Actual brokerages are much higher than stated above.

Hi,

Please AVOID Kotak Securities!! I am an existing customer(DP ID with Kotak Securities: IN300214) and how I pity myself for choosing this bank. They will NOT tell you all the charges and hidden charges will start appearing in your account 3 months after your purchases. So, if you do not follow your transactions carefully, they will slowly bleed you.
AVOID at all costs.

Same problem in my case also, for opening 3 in 1 a/c they told 5000. But I have given all documents and I signed in all doc''s . Finally when I given cheque they asked me give cheque 20000, i asked y ? For opening a/c you have give 20000 in that time only we will open a/c. I surprised by this word''s becaI m working in union bank of india, central office , mumbai and I m doing trading from past 3 years with sbicapsec.
finally I told, even international banks also not taking this much money for opening a/c. I don''t want ur banks a/c.

Why forget the fact that APART from brokerage on Sell, for each sale of script you also need to pay 0.04% or around Rs 30 minimum? Try trading with these numbers...:-) So, basically every time you sell you pay almost double the charges than others...

1. Charges are very high , which i realised after trading.
2. The sales executive lie a lot - during opening of account they show a very low brokerage, but on trading I find that lot of hidden charges were not explained .
3. The sales executive are not fully trained .
4. Kotec securities is not profitable for intraday traders - we lose lot of money gained on brokerage. I will not recommend this to any one

I second what Nithin has said. Enough warnings on this page for Hidden Charges with Kotak Securities. Still I made the mistake. Anyone else having time and money to waste on these hidden charges is welcome to waste on them..

Most bogus broker I have experienced. Don''t believe the person and the brokerage norms of this Brokerage firm. They are promising some thing when to open the account after that they telling some new norms and criteria regarding the brokerage. For best brokerage system you can open an account in "Trade Smart Online", which is the best brokerage company I have experienced in India. After cheating from Kotak Security I have switched over to Trade smart online.

I was new to trading. Planned to start a demat and trading account, while browsing found that kotak has a 3 in 1 trading account after which I applied online and got a call and executive visited to my place and explained that if I deposit 1 lakh rupee to open the account then my charge will be intraday .03 and future as .30 and a small amount in case of delivery charges. They even told that as I am new to this they will initially come n install the software and help to do trading. It was my biggest mistake to open an account with kotak as I have already lost thousands due to wrong promises and the brokerages are charged as they wish, even after my account has a balance of 1 lakh I got a mail stating that I have to pay 10,000 n odd immediately. When called the person who opened this account stating about the mail he asked me to ignore it and he is loud enough n telling that he explained the same to me n now I am lying. If immediate action is not taken I will close my account and go legally.

I have a very bad experience with kotak mahindra. bank as well as security both.
1) Brokerage charges are so high for small investors in intra day trading .i know company must be taking benefit of this in terms of money, but may be loosing customer definitely.
2) when i opened demat account with kotak security. their associates has not informed all necessary information.i just need kotak trading account.not saving account but they have opened kotak demat account linked with kotak saving account, in which it is mandatory to maintain a balance of min Rs.10000.what a sit.its a cheating. becaof poor information i have not maintained my saving account with required balance. so they have deducted total Rs. 5000 from my saving account. even though balance was going in negative no customer call from their end. and when i went to kotak bank and asked for the same.why money was deducted they do not have any answer for their mistake. why we are in kotak to make money or to loose money?

Please have a transparency in your system so customer will not be hurt.

Any way i will surrender my account ASAP.

I have trading account with kotak securities for many years. The trading platform is good. But they 3000-180.9-21.7-3.6-75.75-133)ALSO FOR STOCKS WITH VALUE LESS THAN Rs.100 per share Brokerage rate becomes almost 2 times due to increase in quantity of shares. If these huge "OTHER CHARGES" are reduced your profit will be good.

Kotak securities is definitely better than ICICI sec, as far as website interface is concerned. They present your data succinctly and usefully.
Brokerage used to be good, but now they have increased their rates.

All of sudden started to charge 21/- per transaction. It is too much for investor doing trasaction of small lot. If doing 10 transactions of 10 shares each then charges are 210/-. It is too much if transaction value is less than 5000/-.
