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/-.
I brought 166666 Shares for the price of 0.09 per share Total value of the shares is RS 15000 and they are charged more brokerage charges then my share which is not at all acceptable (166666 * 0.04=6666.64)

The Brokerage charges of Kotak Securities is very high. I have been with them for 8 years and I strubbled upon this website, and to my suprise I have been paying higher brokerage for my Option Trading. I seriously do not know how they are suviving.
Kotak Demat does not work on mobile phone with windows OS. The brokerage charges are very high and many hidden charges. Kotak DEMAT a/c not advisable for small investors. they will eat into investors profits. The only merit with kotak is the trading platform is easy.

I recently opened my account in Kotak Securities .My demat and trading account is not yet activated. was reading these reviews :
My relationship manager told to me that for corporate users , the brokerage value is low , like , Rs 0.20 per 100 Rs. Therefore If I''m buying shares worth of rupees 1000 total , then I have to pay (1000/100)*0.20 = 2 Rs as brokerage value.
After reading this comments tried to reach out to my relationship manager. If these comments are true , then it will be very bad for me.
I wanted to open online trading.what are the records must be given?what are the brokerage charges?is it apply for one side or to side

I have opened demat account.. and i had been promised to get an offer of 1000 rs free share of any blue chip company.... i used to call kotak security team but every time they promised to give that offer ASAP..its been 2 months i have been following up..and there is no follow up from there side nor even they care to answer the queries..
i have a very bad experience and i am going to close it ASAP...
I have been offered a "Advance Plan", which offers to refund full brokerage along with Service Tax. The plans are for Rs.7500, Rs.10,000, Rs.25,000, Rs.50,000, And Rs.1,00,000 Valid for one year. Suppose I chose a plan of Rs.7500 for 12 months and generate a brokerage of Rs.6000 then fee of Rs6000 would be reversed to my account. if the brokerage generated is Rs.10000.00 then only fee of Rs.7500 is reversible as the maximum amount reversible is the advance fee. The reversible will be done on monthly basis till the end of tenure.I am also told that I can pay additional advance brokerage in between to avail the reversible. Is this true?A.Gupta

Hi, I am a really frustrated Kotak customer. I had an account with Kotak, and I usually trade less. I have a good Mutual fund portfolio. I decided to trade more this year and I found a great chance when the markets dipped. I wanted to buy my favorite sector "Banking". When I went to buy , I got to know my account is blocked as there was a fire at Kotak''s office in Mumbai. They didn''t care to inform me via phone. They said they had sent me an email, but in the pile of emails, I would have lost it. I will have to visit the branch and submit all the documents. Next I tried to close the account and open another in Kotak Bank DP. They rejected my request and again didn''t inform me, despite of sending all the docs. This is going for last 2 months, and I have lost a chance to make profits. At this point of time, I still have my trading account in an Inactive state. To reopen it, their executive had promised to visit, which never happened. I am now seriously thinking of moving out of Kotak and breaking 9 year old relationship. Enough is enough.
