I am going to close my 1 year old account with Kotak, they are charging 4 times more brokerage on small scrips below 10rs.
Its better to open account with discount brokers.

In few days I was about to open a demat account with Kotak securities, but here it seems they are hidden charges and not good for beginner investors.

I''m trading in Kotak Securities for more than 2 years. I didn''t have any problem initially, but, whenever I''m going for some customer support I''m seriously disappointed. I recently opted to change my offline account to an online account. I have given all the necessary papers there is no proper response from them whenever I''m trying to contact. They actually told the processing time would be 2 days, but, its been 15 days since i submitted the forms. I''m seriously disappointed with their service. If no proper action is taken in the next few days, i have no other option than quitting Kotak Securities.

My experience with kotak securities is worst i never suggest any one for kotak. Whatever they say they never follow. Even i got mail from there side that they will remove maximum brokerage concept from my account then also they are charging as the same, no meaning of there words, Now i am going to close the account.

Can you please define how you are calculating your intraday brokerage charges.
Like if i BUY 100 share @ 56 and SELL 100 share @57, then how you calculate brokerages.
Note:I am existing customer of Kotak Securites
120.1. venkateshwara  Oct 28, 2014 2:25:25 AM IST
Hai Anill Sharma,
your Total Turnover is 11,300 and your intraday brokerage of 0.5% will be (11,300 *0.5/100 = 56.50 )

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

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.

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.
