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.


Regards

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/-.

Hi Team,

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)

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 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
