Very very high brokerage for retail investors with the 21/- minimum brokerage of one executed order.

If you invest 1000/-, buy brokarage sell brokarage and DP account ITS SEVEN VERY VERY HIGH).

Then how can you earn profit.
If you want to invest 1lack rupees in stock market you won''t invest on only one stock on one day so brokerage is very very high.

Even though you got 10% profit you need to pay 7% brokerage so waste of using it.

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
136.1. 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
