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

Trading Platform is not upto the standard and no pop up share tips. Everytime, we need to open the tips tab by that time stock might have gone up or down.

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.

I got a reply stating that the rates have been hiked on the basis of Company''s sole discretion,,,, how bad sole discretion without consideration for this investors.. very bady

Please see the Link that i received from kotak.
Brokerage costs would grow exponentially if this is implemented.
It would kill small traders and investor population with Kotak.
This kind of brokerage structure was the very reason why I had shifted few years ago from Angel Broking to Kotak.
This brokerage structure would hurt sentiments of Small Investors and traders like me. See the increase in brokerage in terms of %.. This is bad news. Every trade has to be equal or more than Rs 7000 for a person whose brokerage is 30 Paise in Delivery to be able to skip this bad scheme.

Amount       Current      Revised %Increase
100      0.3      2.5      733
250      0.75      6.25      733
350      1.05      8.75      733

1000      3      21      600
1250      3.75      21      460
2000      6      21      250

5500      16.5      21      27
6500      19.5      21      8
7000      21      21      0

This is not good..I am not happy and I certainly don''t want this structure of brokerage. Please do something about it.

i am with kotak security with about 8 months. And my experience is a disaster from few days. pensioner attending calls are not have any experience, if u ask them to do some thing they will do some thing else. I don''t know why is the option of call and trade with those fools. And keat pro is a useless tool....really slow and defective many times.
