Good service provided by HDFC Sceurities, web site based trading plateform good but DP charges cut monthly from the account is very surprise, how much they may cut ia can not under stand the formulae for monthly DP charges. I am maintaining my account since August 2008.

WHAT HAD HAPPENED TO ME , I THINK HA NOT HAPPENED WITH ANYBODY . I GOT A JOB IN PUNE IN HDFC STANDARD LIFE 2008. SO THEY OPENED MY SALARY ACCOUNT, WITH THAT CREDIT CARD ALSO, AND EVEN THEY OPENED MY DEMAT ACCOUNT WHICH I NEVER WANT THAT TIME. COZ EVEN I WAS NOT AWARE OF A SINGLE THING IN SHARE MARKET. AS MY BOSS INSISTED OR CUD SAY FORCED ME TO OPEN DEMAT ACCOUNT. AS FOR CREDIT CARD I GOT BENFET , NO BLAME FOR IT . BUT FOR DEMAT I GOT SCREWED UP . THE KIT NEVER REACHED MY HOME . BUT WHEN AFTER 3 YEARS IN 2012 AUGUST , SUDDENLY I HAVE GIVEN A CHEQUE TO SOMEBODY TO CASH FROM MY ACCOUNT . THE CHEQUE GOT BOUNCED DUE TO INSUFFICIENT FUND . DO U KNOW WHY? BECA800 RS WAS DEDUCTED FROM MY ACCOUNT AS AMC AFTER 3 YEARS . WHICH I WAS NOT AWARE AND NOBODY HAD TOLD ME OF THAT . EVEN HDFC SEC PEOPLES HAVE NEVER INTIMATED ME . AS I WAS NOT AWARE OF THAT I HAVE TO CLOSE THAT DEMAT ACCOUNT. WHEN FINALLY I CLOSED IT UP , I SUFFERED A LOT . EVEN I ASKED THEM THAT I HAVE NEVER TRADED , OR EVEN I HAVE NEVER GET THE OPENING KIT . I GOT A REPLY THAT ITS COMPANY POLICY. SO UNETHICAL HDFC SEC DIVISION IS I CAME TO KNOW . AS I AM A DAILY TRADER SINCE LAST YEAR IN IIFL . IT IS GOOD .

I have my trading account which they have deactivated without any information. I have complianed to the customer care but not getting reply. It is nightmare to deal with the employees of HFDC securities. It is my sincere advise not to open any demat cum traidng account since there are so many other options available.

I have a trading a/c with HDFC since last 2 years. I like it very much for the following.

- safety/security on net is very strong.
- timely execution of required process.
- customer care service is very good.
The only drawback on their system is when we want to place an order through phone, we have to wait for the long time.
Ahough the brokerage rates are a little bit high, my overall rating is "Better". If HDFC securities reduces its brokerage rates for retail investors then,I THINK, a huge no of retail investors will switch to HDFC Securities.

Thanks

I haven't tried any other broker yet. But till now, my experience with HDFC sec has been average. The trading page gets expired after every few minutes of idle time, which is irritating. Brokerage seems to be higher, if compared to other brokers. But as far as interface is concerned, I think it is good and user friendly.

I don't know how others' work, but HDFC's customer support is satisfactory for me.

a/c maintenance fee is on much higher side comparatively. Brokerage is also on higher side. Website sometimes creates problems for along period. Customer service is average. Overall experience with the HDFCSEC.Ltd is very poor.

The website does not work in multiple browsers. The trading interface is very unintiutive.

Additionally - the downtime for this trading site is very high. They started an upgrade on Monday 17 Oct 2011 - and its still down today 19 Oct 2011.

72 HOURS of downtime is completely unacceptable for a paid service. Even "Free email services" are never down for more than a few hours, its appalling that a critical service of this sort is down for days. It just reflects on the state of the company's management and philosophy of negligence.

High brokerage rate is a crucial factor. It discourages trading on cash basis. The management gives option to trade through their Relationship Manager to avail concession in brokerage. The offer is quite funny. If the investor is trading on his own using the system why the management is tempted to recruit Relationship Managers on the one hand and giving concession in brokerage on the other to the account holders instead it can reduce the brokerage for the investors straight way. It will cost less to the Management. HDFC Securities listening?

Bank is charging now separately for DP account and trading account, Which are about Rs. 800.
Brokerage is flat 0.50%, there is no concession appearing
Customer Service takes longer time and does not provide appropriate informtion most of time.
Overall it appears that Bank is targeting on customers bank balance and charging for each and every thing, even some banks are prviding the same without any cost.
