The best thing about Religare is that its web site works only in Internet Explorer. I am using linux machine and it obviously dont run IE. I use Mozilla and Religare site succks... here. So, I will suggest if you dont have option of IE dont fo with Religare.

Pls dont open an account with religare as they r the worst service provider in this category. I have applied for a demat account and it took 45 days to activate my account. my money struck with them 45 days. Whenever i do trading i am getting n number of errors which i didn't get a proper solution from their customer service executives. So i will rate them 1 out of 5.

Dear Friends,

it's true that they Religare delay in their services a bit, But they do provide good servi8ce when it comes to broking. only a good Relationship Manager will be able to route the services of the company to you. Here in Kerala we are getting good service from the Sales Manager. Thanks to the religare advisors they help in trade a lot. Now I am getting exposure upto 12times for Intraday. And Religare is providing me Delivery Exposure too. I am a beginner in Online Trading but in my family almost everyone have Demat facility with different brokers. My Brother had adviced me to go for Religare, He said it's excellent among all the Online Broking platforms. I found him right when i started using RACE Pro. I am sharing my experience for the sake of all traders to yield good profit through RACE Pro.'s easy trading experience.

hi rakesh.... thatz what i was saying if ur a big client u will get gud service otherwise not .... for small clients local brokers r best....

hi manjeet, i am not suprised you had that experience. it was pretty much the same experience for me. but my RM was from andhra pradesh and i knew how to speak telugu. i got closer to her and got the help when needed promptly. and she was always saying no one cares for the kind of business i give, becose she was close to me she helped . if you want good service in atleast have 1 lakh ruppes in ur account and give more business. this is not how business is supposed to be. i am pretty sure i will grow my investments to more than one lakh one day. and that day religare wont be geting my business for the way they treat me.

Hi frnds .... I have a online account with religare, R-ACE Pro ... I paid Rs. 1800 for this, refundable... only if u give them brokerage of more than 1800 in a year... The software is good but the people r not good ... they care for u only if u r BIG CLIENT and bull s- - t if u r small client... my experiance is not good with them ... they charge interest on delayed payemnt ...for them, delayed payment means that if u buy shares on monday pay on tuesday else they charge interest and pay nothing for unutilised amt... my RM left the Religare and no one bothered to inform me abt that and it has been more than 4-5 months i have no informatin abt my RM....
In short after having experiance with them and listening to the views of other small investors i have come to conclusion that .... small investors shud open account with local brokers only or at the most brokers with regional operations only .... they atleast give u good service and if u have any problem they listen to u patiently and solve it immediately ....

Imtiaz, I think you better to opt for R-ACE Pro trading platform (activation charge Rs. 999 & minimum margin will be 10000) . Itís been software provided platform, please read my article in Reliance Money segment. Your brokerage type will be Classic A/C.
39. Imtiaz Ahmad  Apr 3, 2008 6:57:18 PM IST Reply
Thanks Partha, Which one is Classic Rs. 299 Or Rs. 499. And tell me what is minimum margin?
Thank You

Dear Imtiaz, I am using Race-Pro of Freedom A/C from last 2 years. There are no hidden charges as far as I am facing. But frankly speaking it's best suited package for high volume day traders. Better you can opt for Classic A/C package.

Dear MANJITH, taking Margin Money provision is completely optional. If you don't need any kind of margin exposure just tell it to your RM & fill the application form accordingly as I did it. Your query regarding ICICI Bank a/c that I have no idea about it though I also heard it. Follow every Terms & Conditions regarding all the matter. Ask your RM whether being provided the software R-ACE Pro 4.2.
36. MANJITH  Mar 31, 2008 5:22:20 PM IST Reply
Dear Mr.Partha thanks for the clarrification reg. min margin money. As I am very new to share markets & I wud like to open an account with religare & one of my friend has said that Religare will provide a free 0 balance acc. with ICICI is it right. Pls confirm I wud invest 3 to 5k per month for now in Markets and trade very less in this case is this necessary to maintain marginal money with religare.
35. Partha Das  Mar 30, 2008 12:27:28 AM IST Reply
Dear Manjith, if you are an intraday trader you have to pay a possible minimum loss amount according to your risk appetite in advanced called 'margin money', i.e. the broker will provide you 6 to 8 times (5000*6=30000) margin exposure for intraday purpose only & your loss not exceeding Rs.5000 anyway.
34. Manjith  Mar 29, 2008 6:02:43 PM IST Reply

To message no.45. NAGESWARA RAO, I don't know who told you thease misleading information. I am using Religare platform 'R-ACE Pro' from last 1 year. I opted for "Freedom" a/c, that is charged only Rs.4000/anum & trade upto 3,00,000 intraday. Please chek this websites Religare segment.

Seeing this web-site, I called up Religare Executive for details on opening the account. He obsolutely told that the data is totally wrong.

1. They pay no interest on un-utilised funds.
2. Annual demat charges of Rs.300/- needs to be paid
3. Brokerage of 0.5% for delivery and 0.05% for non-delivery.
4. Software charges of Rs.1800/- which is refundable.

When, I showed the web-site, he simply asked me to get in touch with the web-site and not Religare as no such products exists in their company.

Please check authenticity of the data on web-sites.
