It is more than Six months since I joined Ventura & overall quite satisfaction till date with 0.1% delivery brokerage, 0.0% intraday brokerage, AMC 420, Free trading software POINTER & Mobile trading App.
I had other account with India Infoline but faced lot of problems there like:-
1.      Abolition of Rs 555 for Lifetime with No AMC for life & but now I have to pay AMC more than Rs 500 there
2.      First brokerage was 0.4% for delivery & 0.04% for intraday during account opening during 2011 which is now increased to 0.5% delivery & 0.05% for Intraday
3.      Trading software i.e. Trader Terminal was free but now I have to pay Rs 500 per month or to generate a brokerage equivalent to that.
These India Infoline fellows stopped all these service without any reason & imposed their verdict on us. So I have opened account with Ventura & quite satisfied till date & Hope this experience will continue like this as it is just six months with Ventura.

If you are ignorant/careless and with IIFL, u are doomed. just imagine out of my 5000Rs profit in options trading IIFL took 4000, the same would cost 40 Rs in Zerodha. Its alarming, I have pulled all my money and quit IIFL and moved to zerodha. Please make sure you keep a watch and explore other options, there are many much better brokers available in the market very cautious.

A lifetime maintenace charge of rs555/- were deducted initially. but for my surprise i was informed a debit balance of rs140+!!!. spoken to the customer relation executive, she is helpless. I told her to close my trading account if charges are continued. I have purchased lakhs of worth mutual fund without the help of IIFL. There are people who will be present at your doorstep sooner you call them.

Please dont fill your details on the iifl website as they will pressure you with all possible false claims until you open an account with them. I have an account with them since 2011 and I was promised a lifetime free account for Rs.555 but now suddenly they have started charging Rs.40 +tax per month. On complaining they said these are statutory guidelines but when I confirmed from another broker I learnt that no such guidelines have been formed.
Even my brokerge charges were suddenly revised without any intimation and on trading I learnt my brokerage has been increased.

I have felt a bad experience with IIFL.My account was opening under AMC free Scheme and taken 555 Rs for life time free AMC They said no AMC in the beginning and started to charge Rs.45/month since July 14.
They are highly irresponsible and giving false commitments to the customer.never ever open an account with IIFL .Pathetic and unprofessional.

Trader terminal is best but u have to pay Rs 500 per month
TTweb is very slow , u can log in & log out smoothly but others like placing order, changing order is difficult as the site is so slow
Customer care is useless
I have opened a parallel account with some other securities & shifted major holdings there but has not closed this account on assumption that some improvements be done in near future

traders terminal software charges rs 500 p.m? PLZ ANSWER.

Yes . These charges are Rs 500 or you have to generate a brokerage amount equal to Rs 500.
In addition to that IIFL has abolished our Rs 555 Lifetime plan & increased the brokerage without any notification.
So I opened a parallel account with Ventura during Aug 2014 & enjoying brokerage 0.1% on delivery stocks & 0.01% for intraday. In addition to that I was provided with trading software i.e Pointer & Mobile trading application app. I am having a nice experience atleast till date & shifted my all major holdings to Ventura.

I have opened an account with you by payment of Rs. 5555 vide cheque no 097108 date december 4, 2007 of SBI at Chandarpur for which an receipt no 675414 was issued. Since then I have not received any kit of any correspondence to guide me as to how to operate the account. Currently I am based at nagpur and I would like to know the status of my account and how to operate. Please send me the required details to enable me to do so.

I have my account with IIFL for last 5-6 years. I opened my account with Rs 555/- life time AMC. If IIFL unable to honour their commitment and started charging AMC then we should apprach authority as they are fooling customers and do whatsoever they want. We should get it examined by some authority like NSDL / CCI so that action can be taken.
