Never open demat or trading account with Axis Securities. They do no reveal all the charges before account opening and will deduct random charges later from your bank account without giving bill or any explanation. NEVER open accounts with them

It is OK however they need to be ahead of competition, lots of improvement cab be done and provided on axis mobile app, axis direct and light. They should have continues software up gradation and development team of their own for site maintenance. Spend some money earned from brokerages fees. They should not charge for trading terminal.

their Mobile App and Website Login Is user friendly , their Brockerage is very high , Yearly AMC tops at 1200 which is exorbitant , BTST Orders not available , Cannot Square off Cash Orders before it gets Converted to Delivery , Need to Call Customer Care for that , Options trading Brockerage of rs 100 Per Lot is also very costly , Need to pay 2500 for using the trading Platform , thats another Minus !!!!
