Very disappointed with Axis, started with Plan 25555 but brokerage not clear.Same day different charges are charged without valid reason,

High Brokerage charges very little service .

Axis Direct charges very high brokerage charges and consolidated DB charges every now and then. Now a days brokerages like Motilal Oswal and Edelwesis are offering very low brokerages. only 5 to 10 paisa on delivery. Axis Direct charges 50 paisa on delivery due to which taxes are also very high.

India Stock Market - NSE - Green or RED does not matter - Looters and Cheaters

All my hard earned grtuity of nearly 1.5 Lakhs evaporated in 4 months in a targeted
stock market looting my following scrips. I have done great research, applied data science
knowledge, studied ALPHA, BETA, GAMMA, DELTA and picked what appeared to be a Safe and
profitable stocks with good market stability and market cap.

I have paid 10-year one time fee of 6600+ for Online trading account of AXIS DIRECT only
to realize that this web application developed by TCS is an expert looter of investor money.
The application seem to be coded to directly bias towards brokers and scrips directly looting at
the point of investment. The invested stock goes down next minute of investment and stock price
does not go up until the stock is sold out in lowest reaching lows. The process is promtly
helped by NSE index price and this phenomenon continues when marker is Bearish or Bullish.
The trading charges are almost 2% to 3% on share price which includes -- Brokerage,
ExchangeTransaction Charges, SEBI Tunrover Fees, CGST, SGST, Securities Transaction Tax,
StampDuty, NSE Demat Charges.

I am giving my actual scripwise listing by the top black list, atleast so made by AXIS-DIRECT
perhaps, the worthless looting stocks from top to down. Another prominent observation is that
major stock holders in these scrips are LIC. I am not sure if this bulk investor want to retent
the stock price for some obvious reasons.

The customer care of axis direct is clueless about any challenge you face on the axis regarding trading on axis direct platform and they talk as if they are doing a favor to the customer by opening the account and letting them trade. For technical queries they say please write to the exchange and seek clarification as if i am trading on the exchange.. one really wonder how they will survive in this competitive environment..

I don''t understand the brokers charges of axis direct securities because my plan is now and never plane and they mention the brokerage charges for this plan is:_ for holt_ 25 paise/ share. For interday_03 paise/share. In the other hand instead of this they charges 25 paise in interday. So axis direct cheating people.

Axis Direct are the biggest fraud out there. After a month of trading in Futures i suddenly noticed that their interface shows wrong average traded price. Because of this the futures which were actually in loss was shown in profit after few days. As a result I lost close to 70,000 rs in a span of 10 days. I dug deeper and found out that none of the reports match each other on the settlement price. Their next day settlement report shows much higher price than the traded price even after considering brokerage and all other charges.
I called up their customer care, gave remote access and showed all the evidence.
After that total silence from them.
After few days I again called and asked to speak to supervisor but they said nobody was available and they will call back.
No body called even after 3 days.
I strongly suggest not to use Axis Direct. They have horrible support and have no clue to what they are doing. Their systems are one of the worst with may major technical flaws.
Please note I am not a biased user and I can share screenshots of the issues I faced as evidences.

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
