I have been with geojit since 2006 and have built a large investment portfolio picking the company myself not based on recommendations. No regard for association with them. The brokerages are high and non-negotiable. Branch heads are not empowered to take decisions on brokerage. I have account with mosl, they are better in customer relationship management than geojit which is very arrogant. Shares bought will be sold if settlement not done within 1 day. Normally it is t+2 with other brokers. On top of non-negotiable brokerage they have a cut throat approach. I will definitely not recommend geojit based on my experience.

I am using Flip platinum My no is UGR 048. In the morning and at the time of placing main orders Geojit BNp is not allowing me to login in mobile trading even though the password check allowed. This is happening only at the time os FLIP secure authourisation only.So I planned to stop trade in GeojitC75ES
Geojit''s Flip platform is undoubtedly a good one. But they can can still make it still better by improving. Currently it produces intraday which is not linked now), it could be of great help for all traders, as one can technical parameters and earn good sums from trades.
However, Geojit will not go for such enhancements, as they are least bothered of customers earnings. They just bothered for their brokerage. When it comes to brokerage charges, it might appear to be reasonable but in reality it is not.
I consider these brokerage rates are no less than day light robbery. Yes it is nothing but looting their own customers.
Dear Investors, Be carefull before open9ing trading & demat account with Geojit. Their customer care is a very hopeless department. They will not understand your problem at all. but willl go on wrinting you you as reply for ypur question withought knowing the question. They will also not give you credit of the shares you purchase in time. you will have to be after them evry time. They will also send the remittance to any bank without knowing what is your default branch for the statory pay out. For last three qurter end i have faced this problem. when i wrote to them neither customercare nor grievacex committe is replying to my emails on the matter refered. You will be tossed from one deprtment to other for a indefiite period. But you will never get your problems solved. Be carefull while opting for GEOJIT as your stock broker. I have lost faith on them & now I am taking up the matter with SEBI & NSDL. THis is for your kind attention.

The brokerages and other charges are very very high.Their suggestions for intraday trading and delivery based investment are very poor. The printout they give as account statement is confusing and not at all clear. They have to improve a lot in customer service.
All my family demat, trading accounts were with them for more than 10 years. However, for last two years their services especialy customercare are very bad. I get irritated with their irrelevent querries & SO CALLED ADVISES. therefore, i have decided to sever the long kept relation with them. GOD SAVE THE CLIENTS OF geojit.

Their brokerages are kinning!!no Flexibility!!Remember that these are 3 rd parties who gain money through customer tradings and yet they monopolize.There are very many other platforms and competitive.
Flip Gold had severe SQL errors and i was tired sending them the attachments.They were complaining about my internet connection(512kbps broadband) and i encountered no issues with other platform run at the same time.
I will be closing their account with immediate effect.CHEATERS!!!!!!!!!!!
Geojit has two platform options available for trading. I use the lite platform which is very hassle free and light. It takes very less time to put a order.
Also the customer care site is very transparent when it comes to giving details about daily transaction.
To top all, the brokerage is very competitive. I changed from a very renowed broker to Geojit and I am happy about my switch.

Did You Konw - 29 :- Shares sold in pending settlement. Shares sold in pending settlement. Flip provides clients with the facility of selling the shares before T+2; but risk has to be borne by the client if there is a shortage in payout. Geojit Bnpp provides settlement guarantee for around 300 scrips where in the clients can sell shares before T+2, list of scrips are available in gcc and geojit.net sites.

Did You Konw - 27 :- Passwords for customers. Passwords for customers.
Forgot password link in Customer care/Trading sites can be used by a client who have lost or forgotten his password. In normal circumstances, It takes around 15-20 Minutes to get a new password in the Registered email id of the client. New password is sent in a PDF file with password protected. Password for opening the PDF file is a combination of TIN+1st 4 characters of PAN. If TIN is not known to the client he can give the Forgot Tin link provided in the Customer care/Trading sites. Forgot password can be given only by those clients who have an registered email id.
We have one password concept which can be used across all logins ie; Customer care site/Gold/Lite/Platinum/Flip Me.
