i hve checked out the rates of other leading brokers in market.?? like kotak..icici..its in line with hdfc (leading broking firm)..and now i believe...its safe to trade with trusted broking firms...rather than any local broker..local brokers may charge less brokerage but may not have any transparency,no proper service..

Sorry I forgot to mention it is HDFC Securities.

265.2. Kaushika  Jan 5, 2015 2:18:00 PM IST | 

Depository charges are charegs applicable by demat dept.-HDFC Bank...i believe that is the charge applicable when you sell any shares from demat account....still suggest you to contact demat desk of HDFC Bank on 61606161- Ext-5

265.3. Kaushika  Jan 5, 2015 2:41:04 PM IST |

Very poor brokerage.
They charge brokerage minimum 25 Rs. per transaction it is too much. You can''t earn money unless you get a big deal. This charge is too much, I''m going to close my account with HDFC Securities, and will get a new broker. It may be their brokerage high but at least they will not charge minimum brokerage like HDFC Securities.

Very poor brokerage

As per my view,i believe brkg with HDFC securities 0.5% on delivery & 0.05 in intraday, is competitive amongst leading firms. I had to suffer a higher brokerage with ICICI refer-
their Website features a lot information on markets, updates & portfolio maintenance,especially introduction of my page feature is phenomenal...i suggest u try the same:-)

Why dp transaction charges that are levied while selling shares are not mentioned in above information as well as the comparison chart.
Is it not necessary to disclose this to readers?

I''m interested in opening a demat account in hdfc. I posted for a call and told to give a demo. But they seem careless. but icici representatives give me a call and provide me a demo for demat account. i would say HDFC is having poor customer service.

255. anil  Apr 27, 2014 8:15:44 PM IST |  Reply 

Aditya birla money is a cheat company. even if hdfcsec is charging high let it be. aditya will show your all money zero in intraday and you cant do anything. It is my experiance.

HDFC demate serveice very poor, when you want to open they can come at home. but when you want to close it you have to go to various places for form submission. after form submission they will deduct rupees from your account. and then atleast will call you 3-4 time. why you wnt to close account??? and at last may not close account saying some unreasonable reason your signed to matched or written not clearly. High brokage also.

the brokerage is higher than others( 5 paisa and 50 paisa)(Aditya birla Money 3 paisa and 30 paisa).The exposer is also very less(HDFC gives 30 % exposer where as Aditya Birla Money gives 9 times (Ex:If you have Rs.10000.00 in your account you can trade with Rs.100000.00 in Aditya Birla Money.Aditya Birla money gives you T+9 days that means you can hold a share for 10 days but in HDFC only T1.

hey santosh...i checked out and in Aditya Birla money an amount of Rs. 5000 is mandate margin requirement to begiven at the time of a/c opening.

252.2. Darril  Nov 14, 2013 1:02:34 PM IST | 

As per my info…Aditya Birla money has a brokerage range of 0.3% to 0.5% , also they have some min brokerage of Rs.25-50 for order below Rs.100. Every time we trade need to transfer funds from s/b a/c to trading wch may take a day or 2 as it just being a broker needs another bank a/c to be linked to trading.

I agree HDFC Sec, has a structure of 0.5% on delivery , competitive with all leading brokers , also gives a seamless & hassle free trading demat and bank a/c for transactions

Hdfc sec does not allow to trade scripts less than Rs 2.50. when SEBI allows face value of the company can be Rs 1, 2, 5,10. It is against the interest of the customer who are trading in penny stocks. Updates by the bse or nse are not clearly notified to the customers. when compare to other brokers brokerage is high and fees are also high.

Stocks trading below Rs.2.5 or rather say below Rs.5 are penny stocks. These stocks bear a very high risk and volatility in market,due to the small size of the companies and their lack of transparency & relative newness, they are unpredictable, Some of these micro cap companies have no assets or operations and due to their low trade volumes, any size of trade can result in alarge % impact on the price of the stock..
As per the risk management policy of a company,the stock broker MAY reserves the right to refto provide the limit in Penny Stocks, hdfc securities does not trades in Z group securities and stocks trading below Rs 2.50.

Hdfc is on the low rank for trading due to their high charges.

hey jot....if u can help me to tell a leading broking/banking firm which has a lower brokerage than this?? other than local broker, i guess all are on the same competitive line. i personnaly feel though hdfc has a competitive brokerage but it gives me a seamless trading facility and hassle free trade and i know my trades & money is secured.
