Worst Trading service provider.
Though they are charging a huge amount for brokerage,they charge for depository charges also.The HDFC Securities branch managers are not that approachable and misleading.Stocks suggested by HDFC are not worth investing.

hdfc demat & depository charges apart from the commissions and taxes on every trade also include a monthly depository fee which is always arbitrary and doesn''t make sense. I even asked them to provide receipts but they never comply !
317.1. radhini  Feb 3, 2017 6:22:47 PM IST
My friend, you can contact HDFC Bank Depository services @ Email for any query pertaining to your demat account. Guess you will get your response to the above concerns raised.
317.2. Madan Mohan Dora  Feb 4, 2017 4:43:03 PM IST
We are paying brokerage and other taxation charges.In addition to above depository charges are charged to trading account customers which eats the profits of small traders.
May I know what is the percentage of depository charges are charged.It is an additional charges to customers.
317.3. Venkat  Feb 22, 2017 10:21:19 PM IST
I am also using the HDFC Securities for trading. But the problem is Brokerage is also very high. AMC charges are more and again they are collecting the Depository Charges from the small investors also.

Please suggest any good Trading and Demat account. Less brokerage and free Demat account.

I dad been with them for 11 months. All b & s). Actually it is not free but 6000.00/2500000=.24%. Thereafter .50%. No Candle stick, SMA, EMA, Financial ratio comparison. They using old TCS software. But financial dealing is clean as I am a HDFC bk customer. I never follow their technical stock advice except twice and I lost money. Their suggestion on fundamental stock never tallied with mine as I analyze stoc on 4 types of graphs and on 11 ratios. Best to avoid but it depends on individual discretion. I asked them to stop stop sending SS but in vain.

hello dear....see the brokerage of hdfc securities is 0.50% on delivery subjecting to min Rs. 25/- which ever could be more would be charged. I feel its pretty good. They have also come up with new system trading interface which quite better i guess... i do not trade much but i feel comfortable with such broker as their services seems good. i haven''''t tried out their recommendations though, but m a satisfied customer.

Hi, as per my view, i believe brkg with HDFC securities 0.5% on delivery for above mkt value of Rs. 10/- & 0.05 paise per share on below mkt value of Rs.10/- which is quite competitive amongst leading firms same is updated in their website.

further i have received a proper assistance from their customercare team.

Brokerage Charges are a BIG LOOT, there will be hardly anything left with us, if we deduct Brokerages, Taxes + On short term Capital Gains Taxes

Customer Service is a useless features which tell the same thing what we know. They did not bother to apologies for the outage that occurred due to which we had to bear losses

Maintenance Fees is not yearly but its HEAVY Quaterly Fees

Web usability is not customer friendly all. It gives info and data what we don''t want and doesn''t provide what we need. Looks like their IT & Functional consulting team is totally cut off from the customer need Point of View.

May be they need to learn from the new players in the market, soon looks like the smaller player are going to over take them if they don''t pull up their socks

What is the demat account opening charge in hdfc securities.
I had opened an account for my wife in hdfc and the account opening charge rs. 5999 was debited from my wife bank account
When I search the demat account opening charge rs. 999 shows in the web site
Please suggest what can I do now
304.1. sondesh mukherjee  Oct 27, 2016 7:28:41 PM IST
HDFC sec has different account opening scheme, my trading account also opened in 5999 scheme where i enjoyed the benefits of Free Transaction Turnover of Rs. 25 Lacs in delivery segment valid for 1 yr from account opening.
Stock Recommendations & Market Updates on Mobile (Insta SMS) for 3 months.
even E-Invest Right Magazine subscription for 1 Yr"

& there are no such above benefits under 999 scheme

Today at about 12.30 PM, hdfcsec wesbite failed to work. This limited the access of people to the wesbite as a result of which intraday orders could not be squared off. This would have caused loss of huge amounts to various investors, atleast the people who had shorted communication stocks.
On speaking to customer care, no comments were made on who will bear the loss of investors because of the website failure.
They need to follow a mechanism so that investors are compensated for their hard earned money.

I am having DEMAT account linked with my NRO account. Can I linked it with NRI account?If yes, does it charge more fees? When I tried to subscribe to IPO through online platform, I was denied. I was told that you have not subscribed for IPO!!!// Isn''''t this carzzzyyy answer? Customer service representative told that I need to sign some form and send origional hard copy to India!!. Very high charges also...Only one good thing is that now they are giving good tips ..HDFC bank interest rate on FD is now also one of the lowest. Cannot put now more money in this bank..Looking with some other bank like AXIS or Kotak if possible..
