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.

I am a customer for more than 15 years. Now I am feeling that the brokerage is very high. If an order for a scrip is split into several orders, they levied brokerage for each order at 0.05 or 25 rupees minimum. So an order is compulsorily to be made above Rs. 5000 for each order otherwise we will bear the huge brokerage.But in Karvy, they will charge brokerage at 0.03 or Rs.25 minimum levied to one contract note which could contain several executed orders. This will facilitate for orders more scrips in a single contract note. Secondly I was debited some amount in the Infy buyback and Wipro buyback. But in Karvy they debited the amount for Infy buyback but subsequently reversed it. Because of brokerage and other charges I am now away from this and all my active transactions are in Karvy. Now I want to substitute a broker in the place of Hdfcsec, pl suggest a good broker levying less brokerage.

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.

I had submitted joint application for DMat account for me and my spouse approx. 3 months ago. After submission there was no response form their side and on every follow up they give excuses like the person collected from is on leave or not contactable. Only when I sent a mail to them then they came back and said the form was received and is in process. Now they are asking the application form number to trace the form again. However same would be processed.

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 !

Hello Venkat,

Lets not talk about brokerage charges as it is similar to the other leading firms.

Further for annual demat charges you may contact demat support desk @ 022-61606161 extn - 5 or write to them on

Hello Radhika,

I am using HDFC Securities from last few years. I will accept with you for brokerage charges.
Here what my concern is - HDFC Sec is debiting as Depository charges. This is other than brokerage charges. They are deducting from my HDFC savings account.

So please suggest good Trading and Demat account.

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.
