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.

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 2:02:34 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.

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.

Had a terrible experience with HDFC wherein my account was not opened till 20 days after filing the form and later had to send at least 15 mails to get them to act on the same. Even after this I was told that their agent had not properly got the form signed from me and that they could not open the account unless I provide them with all the documents again.

Rated 'Very Poor' in all categories.

247.1. R Gandhi  Jun 10, 2013 1:24:23 AM IST | 

@ Provas- Hdfc securities facilitates currency trading , but not through their online trading portal.One can activate the currency trading priviledge in the trading account with them and place order over the phone with the dealer or to trade online one needs to log into NSE''s nowonline.com website, they will provide you with username & password .i suggest you write to their customercare help desk @ Email & may seek assistance for same.

Trading in HDFC Securities is a satisfactory experience for me. Website is comprehensive,giving maximum info and product details, easy to understand and portfolio is self explanatory.Cost price and current price, realised/ unrealised profit/ loss are available in portfolio. also they have a 24 hours (mon- sat) available customer support service for us.

Borkerage charges are very high. They are not folloiwng the charges specified in portal and dont know how the system will calculate.

Most of the times i didnt understand on what basis they are calculating brokerage. Same kind of volume and script they have charged diffrently.

FOr each sale transaction charging extra 25rs other than brokerages and which is not specified any where. I have enquired about this and did not get propoer response from HDFC and telling that this is for all the customers.

243.1. Swamy S  Mar 09, 2013 5:44:43 PM IST | 

Brokerage for delivery segment with Hdfc securities is 0.50% or min Rs.25/- with ceiling of 2.5% on transaction value on both buy & sell on each trade. and for intraday segment it is 0.05% or min Rs.25/- with ceiling of 2.5% on transaction value on each trade
For Eg- If you purchase 100 shares on delivery @ Rs. 45 / share. Total transaction value = Rs.4500/-

Brokerage. 4500) which comes to Rs.22.5 is lesser than Rs.25 , so Min.Rs.25 will be charged on that trade, taking into consideration it is not exceeding the ceiling of 2.5%

refer to their brokerage structure- http://www.hdfcsec.com/FAQ.aspx?docid=201008101155287343750

There are dp transaction charges on selling the shares from the demat account which is levied by hdfc bank.

I am having dmat account with HDFC securities.
I am doing trading with phone for ordering the trade. The problems are that the staff at Madras branch are not attending the call. The reason I presume is due to over flooding of calls from the customers.
In share trading every second counts. Can you make arrangements to speedy attention of customers in order placing.
