HDFC Securities charge is very high. Moreover, they don''t disclose all the charges at the time of account opening. The high level of charges don''t come with any value. Website is really slow and not user-friendly. Customer service is poor. I suggest that don''t go for HDFC; you will be paying very high charges for absolutely nothing.

even looking for account number is difficult in new site
3. Your Trading charges for Intra day are higher

I would like to throw some light into the issues I face while I trade in HDFC SEC, The brokerage fees they charge is so great that there wont be much left in your profit margin. For penny stocks they charge .5 paisa per unit. For eg: if you bought 25000 shares of .40 paisa, they will charge you .05 paisa per unit which is the maximum fluctuation level of such stocks.. and the brokerage charges could come upto 1250 Rs. and you need to pay the rest of the brokerage from your hard earned money. its a company which is in for looting people. Actually they don''t posses the gentle man contract of charging minimal for their services and as we traders trade to make profit. not to feed some company. Further the amazing mobile APP they provide to do trading on the go. This APP wont show you your current status after selling. It will only get updated regarding the current days orders only after midnight. So if you bought some stock in the morning it might be reflected in your APP, but next sell order or purchase order remains in the air. not in this app.

Brokerage for Equity SIP is similiar for trading in equity shares on regular basis

However structure is update in HDFC Securities site so you may refer the same & brokerage charged by HDFC Sec is not the least but lesser than many in the market what i have expirenced.

Further, i have observed the settlement happened on timely basis as the process of T+2 (working days).

Poor website design, difficult to navigate, multiple glitches - reported several times without any correction, Merged two different types of screens creating a clutter. Getting reports of Txn erratic and cumbersome. Difficult to sell MF. Screen shows a box with Unit (and some value like 9.89 with no clue what it denotes even the phone rep of HDFCSEC did not know what it meant), another blank box has a Facilitator number- whatever that means, again with no clue on who is to provide this number. Customer care is slow to respond, does not do its homework and is clue less about various options of investment. Often obdurate and start speaking about company policy without listening to the investor.

They are trying to be good among worst within India, as compared to other international brokerages plateforms like TD Ameritrade. These Indian players are not looking at all at internationationally available trading tools and plateforms available at international level.

Nothing good about this trading platform.
HDFC should really think of reviving this platform. If nothing else they can copy ICICI Direct.

HDFC Securities persons opening accounts with cheating, no charges for opening, no annual charges. once apply, they are deducting money from account without prior intimation. HDFC managers also cheating to apply for new account. You are classic member apply for classic card, after receiving classic card telling that min need to maintain 1 lakh otherwise 850 charges. 100/- quarterly charges mandatory.

I have a zero balance salary account, why i have to switch to that account. all HDFC agents and managers cheating
