The brokerage of ICICI for common investor is very high. This is the reason now we are trading with other banks and brokerage house, who are chaging 20 paise. 55 paise brokerage is taking away the entire gain of the investors. It is also against the law of equality for common investors.

Brokerage should be lower. Apart from brokerage charges this one is excellent. Perhaps others can not match its quality.
