In june 2006, When I got my account statement of Oct’2006, I found out a debit of Rs. 14022.00 (approx.), when I enquired about it to my relationship manager of indiabulls, he told me that he invested this money in Futures & Options on 18/10/2006 in OPTSTK RELIANCE 26-OCT-06 1230 CA (Contract note attached) which got expired by itself on 26/10/2006 and all my money became zero.
I asked him that how can he do this without my permission and I will complaint against him in Indiabulls. He said that he cannot do anything and he already left the job of indiabulls. So, I met the office head of my account branch i.e. vashi, Mumbai and the office head told me that indiabulls cannot do anything as the person responsible has already left the job but he will look in the matter and will find some solution to it. When approx. four months gone and nothing happened, I filed my complaint on the registered email id of indiabulls i.e. Email about the same and I got the reply that they are looking in the matter. Then in approx. every six months I keep filing my complaint and always got the same reply that they are still looking in the matter. When I was not getting any positive response from indiabulls, then I search for higher authority and I found out that SEBI is the only of complaints. I also look for consumer forum also but found out that every complaint related to market dealt by SEBI only so didn’t opted for consumer forum. I filed my complaint in SEBI twice in the year 2009 by registering my complaint from their website but no one responded or entertained my complaint from SEBI. I again start filing my complaint on the registered email id of indiabulls.When the scores.gov.in comes into existence, I tried my indiabulls complaint through scores.gov.in and I am very happy to say that scores.gov.in starts taking action in the matter.
The launch of scores.gov.in is the best step in the financial market of India. They really listens. Now, from eight years I am fighting for my hard earned money but still got nothing. My case is under process in NSE with ref. no. NSE/ISC/2013/ 1307280875601322 (for proof) and I bet that I will never leave the culprit to go away so easily. I am proud to say that I am fighting from 8 years and found no support in my great country’s legal structure. To prove me as investor of indiabulls, My dmat a/c of indiabulls is DP ID 12029900, CLIENT ID 02957690 & online client ID is 289169.

I want to warn everyone through this forum about Indiabulls services. First their brokerage is one of the most expensive in India. I am 25 quantity) of option BANKNIFTY which is at 50 rupees per quantity, I will have to pay 200 rupees to indiabulls as buy and sell as brokerage. It means the price per quantity has to be more than 60 rupees for you to make profit. It is 20% increase in the value of the index. Now is there any trader who can work with this amount of brokerage. And then one day you will get a phone call of indiabulls RM saying he would like to give you suggestions for the trade. He say "Give me 1 month and I will show you results. Your stock will be up 20-30%". You think that since indiabulls has hired him and his daily job is to analyze market he may be expert at it. There is no harm trying him. You start trading on his advise. First few times he advises to buy and sell your stock in such a way that the whole profit goes as brokerage. Sometimes you even lose becayou pay more brokerage than make profit. When you call him he says "Ohh I didn''t know how much your brokerage was". You give him benefit of doubt. Then he says let trade in options. You say that you dont know much about options and have never traded in it. He says that you try it and you will learn. Now here starts your downfall. You dont know that prices of options goes to 0 and you can sometimes get nill aout of your investment. You find out that the RM lacks basic arithmetic sense. He does know what price and how much percent the option price has to rise to give profit to the client. But I also doubt his maths skills. I think there is a understanding between indiabulls and RMs where RMs responsibility to such money out of clients untill last clients Let me share my portfolio: End of January: Around 3.5 lakhs End of February: Around 1.5 lakhs :( . And during this time I didnt do any trading of my own. My experience of Indiabulls has been very costly. I am sharing this becaI dont want anyone to make mistake that I made and lose hard earned cash :( . Please beware of Indiabulls and his services. I am going to close my account with Indiabulls now.

I too have the similar experience but luckily i lose only 60K. I learned their dirty trick little early

Well, first I thank u for a detailed review. I''m quite experienced in such things. To be frank, every brokerage hoemploys these RMs....just keep away is my adivce to all. These people have a duty to take as much brokerage out of your tradings, they say secretively to each other..."he would have lost all his money trading so what''s the harm in taking majority of it" Trading is perhaps the easiest way to lose money...you can''t blame anyone...RM or anyone, the simple question is if an RM could earn you money they why is he doing a menial job for Rs 10,000 pm ? None can earn for you....only you and you can...read books on trading..there are many good books, search the net, Aswani Gujral, Ashu Dutt etc. have written golden books for all, only you have to read and practise those, it take a few years to lear trading...first year is for book trading..then put little very little, only 5% of your capacity...like every one needs to go to college and study for 20 years to get a job...in trading too..you have to study and work very hard...very hard....then money will come to you...you don''t have to run for it....all the best...

Though brokerage is on a higher side, it is quite easy to get the brokerage down by negotiation. After a month of heavy trading, india bulls got the brokerage fees down by at least 30%. Apart from that, i am always getting consistent help from the broker when needed which is really appreciated.

As you only want to open an account for trading I assume you are a high volume trader and actively participate in F&O. Try a budget broker like zerodha.com, account opening Rs. 200, no AMC if you do not open a demat account with them and brokerage is kept at a maximum of Rs. 20 per trade. You get free access to NOW which of all the trading terminals I have used has the least time lag.
Poor technical analysis Live Nifty Intraday Charts are without indicators. We can't synchronize it. Nifty/Sensex chart (manual)breeds confusion, you have to press refresh button all the time. Live equity (stock)intraday charts are accurate, but they are slow. Brokerage is high but negotiable. You are bound to lose.

The services of Indiabulls are worst. There staff as well R.M and Branch Manager are also confusing. I have cleared all the debits but even then the messasge of margin call comes. If I ask the reason nobody is ready to explain. Therefore according to my openion it staff must be educated. Over all trading service including software and webside is good. But borakerage is also higher than other companies.
Indiabulls is a bogus broker. They just play and spoil public money. Their management is only concerned about the brokerage the RM'S and BM'S earn. Thats their only motto. In the morning they will fix how much a branch will earn during the whole day on a particular day. Its amazing. They know the stock will not perform even they will say, "Sir, you buy this stock, it will earn you more" haha! quite amazing.
