Kotak charges very high brokerages. When you contact customer care, they say visit your branch for brokerage details. They have also reduced prepaid brokerage plans! Too expensive...thinking of closing account

Kotak will make you fool if you directly go to them and ask for opening demat account and there customer support is very poor they will not tell you clear reply. They always reply that you have to go to branch for any thing you ask for.

Very very high brokerage for retail investors with the 21/- minimum brokerage of one executed order.

If you invest 1000/-, buy brokarage sell brokarage and DP account ITS SEVEN VERY VERY HIGH).

Then how can you earn profit.
If you want to invest 1lack rupees in stock market you won''t invest on only one stock on one day so brokerage is very very high.

Even though you got 10% profit you need to pay 7% brokerage so waste of using it.

I''m trading in Kotak Securities for more than 2 years. I didn''t have any problem initially, but, whenever I''m going for some customer support I''m seriously disappointed. I recently opted to change my offline account to an online account. I have given all the necessary papers there is no proper response from them whenever I''m trying to contact. They actually told the processing time would be 2 days, but, its been 15 days since i submitted the forms. I''m seriously disappointed with their service. If no proper action is taken in the next few days, i have no other option than quitting Kotak Securities.
