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.

Hi,

Please AVOID Kotak Securities!! I am an existing customer(DP ID with Kotak Securities: IN300214) and how I pity myself for choosing this bank. They will NOT tell you all the charges and hidden charges will start appearing in your account 3 months after your purchases. So, if you do not follow your transactions carefully, they will slowly bleed you.
AVOID at all costs.

Same problem in my case also, for opening 3 in 1 a/c they told 5000. But I have given all documents and I signed in all doc''s . Finally when I given cheque they asked me give cheque 20000, i asked y ? For opening a/c you have give 20000 in that time only we will open a/c. I surprised by this word''s becaI m working in union bank of india, central office , mumbai and I m doing trading from past 3 years with sbicapsec.

Why forget the fact that APART from brokerage on Sell, for each sale of script you also need to pay 0.04% or around Rs 30 minimum? Try trading with these numbers...:-) So, basically every time you sell you pay almost double the charges than others...

1. Charges are very high , which i realised after trading.
2. The sales executive lie a lot - during opening of account they show a very low brokerage, but on trading I find that lot of hidden charges were not explained .

Most bogus broker I have experienced. Don''t believe the person and the brokerage norms of this Brokerage firm. They are promising some thing when to open the account after that they telling some new norms and criteria regarding the brokerage. For best brokerage system you can open an account in "Trade Smart Online", which is the best brokerage company I have experienced in India. After cheating from Kotak Security I have switched over to Trade smart online.
