I am holding an account with motilal oswal . Actually the brokerage on paper is very attractive but when you trade it is pinching in many cases it comes to even INR 5 % to 25 % of traded value . when you complain about it they will show some 1980 - 1990 rule to justify

My username is E621165 and name is Kalpana Kucheria.

About a month ago I submitted my account closure documents at the T Nagar Branch, Chennai along with my CMR. I received a call after 2 weeks saying that the closure was not possible as there was a credit balance of 651 in my ledger and 500 in my margin. I transferred the ledger balance myself and when I contacted the customer care on 91-22-39982515, they told me to get in contact with a person called C Jayakumar from the T Nagar branch. I called him up and he assured me that the transfer of margin balance would get completed at the end of that day. Its been 10 days today and C Jayakumar is still telling me that the transfer will take some more time. All I want you to do is transfer my margin credit balance to my Bank account and close my MO acc forever. Why can''t you do that for me? And this C Jayakumar has stopped answering my calls since the last 3 days. I called him from a different number and he picked it up immediately.

I want you to immediately process my account closure and ensure that my shares get transferred to my new broker IL&FS before Friday.

What sort of a pathetic stock broker are you?

Even IIFL has also changed brokerage pattern, now they are charging minimum Rs 25/- per scrip

There is recent change in the brokerage charges of Motilal Oswal. Now they are charging atleast Rs 20 on delivery for every trade. This recent surge in brokerage charges is not competitive in the market.

The MOSL agent agreed for .2 and .02 brokerages to make me register. Once after I registered and started trading, it came to my notice that, I was charged with .5 and .05 brokerage. tried contacting customer service with no success. Even the MOSL agent didnt help. Never go for MOSL. Its a trap.

One of the worst websites , very bad user experience website
No direct fund transfer from reputed banks. They inefficient ways
Acct Maintenance is highly charged to the customer.
Brokerage is high for cash market, its useless there , better choose any other broker.
if you are high volume trader with small profit margin, you profits will be eaten by the this broker. Not at all recommanded to trading with this broker, No proper recomendations /advises from broker on daily basis.
Overall very bad one.

Rated 'Very Poor' in all category.

Your company is associated with Master Trust Financial Services. This is worst company in India. They are thug and always plans to rob money of the client. They charge so many hidden charges from the client. they even do not write service tax code no on their contract notes doing evasion of service tax of central govt.

I had a very bad experience with Motilal. Are you working for MOSL to give this rating. Or have you ever tried any other dmat accounts?

have you ever compared the brokerage structure of brokerage house. you will be amazed. while all other brokerage houses charges say xx % or Rs.XX WHICHEVER IS HIGER. whereas
in brokerage firm the brokerage structure is the opposite. Irrespective of the segment i.e. NSE/BSE share/commodities futures/ forex futures,and irrespective of the number of shares/lot size, your brokerage is fixed - Rs.20 on the buy leg and Rs.20 on the sell leg that is all! + the usual statutory levies - SERVIC E TAX, STT, TURNOVER CHARGES, STAMPDUTY which is common for all brokerage houses. Try and see for your self the difference.

They have provided a breakeven calculator on their website in the link called PRICING which is really a wonderful tool for traders to decide the return on investment beforehand to offload a position and profit from it. go to their site and see how your broker has so far looted you.

I found brokerage high for my consumption, I wonder how rich these brokers were since they charge brokerage each time, whether you gain or suffer a loss. If more lower middle class people have to be invited to join the equity market, brokerage should be substantially reduced. Particularly, that minimum brokerage of Rs.20/- which they charge is really dampening for small time investor/traders like me.
