I have opened trading a/c with RKSV in Aug 2012 and found excellent services in all respects.
Many posts on this are on traderji. Breakeven is after 100 F&O trades on Zerodha. Cash it depends like you said. 20 Rs has service tax of 12.3% and so does 1947. Brokerage calculator is on both sites. Transaction charge is lower on RKSV.

What is the breakeven point between RKSV and Zerodha?
Ideally at Rs 20/trade if I do over 110 trades (Rs 2200) in a month then it makes sense to RKSV. But with Zerodha also not all trades are changed at Rs 20 as their brokerage changes are "0.01% or Rs. 20 per executed order, whichever is lower".
