114.1. RKSV Securities Jul 3, 2015 8:51:14 AM IST |
There are two ways to do this.
1) You need to ask a passbook from the bank.
2) You can downthe statement which will have all the details. This would definitely serve the purpose.
I have an account with RKSV and am very happy with the services.
I am an active trader and I like RKSV.
However , I am a bit disappointed that RKSV doesn''t provide margin against shares for trading F&O. I have deemat account with Reliance and want to link it with my RKSV Trading account provided you give me margin against shares.

Let''''s take an example with Nifty Futures. Assume the exchange charges 39,895 per lot with 2.5 times exposure, you divide 39,875/2.5 = 15,958. So instead of 39,895, you will instead only require 15,958 per lot. Since you mentioned Rs. 50,000 in margin, 50,000/15958 = 3.13. So, with this amount you will be able to 3 lots of Nifty.
What does 39895 rupee mean .plz tell.me
107.1. RKSV Securities Jun 25, 2015 5:08:40 PM IST |
Dear Mr. Singh,
Rs. 39895 is the overnight margin per lot required by exchange to trade in a particular product (Span+Eposure). In your example it is Nifty. Since we provide intraday margins you can buy 3 lots of nifty under MIS if you have Rs.50000.
I want to open a trading & demate account. My mostly trade will be in future and approx trade will be maximum 50 per month. Can you please suggest wchich option will be better for me.
Most important, can I t-bills/govt bond as a margin for futures?
It would be great if you can give an example showing total expense on 1 future buy sell trade i.e. brokrage, STT, service tax, demate charges etc. etc.
I appriciate your assistance.
106.1. RKSV May 23, 2015 2:57:03 AM IST |
Thank you for posting your query. We suggest that you go for our Dream plan to start with, wherein you will be given 5 free trades each month for life. This is a great way to see if RKSV is right for you. After 5 trades, you get charged just Rs. 20 per order traded. Eventually, if you feel that it makes sense, you can move to any of our monthly plans.
Currently, we do not provide collateral or margin against T-bills or bonds. Once this is available, we will update our website immediately.
With regards to your queries on brokerage and other charges, the easiest way to get that answered is to our popular brokerage calculator.
Just type in the quantity of shares you would like to buy and sell for intraday. The calculator will show all charges in a transparent fashion.
Since i am outside india and i have no cheque leaves presently, so how i remit the account opening charges as i like to open a trading account online. Kindly advise.
105.1. RKSV May 23, 2015 2:53:27 AM IST |
Thanks for reaching out to us.
We are glad to inform you that we offer zero account opening charges if you open your account through Chittorgarh. Therefore, you do not have to worry about sending us an account opening cheque!
For linking your bank account with your RKSV trading account, your latest bank statement copy showing your name, account number, IFSC and MICR code will suffice. .
Best of luck!
Warm Regards, RKSV

How long does it take to open and close an account with RKSV? Is there a minimum amount required to start shorting shares? If I opt for RKSV''v pro plan for intraday equity what would be the monthly total fixed cost (brokerage + tax on brokerage)? How long does it take for funds withdrawal?
104.1. RKSV May 23, 2015 2:49:52 AM IST |
Here is how it works.
Once RKSV receives your account opening documents, your account will be opened within 2-3 working days. This time frame assumes that all your documents are proper and no additional requirements are raised from us (sometimes, clients forget to propely fill out the required fields).
For closing an account, all you need to do is send us an email at Email and we will process the closure ASAP.
Our Pro Plan is Rs. 3,999 + 12.36% service tax, which comes to Rs. 4,493.27/-. You can trade in equity and F&O under this plan.
You can withdraw your funds through your back-office login. The withdrawal will be done via NEFT/RTGS and should be completed by the next working day subject to T+2 Settlement.
Please write back to us if you have more queries. We are glad to help you.

RKSV has tied up with IL&FS to provide customers a demat account. In case you wish to link your existing demat account with RKSV trading account then you can do so by providing a Client Master Report (CRM) copy. Our DP charge is Rs. 22 per day per script irrespective of the quantity on selling delivery based shares.
Currently we do not allow trading in SLB. You can trade on equities, F&O, currency and MCX segments with RKSV.
I already have an account with Nirmal bang Securities and quite frankly, even though their charges are exorbitant, I am very happy wth their technology.
I have been reading that the terminals of discount brokers is riddled with issues related to false orders, stuck orders and so on, and they also do not provide timely support in case an issue arises. I would go ahead with opening an account with them if someone can let me know if their platform is ok, especially the mobile trading platform.

dear sir i see at ur website the low brokerage is Rs:8.00,what it means.
95.1. RKSV Apr 12, 2015 12:49:03 AM IST |
That''s a great question, and actually a question that gets asked us quite often!
On average, if you take the total amount we generate in revenue through our pricing plans during any given month and divide it by the total number of trades on that same given month, the number comes out to around Rs. 8 per trade.
