I am from Kolkata i would like to open an account with RKSV. The only problem i see is that you don''t have any branches in Kolkata. In such case I will not get any local branch support. Please help waiting for your reply.
I wil be very happy if help me to open an online trading account with you my query if I open an online trading account would I have to sign power of attorney is is mandatatory or you can offer online trading account without or any alternative
85.1. RKSV Feb 24, 2015 8:16:23 AM IST |
If you open an account with RKSV then it is mandatory to sign power of attorney. Since it helps in the pay in of the shares, there is no alternative available.
Hi Sir, I have few of questions. 1. From previous answers I learnt I can link my existing Demat account from another broker with RKSV account? In that case below charges are waived off? And opening charge also zero if I open in this site right? Demat account Opening One Time): Rs 300 Demat Account Annual Maintenance AMC): Rs 400 Per Year
2. I''m not clear on Rs. 22 for transaction fees for delivery. You mean, If I hold demat account with another broker, I have to pay this transaction fee, That to only on sell side to move my shares from demat to trading account right? 3. If I only buy shares no need to pay this transaction fee right? 4. when I sell, I have to pay 22 per script per trade irrespective of lot/number of shares right?
84.1. Priya Jain Feb 13, 2015 7:13:34 AM IST |
1. You are correct. If you only open trading account with RKSV its free for our visitors.
2. There are some challanges with keeping your existing demat account, though you do not pay AMC but there is an additional cost. You can find this detail at below page:

Dear RKSV, I want to open an account with you as i am a customer of icici securities and there charges are very high. I want to clarify that how can i transfer the securities which are kept with my icici account to your account and charges for the same.I also want to know the charges of selling those securities.And since i have registered via chittorgarh.com am i eligible for discount you offered ? Regards
83.1. RKSV Feb 10, 2015 2:47:54 PM IST |
Dear Mr. Sarvesh
You will be able to open your trading account free of cost since you have registered through Chittogarh that is the offer you get since you have come through Chittogarh. You need to submit your Client Master Report of ICICI Securities. We will activate the beneficiary facility for you. We will give you our pool account number to which you can transfer your shares and sell it through us. You will be charged Rs. 22 for every sell of delivery of shares per day per scrip. Let us know your details so that we can have our representative call you and help you with the process.
y question is slightly similar to below but still want to clarify once. I have Demat Account with HDFC. So if I make RKSV beneficiary on that account will there be charges to me for this? Also, as you said once RKSV is beneficiary on HDFC Demat Account, I can buy and sell both using RKSV and brokerage will go to RKSV and not to HDFC. So HDFC will charge only Annual maintenance charge, But HDFC has a condition that if we do more than 10 transactions/month then AMC gets reduced from Rs 750 to rs 500. So will the trades done via RKSV as beneficiary get counted in those 10 transctions of HDFC Demat or not?
81.1. RKSV Feb 10, 2015 2:50:58 PM IST |
You will not be charged just to activate the beneficiary account with us. Since, you will buy and sell through RKSV, HDFC will not at all come into picture until you ask us to transfer the shares in your HDFC bank account. Please share us your contact details so that we can have our team call you and help you with other clarifications.
Good Day Sir , I want some details , 1. I would like to open an account with you (trading and demat) ,At present Im at Kuwait , can I do things online ?

Hi, I am doing research to open my first Online trading account. I want to trade in Future and option segment in NSE (Mainly in NSE Option-stocks and index). So my main concern is brokerage charged on this segment. As a new to this can you please let me know when you charge Rs. 20 brokerage per lot is that for both buying and selling an option?
74.1. RKSV Jan 14, 2015 3:58:45 PM IST |
As a beginner in trading, we would recommend you our Dream plan which is the most popular plan of RKSV as the first 5 trades every month are brokerage free. In this plan on options trading, you will be charged Rs. 20 per order irrespective of the the lot size on both buy and sell side.
SINCE RKSV DOES NOT HAVE DP SERVICES, IT IS WITH ILFS , SUPPOSE A CUSTOMER KEEPS HIS DEMAT AC SAY WITH ICICI SECURITES ANOTEHR WITH ILFS HOW DOES IT GOING TO AFFECT AT THE TIME OF BOTH BUYING AND SELLING RELATED TO CONVENIENCE AND COST FACTOR.
73.1. RKSV Jan 14, 2015 4:02:41 PM IST |
Please note that you can have only one Primary demat account linked to your trading account.
1) If its with ILFS (POA account) - Then you can buy & sell shares from RKSV. There would be a transaction charge of Rs.22 per srip per day for the same.
2) If demat account is with 3rd party (As mentioned, ICICI) then shares would get credited into this demat account on delivery and would not be available for selling through RKSV.
Best Regards, RKSV

71.1. RKSV Jan 9, 2015 4:29:40 AM IST |
I am very sorry to hear that. We charge Rs. 250 account opening fee. If you opt for a demat account, our one time fee is Rs. 300 and an AMC of Rs. 400. However, if you already have a Demat account, you can link it and you will not have to pay any one time fee or AMC''s. These fees are there becawe clear through IL&FS, and these are their mandatory fees. We pass on the fees to IL&FS.
We hope that alleviates your concerns. And if you open an account through chittogargh, your account opening fees are waived. We are sorry if one of our representatives gave you wrong information.
