Sharekhan really levies charges to the core. I strongly advise you to open an account with the discount brokers. Never think about Sharekhan.

If you use that software, can you assure that you can book 100% profit in all trades?

Sharekan uses software or hardware or footwear is not a matter to us....what matters is the profit. They can take any fancy name like tiger or bear or leopard, but how does it improve profits.

They open BSDA accounts (saying that AMC is zero( but send letters asking us to pay dmat fee of 450 Rs even if the holdings are only 10 k or below. Also, there are lot of fancy looking guys coming and telemarketing now a days and recommending to buy MF...the calls given by them are not working even in bull market. The decisions that I take personally are much more better than the recommendations given by the broker. Whenever we give a backoffice request, they take months and sometimes years to process. Usually, they canvas a buy call, but when we ask for some help like mutual fund RTA updation, they don''t respond. There is no uniform flow of information. The head office says something, and the salesman says something else...(just for the sake of sales at tht moment)..we got to cofirm everything first with the HO whatever they say, then only we need to proceed on anything. If you talk to broking office, on disputes, they say that the guy is transferred.......They are concerned only about money but not customer satisfaction. Remember customer has numerous choices, brokerage houses...
