Very worst customer service. Your call will be never connected to their customer service. They will charge you minimum of more than 2500 per year including AMC and
Demat charges even if you are not doing any transactions.

Don''''t select Sharekhan

385. naval  Jan 19, 2014 12:17:01 AM IST |  Reply 

Brokerage charge is very discouraging ,i bought share 551 rs per share at execution price but in my portfolio it shows 555 rs per share which includes brokerage and STT. Same will be charged again when i sell my shares so more that 1% money lost in brokerage in buy and sell.
Soon going to try other online traders

Hii Naval,

I used to face the same problem with Sharekhan. But, i contacted my branch asking for help and they did reduced it for my comfort.

I suggest you to contact your nearest branch.

One of the best broking firm of the recent times with customer service at its best in the industry. ALso, Trade Tiger, one of the best revolutionary trading platform which can compete ODIN terminal of NSE. With its speed and features, it the best terminal in the industry.

Thank you.
