This is another bad brokerage company. Whenever you have to place orders it should be greater than 1000. You can put a order for less than 1000. This is great disadvantage as when you want to buy shares at multiple prices you are not allowed to do. For trading software they charge high amount annually. (Sharekhan, Indibulls, Motilal Oswal provide free trading terminal).
