I opened my account 15 days back Infact processing and account opening were very fast. I was communicated with necessary details of passwords, pincode etc. They sent their pointer also through my mail. But after this nobody assisted me in installing " pointer". No body guided me how to trade online. After sale service is very bad.

No doubt this is best depositary service in all aspects as I had tried Reliance , SBIMART, IIFL also.
Advantages are very low brokerage, very clear mail reports regarding transaction, nice trading pointer, ventura wealth mobile app and very clear website like

Only one negative thing is that trading till shares not deposited in demat account is risky which is the only advantage I founf with India Infoline , there you can sell on from next day

I''m a new customer. During very short span of time, I find Ventura''s services are better amongst other brokers. Brokerate is low and any call during the day is picked-up and responded immediately. I hope, they should continue to achieve customer''s satisfaction at a faster rate!

Never go with Ventura commodities.

There is warst difference between demate and commodity services.

Ventura commodity services, informing you square off your possition.

However, Securities services are faithful. But it also can be happens.

I had a acoount with ventura past two years at chennai branch.They charge ver less brokerage Intraday: 0.01% selling side only , Delivery:0.1% and they provide mobile app also.Pointer software is really excellent. Charts in the software are really good.Dealer side support in chennai ventura is good.

Dear Anand JJ!
Please dont fool people. Be it chennai or mumbai, service and support of Ventura is very very pathetic. Most importantly, there system hangs/stop responding when you want to trade from 3 - 3:30 i.e. the most important time. They require hefty margins in order to give that 0.1% brokerage but with other discount brokers there is no margin requirement.
95.2. Jayanti Lal Shah  May 21, 2015 11:25:30 AM IST
Worst service ever... No port folio tracking. No news or results sharing. You finally remains in a black box :(
94. Akshat Kakkar  Apr 28, 2015 5:27:23 PM IST Reply
Brokerage of .35% for deliver and .05% for intraday. But for stocks less than Rs. 100 price, for intraday brokerage is 5 paise. So if you buy 1 share of Rs. 20, your intraday brokerage is 5 paise and not 0.05%. 5 paise on Rs. 20 i.e. .25% intraday is too much. And if you bought shares like Dr. datson labs which are good shares but price of Rs. 5 or 6, then intraday brokerage become .05paise/Rs. 5 = 1% !!!! Height is that they dont communicate this to the customers.

Website is very slow during the market opening hrs and market closing hrs.

Initially there were polite enough to respond on chat or email, but slowly they dont reply actively on chat also. As website dont work that effectively, so if you want to place order by chat, specially for squating off your intra day trade, they are not that active and serious to take a timely action.

They have no information of how to check ipo allotment status and instead say that "you will received sms once allotted"!

In case of divestment sale of shares of REC they were not aware of at what bid price is currently bid going and so at what bid price should one apply. They infact insisted that you apply on starting range of 315 only. And the finally the cutoff was 333!!!

They dont communicate if any right issue comes up, even if shares of that company are there in your portfolio.

Besides, they dont give recommendations for short term or intraday ( only 2 - 3 in 6 months).

And most importantly, they dont track your portfolio. Many of my shares fell 40% or more from peak, but no intimation and no info from their side.

So, if everything I have to manage myself then why am I with them? I should instead choose a discount broker so that atleast I will on brokerage and all this headache too as I will be knowing in first place that I have to do everything on my own.

Total loss becaof there negligence : around Rs. 1 Lakh 60 Thousand and that too when my input capital was only around 6 Lakhs.

I agree with you. I have also lost around 20000 becaof there negligence.
