Zerodha, the most un-reliable broker. I agree they charge less but the service is third-class. Lots of wrong information in their site. I have lost money by looking at their mutual funds information and believing that there is no exit load for a fund. But when I redeemed they quietly said there is an exit load and deducted money.

Also they are asking me to deal with CDSL directly if i purchase shares/mutual funds directly.

Waste customer care, they provide standard copy-paste replies. which is not useful.

Don''t get in to the trap of cheap brokerage.

Not as good as what I heared about zerodha in all newpapers and media. Have recently opened an account at Zerodha and sharing my experience.

1. Doesnot provide margin facility even on DP holdings
2. When u transfer the funds thru their portal, the balance doesnot reflected. Everytime you have to make a call to Customer care and they do it mannually. Really time consuming and till that time, u can never put your orders (as no margin facility) and the prices also tends to change meanwhile.
3. At times their call center are too busy and when u have dependency on them only like the situation mentioned above, u are left with nothing.
(I myself have tried to reach one of the representative for the funds related issue and she reverted back after 2 hours).
(personally expreienced 2 out of 3 times the same problem)

Only low brokerage and nothing much.

There is more to it than just fees or costs. The data feeds are pathetic and incorrect several times a day. How can one make profit when the data feed itself is not 100% accurate. The customer care over a period of time has become arrogant and having a lack of knowledge about their own products as well as general trends in trading stock markets.
Algo trading comes at a high cost of Rs 500 per month for only enabling the option in the backend system 1 time. If you use the web platform, they are asking traders to do software programming tasks by way of APIs for which they are charging Rs 2000 per month. This is like highway robbery and cannot be recommended as an honest brokerage firm .. just my opinion

My experience with Zerodha's account opening process

I wanted to open new account & contacted zerodha. They have sent application form in my email id. After going through the form as a new entrant i was having questions to be clarified. I contacted them they gave the line to one Mr.Asif. He also told that whatever the clarification is there he can provide. But on my third enquiry he started telling the following

1. he is a sales person he doesn''t know the details
2. You put the signature wherever required & we will fill up the form.
3. i told that i want to understand the details if you are not aware you please give to any technical person, then he told you fill up the form in online & send it to us

I want to get clarification from zerodha 1. Signature is taken with a condition that everything is explained to the client but when we ask question the reply is i don't know and don't even have the courtesy to forward the call to a person who knows the technicality

when i asked whom i have to contact the next level he told i am the highest level is this the way to behave with the customer.

I am really upset with the way i have been handled by mr asif

As per SEBI guidelines broker has to explain all aspects in detail & get the signature of the customer for that.

My mother is having a icicidirect account. since she was involved in intraday more the turnover has crossed more than crore. I found the brokerage was heavy there. I was in the opinion that after seeing the service i can shift that account also to Zerodha but my before entry process itself has given me a bad experiance

no zerodha is not at all discount broker . they charge stamp duty @ 50 rs per contract you got it right fifty rupees per contract in this sense if they aren''t charging brokerage everything is settled in stamp duty . so I don''t found zerodha useful as discount broker as its total brokerage is at par with icici or axis securities . so my friends just don''t cum to this coclusion tht it is discount broker . no its not

Zero brokerage for Equity delivery. No nuisance call recommending this and that unlike other brokers. Customer support is kind of ok, we can tolerate due to other pros. It is worse with other full service broker that I have ended up losing money and hence zerodha is much better. Transparent pricing. If any issue upon escalating it gets sorted out. With other full service broker that is not the case and hence would recommend zerodha for long term investors.
