For commodity peoples: , stamping charges high, if we add brokerage and stamping charges, then it comes to 0.02% and turnover charges Rs.490 per crore, i think Zerodha is not good.......They say Brokerage as .01%, but totally it comes to .025%. Its my view...anybody can support me....

Which is better? Zerodha or Ventura

Ventura offers brokerage of 0.10 paisa/share for delivery and 0.01 paisa for intra day.(with Rs 5000 refundable deposit plan)

Zerodha take DP charges /sold delivery. Does Ventura take DP charges too?

Ventura Doesn't take AMC.

Zerodha takes Rs 9 + service tax for money transferred from saving bank account.

Does Ventura take the same?

Whose after sales service is good?

Hi

Currently I am associated with Fullerton securities since 5 years. Now Fullerton is closing its operations and asked their customers to either shift to Edelweiss or open a new Demat a/c for transfer of stocks. Kindly recommend me which AMC will be best for me.

Fullerton is providing me both online and offline facility to me. I am more comfortable with online but need both. I intending to shift to reliable and trustworthy AMC with excellant customer support. I have to take my decision before 10th May as Fullerton is closing its operations on 23rd May 2013.

I really appreciate your honest and sincere recommendation on the same.

Thanks & Regards
