we are a group of 7 investors using SBI, ICICI, Zerodha, 5Paisa, Reliance & Sasonline. among these Sasonline is the best when it comes to customer service and 5 paisa is the worst. Furthermore 5paisa website is just pathetic, even if we logout and re-login the portfolio holding stocks price does not get updated. Previous days closing price is always displayed the day.
We have send few email complaining about the website issues but we get reply mentioning that the issue is solved. They do not care to call and speak about the problems or solve the issues.

I am observing 5 Paisa from long time. There charging money for short margin, even when there is sufficient money. also, margin availability changes more than 4 times a day so, trader won't be knowing when it felled to short margin.

Just for checking I did perfectly within the margin availability, still they charged for short margin penalty. 5Paisa is fraud company.

If they didn't come back/not and clear on this or not, I will be going to report this to SEBI.

Last IMPORTANT!!! 5 Paisa is fraud, avoid 5Paisa

Scamsters. Withdrawal of gold was done on 4th of this month and yet not received in bank. They may conveniently misuse our funds like scam 1992. Not even a reply to messages left. The govt authorities should outright ban these kind of fraudsters.

It is since a month i am experiencing this kind of technical glitz. The app is automatically cancelling the order which ive placed. After complaint with screenshot proof, 5paisa team replied that ive done canceling from my side, and very frequently ive lost the amount in lakhs during the peak time trading. Both in the desktop and mobile app this problem often occurs. The response is very very worst. Above all the WORST OF WORST today, february 11, the customer executive response was shocking.... EVEN IF 10 PAISA LOSS OR 10 LACS LOSS DUE TO TECHNICAL ISSUES, 5PAISA WILL NOT TAKE CARE OF THE SAME.... Very very inhuman reply from the 5paisa people... finding the way to deal this kind of issue legally
