DO NOT open your account with Kotak Securities.. I repeat DO NOT open your account.. They are a bunch of crooks who will deactivate trading in a particaular contract because you are going to make money in it.. and when you call them they will say a plain SORRY. I would advice people to open accounts in various other agencies outside.. Their RISK TEAM DOESNT understand the meaning of RISK

HI, please all be careful about KOTAK SECURITY, they r very sharp to make money from their client, i got charge brokerage from my account without any trade and when i called them they said its advance brokerage charges, they r stealing money from account wih high brokerage and u will not come to know unless u cross check all ur transaction, when i checked i found just for buying one trade in option they charged me 390 rupees, thats only one side, i complained to KOTAK trader, customer service, escalation team and no one reply, i sent email to branch manager and CEO as well but no reply, so they know how KOTAK making money and making big profit just by seating on chair,

My faith in Kotak Securities is getting eroded due to some of my experiences. I want to understand the security system in Kotak securities. How safe is our money, and what are the systems in place so that someone (insider) will not able to siphon off our money and investment? what are the checks? Are they foolproof?

This is not for public consumption.

If any responsible person in the company can explain to me by phone or email it would be useful

Kotak securities are providing bad services and I found and I did not check a few months and some of my Mutual funds are not in my account. They did not know about it and I think they just care about their trading fees and not secure about our account.

Be careful from your relationship manager. Check with two stage security from their department. Never trust for TIPS on Share market. Do not allow them to invest your money on your behalf. Kotak has no grievance cell or department. They are very liberal in fraud case. They are very soft towards culprit. Take care about your money.

Very True. In my case Deputy Manager - Branch Sales Mr. Raut (AD-77, Salt Lake) explained to me that Margin trading is not very risky. He made me transfer my SBI shares to Kotak. Then the broker (Vikash) kept on buying shares in large quantities - at the top & sold them at the bottom. When margin calls came my SBI shares were systematically sold off. For one & half month I wanted the broker to close all the trades but he insisted on buying - saying this is how trading is done. Finally when he closed all the trades I had lost ₹1,70,000 approx. This happened at the Kolkata - Salt Lake branch office. And I have no idea where to go for help.

I forgot my password for login online to trading account. normally it should have been generated online. But Kotak Securities have in the name of providing better service have revamped the system and and now provided on hard copy mail which should take 4 to 5 days to reach you. That means one is blocked from operating the account for these many days. Additionally they have started a whatsapp chat to provide help to client. All useless fellows who do not have any discreation and also do not provide and escalation matrix to clients. Better to opt out from this and have an account safely with other trading platform. In all they are cheating their own clients.

Hello All,

I have an a/c in Kotak Bank & Kotak Securities, with the name Garima Baheti, but they are depreciating funds from my account, & kotak securities. Their salesman committed that it will be a "0" balance account and no charges will be deducted, but they deducted amount from my account, then I went to Kotak Bank, then they committed they will revert back the amount. But I haven't received till yet.

Then now they are asking to pay Kotak securities few charges, I really dont know what are the charges they are asking me to pay. I called them, they said I will they said Sms charges and several other charges. I have never availed these services. They are simply adding more and more accounts and charging extra cheese from all the accounts.

Please beware of them, and dont go for Kotak Bank account anymore.

Best Regards,
Garima Baheti
