Cheater broker..!!! They always take trades against you, it can be noticed if you're doing intraday trading with them. They are aggressively manipulating the prices and make sure you lose maximum money in trades. They are just bucket shop brokers running a business model with only intention to cheat and loot their clients. How they can take things for granted and just blame it on technical glitches all the time...?? People are paying real money to take trades and their careless attitude only proves, they have some other vested interests, rather than helping their clients.

They are already having enough complaints with the SEBI. I don't know how they are even operating this scam business. SEBI should put a raid on their premises and put a heavy fine on them and permanently ban them.

Dear Amit Bhupendra Nirmal

If your position is options buying and it is supposed to be under the ITM option, then you need to square off your position. otherwise, you should be eligible to buy equal qty of cash by physical delivery (Google the physical delivery of ITM option).

In such case, you don't have enough amount in your T Account, then zerodha helps you by square off your ITM position by themselves. Otherwise, a huge penalty will be imposed to you by NSE as per Sebi physical settlement rule.

If the above case is not applicable to you, then pls ignore my statement.

Zerodha is not reporting my short term losses even after selling all holding (1080 numbers bought from May 2021 to dec 2021 and sold on dec 2021) of a company at above 1 lakh loss. Another stock similar situation for above 33k loss.

It has been escalated to developers for more than 16 days and have understood that they have even not read my detailed explanations which happened over several days.
Anybody faced any simular problem with either zerodha or any other broker?. Tax season is just 2 months away. Since that is not shown in short term loss, i would have to pay unnecessary tax.

Do we have any other options to get the report from cdsl?

I have experienced that Zerodha does the manipulation in price (up and down price) for individual traders. I also cross-check about the future of usdinr, the price at each moment was different as showing on

I regret to say that very very poor service and no satisfactory answer for any of the queries. They are taking too much time to resolve the issue. They had taken more than one month to switch account from dormant to activate.After a period of one month still they are not able to reactivate the account. It seems zerodha is technically handicapped. I request to you please don't Trade with the Zerodha.

It's 4th time I'm facing this issue, whenever I tried to exit my position, it executes a new position, I didn't any GTT or stop loss but when I exit the position with sell or it executes that order into sell order. I lost a lot of money in that, when I call them there is not proper response from them. They screw up people for their brokerage. Highly atrocious, they don't have proper trading system

They are not discount broker, they are cheap brokers with no business and professional ethics. Investors should think ten times before opening account with Zerodha. SEBI should ban Zerodha and not tolerate their nonsense any longer.

I had transfered rs. 200/ towards my trading account opening charges. My account was not opened due to the reasons know only to Zerodha as i have not heard anything from them nor i received any login details. If my account was not opened then Zerodha should have refunded my account opening charges. This seema to be cheater company who show their chap mentality and lack of professional ethics for a small amount of rs.200/.
All prospective investors should be careful before opening account with Zerodha.

Zerodha is the worst share reading booking form in the country. I have every reason to make this comment.
Last week i posted the application form for share trading on line. I submitted all the details and scanned colors of all the documents asked by them. I also transfered rs 200/ towards account opening charges.
However, to my dismay, i did nit receive any acknowledgement not any communication from them.
It seems i have been cheated by this company and now i wish to demand refund if my application money of rs. 200/.
I am unable to contact customer care office as i get only recorded messages.
This is the company which has no business ethical standard and a strict legal action should be taken against them

I am trying to activate commodities segment for many months now. They don't help in this regard at all. After many months finally one person on call helped me update the KYC. Then my commodities segment was shown as active. But still i couldn't place trades and i get error message as client not registered. I tried calling call center, but nobody picks up for hours together. ZERODHA has become a useless broker. I finally did this with ICICIDirect, They did this in 24 hrs as promised.

Hello Friends,

The reason I am coming to this blog is to share a horrible incident happened with me, courtesy Zerodha.

On 2nd Feb, I took one trade on JUSTDIAL FUT via bracket order. There was enough margin money in my account to take the trade. I put SL and Target. In few minutes my SL hit and BO shown close from open orders Tab. I took some more fresh trades after that.
It was shocking for me when I saw 1BO and 1Normal order reflected in my positions. It was shocking to see the losses in Lacs. I checked in open order there was nothing pending. I tried to call Zerodha customer care, but no luck.
The next day I received a mail highlighting the –ve margin. I lodged a ticket and discussed this issue with Zerodha personnel. They could not explain me what was the issue. As I had done everything right from my side I was furious.
After this incident I received few calls from Zerodha, they said that the order was cancelled by NSE due to high volatility. (Execution range issue.) Still I am not getting the cause. It seems there system bug.
This has conceived a thought in my mind that Zerodha is a crook and they are playing with poor retail customers.
I am now thinking of raising this concern to NSE and SEBI.
Does anyone has faced similar type of issue? Please guide me.

Hi, had the same issue. Mine was a cover order (buy) for PC jeweller Futures.
When I expected a buy call my trade was not executed while the sell call (a part of cover order which had a stop loss)was immediately executed as a limit order shorting my position when the order given was of a buy. I lost 50k due to that trade. Has your issue got resolved yet? Will take them to consumer court regarding this issue.

Zerodha is now worst stock brokers.(1) one can not place order AMO regaular order on 09-08 AM to 9.15.AM (2)its hangs during working hours and one can not work on it like placing orders of sale and exists (3) Rate on Candle chart and Watchlist always differs. (4) interesting to watch candles on holidays even. (5) No customer care and no one attends the phone calls and even emails remains unanswered. Its not advisable to rely on the Zerodha. (6) Lastly Zerodha gives different data like rate , Chart (candles) on different computer at the same time which is very dangerous conditions and one can get heavy loss due to technical glitches.
Better to use chart of Zerodha and trading / investment with other broker.I have personally used Angle, Upstock and Zerodha and all the three broker are useless and not reliable.Hence going to switch over some other broker.
