Today at 11:19 am& 11:21am at 20.6 & 19.3 rs I bought 2 lot of nifty 10800 PE . When I sell at 107 RS at12:10pm I am unable to sell due to zerodha technical error(attached screenshot) Then I call number of times to call support number.but you guys are not responding .one time you pick up the call and after 07:00 min.waiting then you cut the call. Due to this my profit down from 13162.50 rs to 6607.50rs. So who will bear this loss? This is now frequent issue from zerodha.

Complaint to Zerodha
I was placing BO order to short sell 200 TCS at about 9:30 AM at that TCS was quoting around 2034, but my order had executed at 9:45 AM @ 2023. After that also, I was not able to exit the position when TCS was quoting around 2027 to 2030. At that time, the kite was not taking any order and position was also not shown. So, I incurred a loss of 4200 rs. Kindly reimburse the said amount.

How should I complain this at NSE
62.1. nagaraj  Feb 27, 2019 14:58
These guys from ZERODHA will never learn, they are now focussed more on introducing new APPS, and extract more feees,
They are least bothered about the whole trading platform going down and cauusing lakhs and crores of rupees to futures/options traders ,
Guys, just shift from this zerodha to some other

61.1. avishek das  Feb 27, 2019 11:02
they are protecting the big players time and again almost daily and betraying the retail investors like us. they have lost their credentials. nitin must reply and resolve it. somebody is there in zerodha team who has been bribed. find out him.

I had to incur a loss because of the negligence of Zerodha/NSE. I am sure both will not help so planning to raise this with SEBI. Zerodha says I have signed on paper which says server issue is not there problem.
58.3. Prem sagar  Sep 6, 2018 09:43
Same problem. We need to start a campaign against them in web media.

Raise complaint with NSC with all details of the issue caused by zerodha

Zerodha is doing fraud with their customer.
Today I sold 2000,1000 share of Dish TV putting stop stop loss of rs 1.
But stop loss hitted at .90 and .40.
When my order was executed at that time SL shows correct what i have putted but after some time SL triggered automatically.

They are not allowing trade in most of the bank nifty strike prices. One week ago, they were allowing trade only in strike prices between 26200 and 26800. In such cases hedging of positions is not possible and chances of loss are huge.

One of the worst trading platform is zerodha. every now and then stops working. SHAMELESS management just posts sorry message.
51. Praveen Verma  Jan 7, 2019 08:52 Reply
zerodha does not work many times during the trading hours. it should be made responsible for losses incurred due to this.
50. Abhishek  Dec 25, 2018 10:48 Reply
Zerodha's support has gone from bad to worse. Tickets are just auto-responded with no time line for a resolution. Most of the times multiple follow-ups are needed to get a simple thing done. At times resolution is provided and then they pretend as if the problem did not exist at all.
The issues that were unsatisfactorily handled by zerodha include:
- Lack of transparency and delay/denial in payout of Opentrade, referral and 60 day challenge;
- Rejection of withdrawal request despite adequate free balance unless follow-up made (their response they don't know how rejection message was sent);
- Problems in contract notes (in early days); their response that they did not send the erroneous contract note;
- Zerodha's initial policy on compulsory early square-off in FNO contracts of stocks that SEBI mandated to be physically settled (high handedness and an action just opposite to what the regulator dictated);
- Arbitrary restrictions of NSE launched option strikes and contract maturities that can be traded;
- Delay in crediting the trading account with proceeds of MF redemption and misrepresentation that proceeds were received from AMC after the trading hours; when issue was raised to BSE they came back offering apology with a request to withdraw the complaint.

The above list is not exhaustive but only an indication that everything is not as rosy as is being projected.

No. 1 shitty trading broker and worst app. Its been more than six months I had been using this app. Whenever I place a limit order it gets executed on the market price instead. Fraud no.1
PRASAD BHAVANA is the first example to all . Because of these fraud people he lost all his money of about 40 lakhs last year.

Zerodha a worst brokerage house have no intention to resolve the investor issue.. when you place a request of payout it will take a week time to get the money back to your account, their profit calculation is malfunctioning...i Placed a payout request on 20th October status of the payout states amount processed by they are a liar it never never credit to bank account.. incur heavy loss due to their pathetic service.. completely avoid zerodha
