Very bad professionals from Zerodha especially Nithin Kamath and Venu Madhav. Never open an account with zerodha.
I lost 6.6 K from Zerodha and they are not ready to refund the money.
On March 26th i sold 70 qty of Arvind Fashions and closing balance was supposed to zero.
Next day 30 qty of Arvind Fashion was still available in my demat account and price was going down, i put the sell order as i didnt want to incurr huge loss and and their poor system allowed me to sell 30 quantity.
Their bogus software considered it as short sell and went for auction and bought the share at very high price and lost around 6.6K. When this was happening, i never got an email alert and sms that short sell happened for this stock.
Extra 6.6 K was deducted from my account for the mistake of Nithin Kamath's software.

Please let us know if i can file a complaint with SEBI for the below issues against Zerodha
1. Adding 30 quantity of shares automatically and creating panic to the customer.
2. Not sending any alert that 30 quantity was a short sell and no alerts that shares will be brought via auction.
3. Creating a loss of 6.6K for the traders and not ready for refunding a single penny.
4. Arguing that there is no mistake or software issues and creating unnecessary tensions to the customer.

Never recommend Zerodha as their platform crashes, creating huge loss to the customers and playing with customer like the one mentioned by me by just adding few stocks to our account .

Bad platform for all traders and no ethics with Zerodha.

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.

I have been observing that zerodha intentionally selling the at lowest price as possible. At 3:15 my equity shares was locked by zerodha and as per their policies their time of selling the shares is 3:22 PM. At 3:22 my share value was Rs 31.10 but they didn't sell my share and once it touched to the lowest value 30:60 they suddenly sold the shares which cause me huge lose and it's not the first. I have oberseved this thing many times. They always sell the shares lowest price might they get some commission. But this time I want to file a complaint to SEBI regarding such dirty games which they are playing.

I opened my Zerodha Account almost 6 months before and started purchasing of shares recently. The shares purchased are not appearing in the the portfolio in my mobile. How to resolve the issue.

I recently won an arbitration claim with 34.5 lakh rupees of relief. Zerodha unauthorizedly squared-off my F&O positions on the pretext of loss. My total losses are nearly 65L. I intent to appeal further in court. At the same time I was been recommended to file a financial offenses case against Zerodha. For this I need few more clients who faced challenges due to Zerodha. If you are one such client, please reach out to me.

Complaint regarding commodity account opening segment and withdraw an amount of 10000/- has not been processed.
Company is so irresponsible that it can't be suffer. False information are provided by customer care. Even I feel they fraud in brokerage by doing miscalculation. If it will continue then one day Zerodha will be no more by doing these types of illegal activities.

Very bad service providers, unable to withdraw money since 6days. Why they take so much time? I will definitely switch my account. The service is pathetic and worst.

I am a zerodha user I have no complaints about NSE but BSE I have got d complaint.

I had bought 181 shares of pankajpiyush(BSE) and it was there in d holdings Wen the price raised I put d LTP as limit and opted for sell, but it didn't get sold so I cancelled it and opted for sell at mkt price (but only 1 share jus to check) it got sold at price very much lower than the LTP it was showing at that moment, and LTP got changed to this lower price.
At dat same instance I bought 1 share jus to check, it got bought for price higher than LTP, again I sold 1 share it got sold for lower price. This Continued for N number of times.
But these fluctuations can't be seen in d charts now.
I have taken d screenshots of those trades which I can share if required.
And Piyush Pankaj is not d only share m facing this problem but all BSE shares if this continues I will be in great loss. already sold all Pankaj Piyush shares in loss in frustration.

So sum1 plz tell me what is d problem with BSE shares at zerodha

Zerodha clearly did execute my order twice today. I took trades using CO and modify Trigger prices as the price moves. Order was executed automatically. I called customer service then they told me to see their made up entry of executed orders. I will not recommend zerodha

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

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
