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

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.

Zerodha is extremely baseless and pathetic firm with zero credibility. The number of complaints against them is out numbering. I opened an account in July and August of 2019. Closed the account even when I was not sent any credentials on next day. Called them thousands of time, emailed them and each time the dumb heads sitting on help desk acted like sitting ducks. Nothing happened till May 2020. This is a company which cannot close the account and now they have a debit balance against me because they did not close the account on time. People who run this company should be sent to Jail and sebi should take an action against them. Shame on such people.
