Conclusion

Choice Broking is a SEBI registered full-service broker offering trading and advisory services with a 2-in-1 account facility to the NRIs. The company offers online trading platforms to NRI for stock markets and mutual fund investments. Being a full-service broker, the brokerage charges are slightly on the higher side making it a costly broker for the NRIs. The company has a dedicated research team that provides insights on the economy and the markets along with a wide range of research reports to its clients based on its fundamental and technical analyses.

Zerodha comes across as a decent choice for NRIs looking to invest in stock markets in India and want to save on brokerage. The company offers best-in-the-industry trading platforms and tools. However, NRIs have to open bank accounts with HDFC Bank, IndusInd Bank, IDFC FIRST Bank and Axis Bank to open a Zerodha NRI account. It also doesn't offer mutual fund investment services to NRIs. It charges a low flat-fee brokerage which makes it an attractive choice for NRIs.
