I went to sbi for opening saving account but for opening saving account they also open up demat and trading account without asking me or informing me about the same
And my amount debited from saving account on the account of opening charges for demat and trading account
Now as i want my debited amount back, i don't know what to do
As sbi people are not providing any proof for returning my money back

Please do not open trading or demat account with SBI Securities.. It is one of worst supported environment.. After they migrated to the new portal... I am facing lot of problems and there is NO SUPPORT AT ALL.

The worst part is the Relationship manager does not know anything about it.
He is recommending to close the account.
