This is better 0 percent for Equity delivery. Whereas others charge as per the Brokarage plan one opts for . Brokrage charges are Rs25/- or 0.75 percent whichever is less. Incase some problem at their end in their server not executing order .For their fault it is customer to bear the loss ,if any. no plenty for opportunity lost by the customer on them. In nutshell charging is their motto without good service.

Dear Sir,
Zerodha charge ₹300 demat account maintenance charges. These are charged quarterly.

Except few brokers who offer lifetime free AMC (with one time deposit), all broker charges Demat AMC. Zerodha's Demat AMC is lowest among all the brokers.
