Please never subscribe Axis direct, it is managed by micky mouse team. They steal you money in no time, and they have there own reasons to debit each time. Mostly they kill you by delaying your payments for quite long. Their website is structured in a way that, you will not reach to the hidden menus to get your payments back. Customer service response takes only 48 hours, and always they ensure that pre drafted replies are reaching to you.

There are a lot of hidden charges. While opening the DMAT account they say the brokerage is zero for purchasing and while selling the charge Rs. 1/- per share. I purchased 200 shares of a company for Rs. 3754/- and sold all the 200 units for Rs. 4055/- thinking that I am not making any loss. But after deducting all their charges and taxes only Rs. 3352/- credited to my account.

No representative to attend our query. Brokerage rates not properly explained to trade/delivery and are very high with hidden charges. You are only concerned with your brokerage. I have an account with Axis since last 15 years, branch convinced to open Demat, now nobody come forward to answer my queries. Operating Demat for your profit not for me. Please resolve this issues. Planning to move to other brokers. Expecting your favorable response to continue with you.

Good - brokerages + customer service
Bad - trading platform
Do not have a singal platform perfect.
Web versin - can not see pending order
Ring Mobile - f&o open poisitio not available (intraday available)
Direct mobile - very slow and hang even on high end smartphone
Destop app - exit time showing messages that margin limit not set for clind

All problems are more than two months and technical team is not able to solve any of them.
