A good experience, when compared with other discount brokers. Their charges are way less than others. Only suggestion is to work on the app a little bit. Otherwise a big thumbs up!

Had few growing up challenges with them (from platform plus expectations perspective) and after 4 months, saving tons and tons of money (am both a passiveaggressive plus day trader (whatever multibagger means) with absolutely no guidance from no one.

have one more account with another low cost trader and after spending few thousands on brokerage fees (for nothing), finvasia is like manna from heaven

very simple user interface (am not in to exotic stop-loss etc. trading...and having no margin facilities aid me to control my gambling instincts to only the money in my account (hehehehehhehehe) really thanks to finvasia......this platform is only for folks who have money to play, not the emi morons expecting millions on day trading with OPM (other peoples money)

customer service is really very amenable and friendly for absolutely necessary tasks. if you make a mistake, you better own you're in absolute control of your account

Anyways, to make the long story short......folks are just crazy to use other brokers

FINVASIA is Our own indian Robinhood !!!!!!

"Brokerage average"...? Is brokerage zero not enough for you?
Then what about a -10 or -20 bokerage like when you do a trade finvasia will pay you 10 or 20 rs. Is that enough?

Scalpert & NSE NOW platforms are excellent, online customer support is very good.
For quarterly settlement, Finvasia force you to trade, for a large amount, other wise, all your holding stocks will go to Demat account, no more available for trade, they charge 9/- per scrip, for returning it back to trading account again you have to pay 9/- per scrip, so for investors, consider it as 9/- per trade. If Finvasia can avoid these charges, then they are the

Best broker to go with! I used to trade with zerodha but their pathetic customer service and platform glitches forced me to look for another broker. Then I switched to finvasia and it's been more than a year now and I feel it was the best decision to go with these guys. My costs have reduced significantly besides zero brokerage other services are also free. Platform is stable and glitch free, best thing about them is that they really care about their customers; whenever I need them they always respond promptly.
