Worst rm service. Had a rm by name of n aya na ka da m. She and her team never bother to pick customer calls or reply to mails , even when you are having big fno positions. They keep on escalating calls. When you mail to customer service, you only get ticket numbers as your token for queries which never gets resolved. Also there is a big limit problem especially in margin calculation. They assign stocks their own created groups and most of the stocks in B1 B2 category are put in Z groups un their software with 100 percent haircut. So they provide zero limit on such stocks even when you have a portfolio value of more than 10 lakhs. And last, but not the least, Very high charges are debited like 25 rupees per call charge if you call your rm and your trade gets executed. And 60 rupees are debited for a physical contract note. Stay away from such cheaters and frauds

IIFL The Worst brokerage Firm

I dont recommend IIFL for your Dmat services. High service charges, there are few services like Swing Trader which is useless and they trap you and make you buy the service. you will never have chance to unsubscribe from that service. they keep debiting your account with out your knowledge. Ruthless service executives, very poor customer service. You never get a chance to speak to your RMs for any kind of issues or escalations.

Dear Sir,

We are not sure about your feedback. Cold you please provide more detail.

The Demat Debit Transaction charge is 0.05% (Min ₹15 and max ₹100).

It have more brokerage on equity that 0.05% or ₹0.05 per share unit on both side i.e if you buy an idea share @5.70 and you sold it @5.80 .then the brokerage is ₹.10(10 paise) ..and if you trade same at quantity of 100. Then,the brokerage is ₹10(Ten Rupees). i.e. while of you calculate it , it's only the profit that you created but brokerage is your profit and you have to pay extra charges. So finally you have to pay them after you earn profit too.....
