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.....

IIFL is Thief, Looter, thug.... DO NOT OPEN AN ACCOUNT WITH IIFL.

This broker has lots of hidden charges and keeps on looting you using different methods.
I had an account here and even if I did not had any transaction, my account kept on debiting for various charges, when I tried to clarify it from broker, I never got good response.
IIFL agents dont know how to speak with customer. They will not show any respect to you.
Please don't open account here or you will be in loss for lifetime.

Poor Customer support. They charge Rs. 100/Min + GST, if we talk to relationship manager.
That was hidden at the time of account opening. They only meant for their brokerage charges.

Initially while opening the demat/trading account they offer "10 times margin" and the brokerage charge "0.05% on the total value traded" . but later when we actually start with the account the Margin and brokerage charges varies a lot based on the stocks which is totally disappointing. they don't even provide 5 times margin and charge higher brokerages and if we query for the same they start stating the conditions (which was hidden while opening account). they says "for this particular stock margin is not available / for this particular stock we charge brokerage based on qty not on the total value traded.
instance 1: regarding margin...when I queried them "why I am not able to place the trade, they says "for this particular stock margin is lesser or margin is not available". and when I ask "How do we get to know how much margin is available for which stock" they ask us to refer some list which is disgusting because everyone of us knows its very annoying to do it in rush time of placing trades.
Instance 2: Regarding Brokerage: they charged me 20 times higher brokerage compared to other brokerages houses, when I queried for the same they says "brokerage is charged based on the units for this particular stock" which is not correct (because when opening the account they told brokerage is charged based on total value traded).
Overall either in case of profit or loss the amount we pay as brokerage is multiple times higher than the other brokers.
