  2. Suresh, very useful article. A table would have made it much easier to compare. How does smaller players like FundsIndia compare?

  3. Is any of the above brokers offering tranding platform in Debit segment? Like trading in NCDs and Bonds

    1. They are full services brokers, however their charges are high. This list is where demat account provides are offering at low brokerage.

      1. Hi Suresh,

        Your information provided is certainly useful.

        I use Sharekhan and the charges are certainly lesser than that of ICICI Direct. (Annual Charge: Rs 400, Trading: .5% , intraday (.05%). They will also reduce it if you can bargain. I have trading charges lesser than half of what has been mentioned for ICICI Direct because of bargain 😉 however, they are lesser than that of ICICI without bargain too.

      2. Hi Suresh, do you mean sharekhan brokerage charges are high compared to these? I'm new..can you pls give an example 

  5. Waiting for the review of cochin shipyard ipo 

    1. Full details not yet available Manu. Pls wait.
