Reviews on Sharekhan

Karthik Reddy

28 April 2014

Opened my account with Sharekhan in 2010. Opened primarily because of Trade Tiger. Excellent trading platform, the best I'd seen in India. The brokerage is relatively higher compared to the new brokers providing services but I don't mind considering the s

Sharekhan brokerage is costlier compared to others but trading terminals are too good specially charting tool. Still they need to improve on customer support.

Trade Tiger is the best, no platform comes close at the moment. A new platform called 'Pi' is to be launched by Zerodha, we will have to wait and see who wins with regards to technology.

Best Trading platform in India but very high brokerage. Not suitable for day trader.

Sharekhan is where I started trading, they went wrong somewhere once the promoters sold out. The technology hasn't grown after 2008, and everyone else has caught up to them today and they are still where they were at the same costs.

Sharekhan did unauthorized trades from my account, this has happened without any intimation. I found my shares are sold out without my prior permission and without informing. I find that these people may trade on my account for there own profit.. they will only say, it is risky.. customer service after becomeing client is worst, advice not to go to them specially Pune branch.

Hi Sinha, which branch in Pune? I use to work as a dealer for Share Khan till 2011, as far as I know the official branch is located in Gymkhana, Shivajinagar. There are alot of sub brokers that misuse the Share Khan name and make their own rules and services. It is always good to inquire if it is a sub broker or main branch.
