  1. Muhammad Sajid says:

    Kotak Securities of late seems to have gone low on quality broker consultants with company having more focus on financial (Banking) fronts their once USP that is Kotak Sec seem to be a tradeoff in this process. Hence would recommend to go for other players in the market!
