There brokerage structure of Sharekhan is flexible and depending on the volume you generate, you would be given a deal. You could try to negotiate with them to get a good deal.

Postpaid Brokerage Plans
This is one of the unique plans which is provided by Sharekhan. In this the brokerage is based on the margin money you keep in the account. The higher the margin money in the account the lower the brokerage structure. The brokerage varies from .5% for 25K margin to .1% if you keep a margin of 20 lakhs.

Prepaid brokerage Plans
In this, you pay the brokerage upfront and higher you prepay the better deal you can get on the brokerage charges, It varies from .5% for delivery if you prepay Rs 600 semi annually to .1% for Rs 200,000 brokerage.

Apart from this, SSKI also provide new and innovative trading platform like trade tiger which is fast online trading platform. They have also just launched Sharemobile which is there app for stock trading. They also provide phone trading at no extra cost for investors who are not very computer savvy.

This is one of the well know brokers in India but there brokerage is on the higher side. So if you are a investor and not a trader it can be a good option for you. With there vast network of officer, you will surely be able to find one near your home.
Apart from this there are some negatives associated with them. The first being they don’t provide banking service. So you have to deposit or take the money from the brokerage account.

So it would be a good option to choose one of the discount brokers rather than ShareKhan as they are able to provide much lower brokerage rate and same account of service. The one which I like the most is RKSV Security. They have great customer service and I have also moved my trading account to them. For now the account opening charges are waived.
