  13. Thiagy says:

    Zerodha Should remember these are all temporary, Which changes every year. Unless they improve their customer service which is yet pathetic.
    They will realize this one day by the time, everything would have gone ashes.
    Especially when they have some real useless fellows at their Customer Care Governing people at higher tiers.
    I am not a frustrated customer, but someone who have stopped Using Zerodha & someone recommends other brokerage with better customer service.
    I am sure zerodha will delete this comment as it usually does to non-favorable comments.

    Unless zerodha improves their scale to Customer Service, Their is no stopping of a downtrend.
    We know enough big enterprises who vanished because of their poor customer service. Zerodha will soon be one such service if they do not change.

  52. Badhri says:

    Hi Nithin,

    Its well deserved appreciation for Zerodha.. Really Great n Congrats Guys….!!!

    But one constructive feedback, I hope you will definitely look into it :

    These days whenever we ( including my friends who are also Zerodha clients) call Zerodha (080-40402020), it takes atleast 3 mins to get someone respond and few times after 3 mins there is no automated voice also. Even Call & Trade it takes too much waiting time.

    Zerodha is growing very fast and I think there is not enough associates in customer care department which results in higher waiting time for clients because I guess they are already busy in other calls. So can you please deploy adequate no.of associates or someother way to reduce waiting time ?

    Its purely positive feedback and I am only telling waiting time can be reduced.

    Thanks Nithin.

  53. S Sinha says:

    Looks like other brokerage houses are also reducing their commissions inorder to attract retail investors. IIFL is offering Rs 9.99 as brokerage fees . Since IIFL has a better trading platform (both desktop and mobile) compared to Zerodha, it’s high time Zerodha did something to improve the user experience. Although the launch of Pi is awaited and I have high hopes that it will be a unique experience using it. But I’m deeply disappointed with the terrible mobile app which makes it virtually unusable. So at present, unless one is using the desktop platform, there is no other way to trade in the market considering the poor usability of HTML and mobile platform.

    I do hope that Zerodha starts taking these issues seriously and comes out with better web and mobile applications so that more users can trade actively. Besides We are still waiting for the launch of “pi”. It’s sad that it has been delayed for so long.

    • Alok says:

      Yeah, hoping that Pi is out soon. btw, IIFL is offering only web based platform with this flat fee model. No desktop or mobile version. Also IIFL has hidden charge, exchange charges at Zerodha is Rs 210 per crore and with IIFL it is Rs 380 per crore. So this whole Rs 9.99 by IIFL is just a gimmick.

      • roshani.sharma says:

        I opened an account with IIFL and placed a trade just to check. It is actually 9.99 rupees and no other charges. Just asked for desktop and mobile version and they said it is there and they can send link but I didn’t try bcoz I am comfortable on web.
