Zerodha, Indias Best Brokerage Firm


It’s been a decade I started to trade, I traded over many brokerage firms, finally I accept and prefer ZERODHA as a best brokerage firm for trading in India. Here is my opinion. By the way NSE announced Zerodha as indias top trading firm with 8.47k Active traders in zerodha. Below is the report.



Mr. Nithin bootstrapped and founded ZERODHA in 2010 to overcome the hurdles he faced during his decade long stint as a trader. Today, ZERODHA has changed the landscape of the Indian brooking industry and is my top choice ZERODHA.

I have been trading since 2008, in last 10 years I have bypassed many stock brokerage firms of india. I keep changing brokerage firms because of the amount of money flown to them as brokerage or Fees.

I came to know one day that Zerodha charges No Brokerage for delivery trading.

We generally come across many reviews and people who had compared in many parameters have accepted Zerodha as their best choice, even I accept the same, few highlighted features of this firm are listed below



With many top Indian Brokerage Firms for 1 Lakh rupees you end up paying 300Rs to 800Rs brokerages which is unacceptable. However Zerodha Charges 20Rs even to 10 lakh worth transaction and as well no brokerages for delivery holding even for 10 years.

INTRADAY DELIVERY F&O CHARGES are 0.01%/20Rs Whichever Lower, Hence, Zerodha is Best Among many other Indian Brokerage Firms.
