I was not completely aware of the following charges that ICICIDirect levied on every transaction.
The general brokerage that is charged for delivery based trading is 0.75% of
the trade value or Rs.25 whichever is higher.
For the transaction value less than Rs.1000 the flat brokerage of 2.5 % will
Service Tax @ 12.36% of brokerage and securities transaction tax @ 0.125% of
trade value are in additional
It is always better to transact for more than Rs. 3335.00. If you transact below this amount you are loosing money.
