I would like to open a demat and trading account. I have collected information from HDFC Bank Ltd and India Infoline, but I am confused about their brokerage charges. I haven’t yet been able to find out brokerage and tax charges. Which are the other firms where I can open such an account? Which do you think is the best? Also, tell me about brokerage and tax charges.

From the tax point of view, all brokerages are the same as they levy the same taxes as stipulated by the laws. However, the brokerages are dependent on your bargaining power with these brokerages.
Primarily, all brokerage houses are similar. However, you should see the facilities and benefits that come along with the services and consider those facts. Indiabulls and India Infoline are the more popular ones. Among others paisabuilder by IDBI is also a good option to consider.
