Bajaj Financial Securities Limited provides you an option to open free* Demat and Trading Account with zero Account opening charges and zero AMC for 1st year through its Freedom Pack. (AMC of Rs.365+GST is applicable from second year onwards).

  • Next you have to check the brokerage charges. Whenever an order you place in stock market gets executed, the broker charges a fee, called brokerage.
